Hello Friends! Welcome and thank you for checking this out! There are some pretty cool numbers and details below. This is what I am up to and how you can make a difference in my life and the lives of hundreds of undernourished children.
I am running a 5k every month in 2014. That is 12 5k's. That is 3.1 miles x 12. That is 37.2 miles. (Obviously this doesn't include all the running I will be doing in between.) So, I was thinking - I am already going to be working to better my life and health...how can I use that opportunity to make a difference bigger than me?
I am chairing the Stop Hunger Now meal packaging event at Westover Hills UMC in January of 2015. That is 12 months from now. (See where I am going with this?) To give you an idea of the aggressive goal Westover Hills UMC has set, our 2014 meal packaging event is Saturday, January 18th from 1-4. Our goal this year has been to raise enough money to package 25,000 meals which is approximately $6,250. If you know me, you know I will want to raise more, package more and help more people than ever. If you are intrigued and want to know what this is all about, I welcome everyone to get a feel for what an awesome event this is and come spend an hour with me on the 18th packaging meals - that way you will know what you are doing before you come volunteer next year this time!! :)
One meal costs $.25. Which means $25.00 feeds 100 kids. $1 per mile I race, or $37.20 provides 148.8 meals. So, bottom line - a little bit of money makes a tremendous difference in the lives of children around the world. It's bigger than that one meal. Parents send their kids to school just so they know they will get fed - which means some of these children would not be getting food OR an education if it weren't for the Stop Hunger Now programs around the world.
Sponsor me per mile I race
- $.25/mile ($9.30-37.2 meals)
- $.50/mile ($18.60-74.4 meals)
- $1.00/mile ($37.20-148.8)
Sponsor me per race
- $1/race ($12-48 meals)
- $2/race ($24-96 meals)
Sponsor me per meal
- 25 meals = $6.25
- 50 meals = $12.50
- 75 meals = $18.75
- 100 meals = $25.00
I am asking you to encourage me along the way this year and most importantly, be a difference in the life of children.
