Dear Family and Friends...

I hope this note finds you well and embracing the coming days of Fall! My favorite time of year! Most of you are aware that September is my birthday month.

My birthday wish this year is to help the orphanage in Sri Lanka. Rather than sending me gifts, cards, or spending money on postage to send me something, PLEASE donate to my non-profit, Models Doing More

If you do not wish to make a donation, please consider sending bedding, art supplies, used cameras, or mosquito netting... as I will be bringing the children as much as I can on my next journey in November. I send an endless supply of love to all of you! Thank you!

Please watch our newest video from our trip in May. This video is more indepth than the previous one we posted and showcases the conditions the children are living in and what they are most in need of... besides love, attention, and education

Thank you for watching and please contact me with your thoughts and questions... I welcome your ideas and emails!

Hello family, friends, and strangers... I hope this Sunday finds you enjoying family time, relaxation, prayer, meditation, and summer travel. Please watch, share, learn more, and view our recent video, footage, from our trip to Sri Lanka.

The orphanage is in need of everything... and it feels as though all 44 boys have been forgotten. I go to sleep at night seeing their faces. I look forward to sending them more donations so they will have access to food and nutrition.

MDM will be bringing a team of 'Model Ambassadors' to Sri Lanka and India in the Fall. Our goal is to bring clean water to the children at the orphanage and sponsors. We are always looking for creatives, artists, and like-minded individuals to assist us as well as our mission. We are excited with the about of volunteers who would like to take such time off to travel and help the children as well as animals.

Thank you again to those who donated before and or during our trip. Please continue to help us raise funds for the fall 2013 trip and most importantly please help us feed the children. Thank you! Sending abundant love and blessings...

Models Doing More (MDM) - 501(c)(3) - is an ongoing mission to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and animals in impoverished countries. MDM provides channels for ‘Model Ambassadors’ to advocate goodwill with Transmedia integration.

Our current goal is to raise money to continue to assist an orphanage in Sri Lanka of 44 boys. The children do not have access to clean water, food, or nutrition. Please view our transmedia video from our recent volunteer trip in May. The video link on our you tube channel is

Models Doing More is dedicated to providing education, assistance, and sustainability to our most vulnerable global neighbors. MDM actively partners with grassroots organizations to develop long-term educational, medical, and emotional support for disadvantaged children and animals.

The donations made will go directly to the children's orphanage and the most current NGO we are sending the 'Model Ambassadors' to volunteer and work. The Models' lodging, food, and travel within the country is their own responsibility. $125 donation feeds all 44 children at the orphanage a weeks worth of food (vegetarian meals)

Models Doing More is one of the few non-profits that has a team of Model Ambassadors who are ready and waiting to go to any developing country that is in need. There is no place we will not go. Instead of assuming the needs of local NGO’s on the ground, MDM takes a hands on approach and places a team of ‘Model Ambassadors’ directly into the field where they spend several weeks in the villages. Spending time in the outpost villages helps the MDM Team understand what the locals truly need and creates and implements a lasting friendship of sustainability. The ‘Model Ambassadors’ use their notoriety and passion to educate the viewers back home with the filming of Model Evolution and TALK GOOD. This way they leave behind a message that resonates long after they finish their volunteer services. MDM continues the on-going relationship and follows up with the communities in the specific location by forging strong relationships with local leaders. A new team of Models may go to the same area, but the approach is simple: it is a lasting evolution...of giving... it is ongoing and endless.

***We also welcome any private donations such as solar energy, water filters, and other innovations that would help the children and local communities.
