Hello! So I know I posted yesterday but a good blogging buddy of mine contacted me recently about a fundraising venture she is doing and I thought the best way I can help her is by sharing this with as many people as I can. So please read below!
Wanna spend the night with me?
Witty, right? I think so, too. For those of you who haven’t seen my previous guest post on Teen Enthusiasm, my name is Karina and I blog over at Cafe Kitsch (see link below!). I go to school at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Every year, Rutgers hosts a Dance Marathon (#RUDM) that raises money for the Embrace Kids Foundation. The Embrace Kids Foundation is dedicated to helping families of children with cancer in the New Jersey area. All of its services, which range from counseling to financial assistance to the use of learning centers, are offered completely free of charge. Every year, hundreds of Rutgers students participate in the marathon by meeting a specified fundraising goal and pledging to remain standing for 32 HOURS STRAIGHT. Yes, people actually do this willingly…for a wonderful cause.
It is with the organization Comic Relief, who provides funding to families and children in Africa and the UK who are living impoverished lives. Thousands of kids die each year in Africa due to not being treated for malaria and other life-threatening diseases. Comic Relief, as the name suggests, provides financial relief to these people through the use of comedy. People raise money through fun fundraisers and sponsored events and it is given to Comic Relief, who then use the money to give the impoverished families malaria tests, vaccines, food, and shelter. For more information, definitely check out their website: http://www.comicrelief.com
This year my friends and I are doing our own fundraiser for Comic Relief. However, as I cannot yet give you all the details (check back next week for more information and the release of our documentary, telling the tale of all that we did) I can show you a great video that shows how some people help out on Red Nose Day. It’s from my favorite British twins, Jack and Finn, and it’s definitely worth a watch.
I hope you will all give Red Nose Day a bit of your attention and possibly donate. Thanks!
