2019 Holiday Gifts for CameroonOne & Kairos Kids
Total to raise is $365 USD.
BiblePay currently supports a number of charities. Two charities we work closely with are CameroonONE and Kairos. Below is a community driven effort to give holiday gifts to the children sponsored by both charities. CameroonONE supports children in Africa. Kairos support children in the Phillipines.
CameroonONE and Kairos holiday gifts for children
I've been pondering for a few weeks and I'm convicted to help poor children in the two charities CameroonONE and Kairos with holiday gifts & toys. I'm sure the kids need food & rice, but what kid wouldn't want to be shown they matter and being doted over by strangers? How can we reach the BBP community and/or general crypto community to act? I emailed Todd @ CameroonOne and Andrew @ Kairos and they are both open to the idea. They already do some sort gift giving, but I think we can be involved to enhance the giving. They can take proceeds and from their respective countries purchase gifts from the local businesses.
I wanted to include a "card", but seeing how we are from all over the world, does a digital card makes more sense? When you donate, feel free to include a note, letter, or a link to an image (drawing, letter, etc) that you want to include with payment. We will compile the notes together and submit with whatever funds we raise.
Statement from CameroonONE and Kairos
I spoke to Todd @ CameroonONE and Andrew Scribner @ Kairos.
CameroonONE: 49 kids @ $5-10 each for the holiday gift/toy/party. $245 to $490
So, between POOM and the other children that BiblePay has been sponsoring, there are currently 49 orphans sponsored by BiblePay. The village is near a relatively large town with markets and so our field team can have access to any number of gifts for the children; it sort of depends on the level of gift that we want to provide. We can allocate $5/child and get a small gift for everyone or $10/child and get a more significant gift.
That said, there are many orphaned children and displaced children living in the village, so if there are excess funds then we can always put it toward the Christmas party that they all attend.
Kairos: 20 kids @ $7 each. So far they've raised $20, so need $120 to reach the target. That's for gifts and a fun party.
