You’re never too young to raise awareness about giving to children, especially those who need the most help, like the children in Somalia who suffer from the 2011 disaster.
A one-year old boy celebrated his birthday in a totally different way than how most babies do. His parents hosted the birthday party as a charity night with one purpose in mind: to raise funds for malnourished children in Somalia. The party was held in the front yard of their house with lots of entertainments for the kids: jumper, reptile show, hot dog stand, merry-go-round, cotton candy cart.. and of course delicious foods for the adults. It was performed in a casual fine dining atmosphere with full music entertainment.
It was a very inspiring when his parents shared their hearts for the unfortunate children, and how they wanted to open a path for him to be a generous giver, to have compassionate heart, and to count others in all of the blessings he’ll have in life.
Instead of bringing gifts for the birthday boy, they kindly asked the guests to bring monetary gift that will be given directly to the kids in Somalia through World Harvest (www.worldharvest.cc), a humanitarian organization that has been helping people in Somalia. That night, Golden Nest, Inc also launched “Healthee’Nut F 100 THERAPEUTIC Milk”. It’s a peanut based spread that is packaged into single serve packets suitable for use by children aged 6 to 24 months. Healthee’Nut contains a blend of iron, iodine, sodium, vitamin A, C, D, E, K, the B-complex vitamins, folate, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and other ingredients in lesser dosage. Each packet contains 500 calories. It’s intended for severely malnourished patients, in a ready to eat format. We all got to taste the Healtee Nut F100!
There were about 200 people attended the party and almost $20,000 raised
As a token of appreciation, The host of the party gave each kids a pair of TOM SHOES (www.toms.com) to help the kids in Africa. What a great way to celebrate the first birthday!
By the way, have I told you that the host of the party is the owner of Golden Nest, Inc (www.goldennest.com)?
