From Hilary's perspective

Hi Everyone!

It's here! "Pie Challenge Time" is here! I feel totally out of my comfort zone asking for money. However, once a year I make an exception and swallow my pathetic pride to benefit some very precious children in Kyrgyzstan.
My little girl is in a family where she is loved, safe, provided for, protected, well fed and receives excellent medical care. Many children of Anara's birth country are not so fortunate. Many children in the orphanages of Kyrgyzstan are merely surviving and many will have life long medical issues due to institutionalization and lack of proper nutrition. This year's
Pie Challenge has a new twist. The donations will provide not only a small Christmas gift and a meal out but, a year's worth of vitamins for each of the 2000 children that will be sponsored this year. Here in the United States vitamins are often just an extra added boost to our nutrition. In Kyrgyzstan vitamins can truly be the difference between life and death.
I understand that the holidays are fast approaching and money will be tight. Five dollars is a huge gift to these orphans. Many charities and organizations send you information and a place to check off a box with $20-$100+ leaving most of us to feel like cheapskates if we can't contribute that much. The Pie Challenge is not like that. Honestly, the change you dig out from under your couch cushions can be used to greatly bless someone.
Between now and Thanksgiving would you please join me in praying for these special children? PRAYERS AND PENNIES ARE POWERFUL! If you would like to donate you can follow this link: http://actofkindness.blogspot.com/p/pie-in-face-for-orphans.html There is a "DONATIONS" button on the right side of the screen beneath the list of Pie Challenge participants. Please be sure to put my name in the memo if you decide to donate so that it can be applied towards my total so that my children can take turns hitting me with the pies ;) Toby and Mia have both agreed that they will take a pie in the face with mom if we can reach our goal of $500 so that's 6 for the price of 1!. Together we can bring hope and health to the orphans of Kyrgyzstan. Thank you so much for your prayers.

Blessings, Hilary
