1 in 200 chance to win an IPAD2,Help Empower Orphaned Girls In Kenya!

Have you ever said "I wish I could do more to help others."  Well, a woman by the name of Raquel (ROCKY) Roberge Turner did.  She did some research on "Volunteer Africa" in 2006 and never looked back.  A year later, Rocky travelled to Kenya and was assigned to an an all girls orphanage outside Nairobi.  She met the girls and fell in love.

Since then, Rocky founded Mother's Fighting For Others (MFFO).  She has been instrumental in raising money and gathering school supplies, clothes and other necessities to help to empower and educate the girls of Saint Monica's. She has brought the girls of Saint Monicas into the hearts of caring people around the globe.

Hey, What about the IPAD? I am getting there, I promise.

I first heard about MFFO through Audrey June-Forshey, a realtor friend in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  Audrey and her husband Mike host a fundraiser for MFFO at their home.  This year's fundraiser is on Saturday evening, October 15th.  Sydney and I are going.  When I asked Audrey if it was OK to bring Sydney, she answered ABSOLUTELY!  I am so excited to be a part of this event, and proud that I can bring Sydney.  As far as I am concerned, it is never too early to teach our children about making a difference. What better folks to share with my 6 year old than folks who are doing more than putting their money where their mouth is.  They are involved, they have travelled to meet and love these girls in person. They are allowing me and so many others to be a part of their mission, to change the world one child at a time. 

I know, I know, you want to know about the 16GB WiFi iPad2!

A part of this years fundraiser is a virtual MFFO Gift of Education fundraiser.  Each ticket is only $25 and only 200 will be sold.  Selling all 200 tickets will raise enough money to educate 3 of Saint Monica's girls for a full year.  The iPad was donated by Zeek Interactive.  The folks at Zeek really want to see their donation raise money to help these children.

Enough already how do I get a ticket?

Just go to http://giftofeducation11.eventbrite.com/   You can use paypal or a credit card to pay for your tax deductible (as always, talk to your tax advisor) chance to win.

Less than .001 of the Active Rain Members would just have to buy 1 ticket to educate 3 girls for 1 year! Won't you help?

Wait, I want to come to the MFFO Fundraiser and Auction on Saturday! 

Woo Hoo!  Just contact Audrey-June Forshey for more information at AudreyForshey@gmail.com or 301-938-8028.

I can't make the Fundraiser and I don't need no stinking iPad but I want to help the girls of Saint Monica's, what now?

You can learn more at the MFFO website.  You can purchase items the girls need, help defray the cost of shipping or donate money directly to MFFO. 

Take a chance on an IPAD and on orphaned girls in Kenya.  Either way, you will be a winner!!  Hurry, Tickets are selling FAST!!
