Initially my plan was to have a party! I have always dreamed of a wedding day when all my friends will come together but my sister took ill and I had to keep the tempo down. As my 40th approached I started planning for a celebration but wonder how humane it would be considering my sister is still on the divine healing journey. At the point when I was tossing the ball of "should I, should I not" God reminded me of a special gift that I received about 10 years earlier. This became the genesis of the ACE 4.0 Project which I have created to celebrate 40 years of God's faithfulness and love. Though this is a four part project, I am seeking funding for 2-parts.
Our $10,000.00 Goal Will Help Cover:
- Cash Award to 40 underprivileged persons or organisations with a focus on such people. View nominations and summary here (Nigeria)
- Organise a Career Conference for 400 students (Ogun State, Nigeria)
- Feeding, Writing Materials Branded T-Shirts and Equipment for the Career Conference
- 1 Airline ticket to honour speaking enaggements, one of which is at a charity function during which shoes will be given to children that go to school barefooted. The shoes cover their soles but their souls must be inspired so they can walk tall
- Transport support to facilitaors and volunteers
Since we kicked off the ACE 4.0 Project on November 27 in New Jersey-USA, donations have trickled in, nominations for the cash award poured in and the principal of my high school approved the conference leading me to believe that I can have the best birthday ever as we record a landmark success by pulling our strength and resources together. So I am asking you to § Donate and § Publicise.
If you would like to do a fundraiser for us in your school, I may be able to come in and speak! Let's discuss.
Below was culled from one of the nomination forms:
IFEANYI OTISI is a physically challenged man in need of provisions [groceries], wheel chair, crutches and textbooks but he overlooked all that and said, "I can do something with my hands and I want to learn how to operate the computer and be a graphic expert".
You and I can make it happen for him and many others. This would be a priceless birthday gift which will flow through you to enrich, impact and empower the lives of hundreds; the ripple effect will be truly remarkable.
Thank you and God bless you.
