THE STORY:

 Hi Everyone!  

We are reaching out to you, our family and friends, for some help.  As many of you may know, Rachel and I (along with our friend Liz from Boston!) are running a 10K in NYC on September 23 to raise money for the FEED Foundation.  This foundation fights hunger and malnutrition around the world.

Did you know that 1 in 5 American children are wondering where they will get their next meal?  We didn't either before deciding to fight for this cause!  To think that we are fortunate enough to have an abundance of food at our fingertips, while there are those out there who have nothing.  Our feeling of "hunger" before dinner is nothing compared to what starving individuals feel everyday.  While it is sad to think of these things, there is much positive to come from it-- because WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  

The slogan for this event is "Run.  Influence.  Change the World."  We, the "Island Gaze", will take care of the running part.  What we are asking from all of you is to help us fund raise!  Your donation and other monies raised through this event is targeted to provide free meals to children in schools.  The three outcomes of providing a free meal to children in school are: 1.  Children do not go hungry, so body and brain functions properly, 2. School enrollment increases (often doubles) and 3. Performance increases so kids stay in school and are able to learn more effectively.  When kids are given a free school meal, they are often given a fighting chance.  The best part is....you can help!

Please help us change the world! 

Thank you for all of your support (prayers, encourage and donations).  We appreciate it all!

Love,

Valerie and Rachel
