_What its all about _
starts now, ends Dec 1st
In 2008, an adoptive mother from Kyrgyzstan , Cindy Lajoy, recognized the overwhelming number of children that we support, and wanted to do something .. so she put out a challenge .. If her friends could raise $1000 by Thanks Giving , she would let her kids through a pie in her face . That challenge has grown each year to where it is today .
What I am finding most incredible is that many of the challengers, people not only willing , but asking to take a pie in the face are kids that have been adopted from Kyrgyzstan. They remember first hand the excitement when the actofkindness team would show up for Christmas celebrations with them .
To meet this goal, we are seeking out corporate donors for the vitamins ( if you have any contacts, we would appreciate the help) but are ready to purchase some as well.. The $10 will also cover the transportation of the vitamins and the safe and secure storage and distribution over the next year .
So here is the breakdown
40 challengers at $500 each will provide for a total of 2000 orphans
You can donate using the Paypal buton to the right , or if you are donating from Canada , use the Canada helps button .. BE SURE TO INDICATE WHO you are sponsoring to receive a pie in the memo box that will appear while on the donation screen .. Every night , the totals next to the participants will also be updated. When they reach $500 they will be notified, and they will let someone throw a pie in their face and it will be posted for all to see.
The parties will begin in Kyrgyzstan from the week of Dec 25 ( Christmas day ) ,Jengish and Emma, and Bekah along with our incredible team are in Kyrgyzstan and making plans now.
As the parties take place, we will post the events right here on actofkindness
Thank you all so much for being a part of this life changing event.
I am reminded by what a friend told me once .. "start by doing what you can do and before you know it you will be doing what others said could not be done."
If you would be willing to take a pie in the face if your friends raise $500 please let me know and I will ad you to the list .
