Â»Feed a smileÂ«
"Clean your plate. Just think of all those poor, starving children in Africa that would do anything to have food like yours."
If your mother was like mine, this is a line that you heard on a regular basis. I always answered with â€“ â€śOkay, then send it to them!â€ť Well, thatâ€™s exactly what Iâ€™m doing now â€“ and so can you. We call this feeding program â€śFeed a smileâ€ť.
On our office compound and in their schools in Nakuru, Kenya very poor children are fed on a daily basis. We do our best to provide the children with a nutritious, warm meal every day â€“ but with more than 400 mouths to feed, it isnâ€™t easy. So, weâ€™ve come up with an idea.
How many times have you wondered just what would be the perfect present for someone who already has everything? - Or even for yourself? We have the answer. Celebrate a birthday/anniversary/holiday â€“ whatever with more than 400 children â€“ without having to wash up afterwards!
$115 is the minimum donation to feed the children a wholesome vegetable stew - any amount exceeding that will pay for more, for example: meat, bread, sweets, cookies, drinks, more expensive vegetables (like potatoes) fruit.
The children will not only celebrate the honored person, they will also hold them in their prayers while saying Grace. Photos will be taken of the party with the children and a personalized board message and then sent directly to the provided e-mail address. If asked for in advance, the party could be held ahead of time so that the photo would arrive in time to congratulate the person on his/her special day.
