BENEFITING: CHILDRENS LANTERN INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 19, 2015
As you may or may not know my roots run deep with Children's Lantern. This past summer I made the heartbreaking decision to step down as the feeding coordinator of this bomb charity. Since I'm not heading the Christmas Meals program up this year, the least I can do is trade my birthday for it. If you were planning on blessing me with a birthday gift this year, would you please consider donating some cash money to help feed local families in need this Christmas instead?
The Saturday before Christmas every year, Children's Lantern volunteers take to the 6 county area to deliver a meal to families in need that have nominated by community members. 100% of what you give will go directly to this program! A small gift of $20 will buy one meal and let's face it, I spend more than that when I run to Walmart "real quick". Don't click the X in corner yet!
If giving monetarily isn't in the budget, could you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and nominate a family in need? Children's Lantern can’t possibly know every family that could use a meal to brighten their spirits or help them through the holidays but you guys know people. Come on, it's the least you could do, since it's for my birthday and all.
P.S. If you are interested in delivering meals, hit up my email as well and I will pass it along!
