YEMEN 10K

The "What" 

"Yemen 10K" is an aggressive drive between now through the end of year to raise $10K for the children in Yemen.  The situation is incredibly severe, so much so that according to the U.N.  a child dies every ten minutes.  This is our opportunity to help, ALL proceeds will go directly to those in need, 100% of all monies collected, which means no "administrative" or "handling" fees will be applied from the proceeds received for this effort so we can maximizing the impact.

I respectfully ask that you contribute in whichever way you can, if you cannot contribute monetarily please contribute by spreading the word, email this to your friends/family.  

The "Why" 

There are a lot of great causes to give to, one equally as great as the other, I want to be able to try and help those in need in Yemen, there are many reasons for that not the least of which being that I happened to have been born there or perhaps because the situation is reaching a pivotal stage and action is no longer optional.  Since the spring of 2017 the famine is threating over 17 million people of which 3.3 million are children and pregnant or lactating women.  This is NOT about politics, religion and anything in between, this is simply an effort to urge those of us that can help to do so.  We can HELP, we are fighting against starvation and any contribution goes a long way; help me help them so we can do our part, we are accoutable to our brothers/sisters around the world, the things we take for granted everyday might be a dream for others.

The "How"

All proceeds collected will be sent to directly to Sana'a Yemen and will be disturbed with packages that included the following:

1 - Flour
2 - Rice
3 - Oil
4 - Sugar
5 - Tomato Paste
6 - Dates
7 - Beans
8 - Water

 The appeal of this project is that monies will be handled directly by myself and sent to a Yemeni contact that will distribute the food/water divided equally by individual recipients.  

If the $10K goal is attained, there will be 200 packages that will be distributed, each package will be able to serve a family of 5, that means over 1,000 people! 


The "When" 

Immediately after the goal of $10,000 is acheieved (sooner the better) or an end date of 12/31/17.  Monies to be sent to Yemen by January 1, 2018 short of goal being acheived prior to 12/31 at which point monies will be sent within 24-48 hours.  

This is an amazing opportunity to have your dollars go to a place that is in dire need of food and water, individually we cannot change the world but together we can slowly make a difference.
