Help Us Help Them!

What would a new nonprofit that serves orphans do without literally running into people on the street, or in this day and age… on Twitter…or LinkedIN who want to help orphans? (See sidebar links).

Jason and Daughter Emma

Notice how great this blog looks??? Thank you Jason Orth for helping with this blog and working to redesign our website. Jason lives in Portland with his wife and 7 children. He started his first business (screen printing) when he was 16 and he’s been self-employed for 19 of his 21 working years. Most of his businesses have been in the IT industry, 5 in real estate development and most recently web development and search engine optimization. Today, Jason is focusing more on living simply to spend more time with his family and to work with nonprofits… particularly those involved with orphans, clean water projects and economic development. And isn’t that lucky for us!

Other Shout Outs! Thank you Judi Rabideau for finishing the list of medical professionals I asked you to create for me! And for helping with the fund raising manual! Also, thank you Blake Peterson with RBC Investment Services in Minneapolis for hosting our Minnesota Give planning sessions. I am so overwhelmed with gratitude to those who are doing something to help.

The help of supporters and volunteers are so imp0rtant to what we do. It frees me to mobilize for fund raising so we can get these projects built…for the children.

HELP US HELP THEM
Most of us have no idea the conditions the vulnerable children in Africa are experiencing day to day. I receive updates from The Raining Season, a nonprofit rescuing vulnerable children in Sierra Leone. It’s heart wrenching to read. But, the lives of orphans and poor children is a horrific reality and well, that’s why we are doing what we are doing. Please help us help them. Donate online if you can.

FUND RAISING UPDATE:

 My goal is to have 4 more fundraisers this year in hopes of funding a project by year end. To be sure, the organizations on our site are doing their own fund raising, but we can help them.

FAST AND FURIOUS LIVE AUCTION BENEFIT:

Looking Over the Auction Items

THANKS to all those who attended and donated at our Fast N Furious Live Auction at my home. Our goal is to fund a project by year end, and I want to have four more fund raisers before Dec. 31… So we are working fast and furious! This event idea came from supporter Lori Fuchs’ sister who has raised funds for World Vision. Thanks Lori, Kim and Debbie for your kind support. These women are doing something more! We raised $1,500 and people really enjoyed themselves. If anyone else wants to try this at home, it’s a great evening, and helps a worthy cause!

Featured Project :

Friends Orphans School: This group in Kampala Uganda has requested $10,000 to complete the roof on 5

classrooms they have built. Seth Eggessa, a wonderful Uganda man I met introduced me to Roger Dean, who will be traveling to Uganda this week. He will come back with a report on the organization and the project.
Angel Of Mercy:  Relindis Moffor and I are going to plan a fund raising
event to help her get started building an orphanage in Cameroon for 80 children in her care with HIV/AIDS. She’s a nurse and is from Cameroon. She and Mary Tjosvold from Mary T Inc.  provide educational and medical care for these children on an ongoing basis. If you can send $1000 for a
scholarships to help care for a child suffering with HIV/AIDS, please do.  Otherwise, if your group or church would like to adopt this project to help get it built, let’s do it! Email me.

Floriane Robins Brown is having a fund raiser on November 7 in Minneapolis for the Nibakure Childrens’ Village featured on our site. She is in Phase one of the building project. We are working with her to raise funds for her project. Email if you want more information.
