BENEFITING: CROATIAN RELIEF SERVICES INC
EVENT DATE: May 23, 2013
Admit it. You love birthday parties. And you also love giving back. You know that warm, fuzzy feeling you get after you've done something selfless? Good news! You get to combine your love of parties and giving back to make a difference in the lives of 47 orphaned children in Haiti.
Most of have you heard me talk about the Cardinal Stepinac Children's Center in Haiti ad nauseum. You've heard about Jean Richard's love of photography, Jackson's struggles with asthma, and Pierre Lyne's adorable pout. These kids need our help in so many ways. They don't have parents to feed them, buy them clothes, or send them to school. Who do they have to help them with those? YOU. That's it. You and me. Yup, that's right, I'm calling you out on your social responsibility, because without people like you, these 47 kids wont make it. Simple as that. They need you.
More specifically, they need a new refrigerator. Can you imagine what its like to feed 47 people 3 meals a day, every day? Its tough work, and our nannies and cooks are amazing for doing it. But they need a new fridge. Without a fridge, we can't store fresh fruits, vegetables, or meats for healthy meals. Without a fridge, it is remarkably more difficult to ensure our kids are well nourished. So we need you to help us raise $2,000 for a fridge. It's not cool. Its not sexy. Its just a fridge. But it can make such a difference in their quality of life.
So come out to Joshua Tree Bar (513 3rd Avenue) for Miranda's birthday on Thursday, May 23rd, from 6-9pm and drink for a cause. If I know my friends, you don't need an excuse for a party. And if you can't make it, please help us by donating here! Our kids need your help, and we can't do it without you!
