My 484-mile walk is not about me!

It is about "US" saving one child's life in Kenya!

 

 

My life has been filled with doing the impossible! Now is your chance to say the same thing.  My name is Jim Kaszynski, and I am looking for dreamers; I am good at that. I am 68 and retired, from the US and live in Thailand, doing volunteer work. I have spent a life time of helping others, which have brought me rewards way beyond any paycheck I have ever received.  
 
I know my 484-mile walk the historic "CAMINO de SANTIAGO" with no food will be a challenge, but nothing compared to the task they have ahead of them in Kenya! My walk will force me to ask others for food to continue my quest. This will be very difficult for me; a part of me would rather walk hungry. So, I will ask people, “WILL YOU HELP ME?” In turn I ask you…will you please HELP ME, to save one child’s life? Each step I do not take, could take away our primary goal of giving “HOPE!”  
 
My heart is dedicated to this project of saving “ONE” child’s life in Kenya. These kids (until now) had no chance at life; we will make that difference! Now I’m not just talking about money, there is so much more we want, of course money can help fill the needs we have at “OUR HOME KENYA” Our mission is first to LOVE the kids, provide them with clean water, healthy food, a roof over their head, health care and a good education.  

 
 
Each person who helps with this impossible mission will receive from me…a “BIG” hug!   Your support may include, helping with some on-line work or even coming to Kenya and getting your hands dirty working in the garden plus of course passing out your love and compassion to the kids, oh yes; the volunteers need your support also.

 
For you who want to help out financially and make a gift of $100 or more, your name will be proudly displayed on a plaque at the entrance of the orphanage under the heading…”I HELPED TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE!” Plus you will be able to communicate with the children to see how you played a part in their changing lifes.   
 
Besides the basic essentials, we need books, desk, clothing, a computer for every child and someday our own building. At this point, we only have seven children. Nevertheless, we have many more who are on the waiting list and are still searching for their dream to come true! 
 
I have run many successful campaigns in the past but none as important as this; please help, “YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!”

 

Remember by passing on this message to two friends is the beginning of you becoming a “PART OF…doing the impossible!”

Love & More....Jim
