23

You guys are awesome!

So far 23 orphans will be enjoying Christmas this year because of YOU! 23 kids will get to experience a day full of fun, food, gifts and most of all, love and hope. 23 children who otherwise have nothing, will know that they matter, that people care.

I wanted to share a message from John, who has dedicated his life to helping the people of Beck's birth country:

It is more then just a Christmas Party, it is bringing a Hope that we are counting on to, in some cases, sustain life ....to give boys like Muksat reason NOT to try to commit suicide again.....

I try my best to simply tell the story here at actofkindness, and leave it to you to decide what to do with it, but today... I am asking please please please help us.... you see when this next week is over, and the challenge is done... we need to sit down and decide... who is NOT getting anything for Christmas this year.....
Please don't make us have to make that decision ....



Thank you to everyone who has logged onto John's site and donated money. I am overwhelmed by your generosity.
$5 will allow another child to experience a day full of wonder and hope. It's not too late! Let's not leave any child out.

These folks do amazing work. Thank you John and company!

I just went and checked out some more of John's site. That "Psycho" inspired video was hilarious!

I wish I could have done more, but I feel good knowing I made Christmas possible for two kiddos. Really amazing (and a bit sad) as to how far $5 can go. So...when do you get pied?

Mala said...

Samsmama - Thank you so much. Just imagine how much excitement those two kids will get to experience because of you.

(OK I've rephrased that sentence 5 times and each time it still sounds a little dirty)

Mary said...

somehow I missed this post the first time around- but I've donated now.
Amazing how little can help so much- thanks for bringing this to our attention!

What Mary said. I am continually amazed by how far a little money will go, and by how much we have in comparison to other parts of the world. Thanks for being so involved, Mala.

I'll throw a pie in your face for free!

Mala said...

Mary - Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MtnMama - It is amazing. We would go out to dinner (4 adults) and the total bill would come out to $8. Crazy. But sad that most of the people in KG don't make that in a week.

Cary - Thank you for keeping that offer PG, you know, for the kids ; )

MtnMama said...

I know, Mala. Which is why I donated even though I'm unemployed. I spend that much on Scotch; how can I justify that? When it comes to kids, I'm a soft touch. Adults don't get to me in the same way.

oh, and the Canadian rate exchange was a fun and educational experience! ;)

Mala said...

Thank you MtnMama!!! So very generous!


(hmmmm, do I tell her there was a spot for Canadian donations and a seperate for American? Nawwwwwwwww. )

Did you make sure they aim a pie at me?
Thanks again.

Samsmama said...

Dang, girl! You're up to $175!?! That's awesome!

I am seriously laughing at the Canadian/American donation thing. Poor MtnMama...so pretty...

Mala said...

Samsmama - $175!!!!!!! I'm speechless!

Harmony said...

Oh man, this made me cry. I hope that no one gets turned away. Good work Mala!

MtnMama said...

Let's just say I'm comfortable enough with myself to reveal my bimbo moments and leave it at that! Is it funnier or more pathetic that I work(ed) in IT, and still didn't comprehend the website?
