GHFP Indianapolis Mudathlon

Picture this: Three miles of mud, 40 obstacles, and a cold beer at the finish line!! 
GHFP is making a charity team to run, walk, or crawl for the orphans this summer in Indianapolis on June 30th!

Please consider joining our team, spreading the word, or sponsoring one of our mudathletes.

Make sure you click "joining a team" and then find "Give Hope, Fight Poverty" in the list. Try to pick a start time that is close to 8:30a so we can all play around in the mud together. Email me when you sign up: so I can add you to our website as a mudathlete.

You can sponsor via PayPal through our website from the link above, or you can mail a check made out to Give Hope Fight Poverty to 39 S Logan Street Denver CO 80209 with your favorite mudathlete's name on the memoline.

Are you in? Are any of your friends? Our goal is to have a team of 30 so we can have a GIVE HOPE FIGHT POVERTY tent to celebrate our new found status as Mudathletes - plus it means extra free beer for the team!

We need your help! Invite everyone you know! JOIN US AND MUCKING RUN FOR OUR KIDDOS!!

April Parties for a Purpose

April was a busy month! 
* GHFP Service-learning participant Amber (pictured with Kait & Annie above) had a Painting for a Purpose party at the Russiaville Methodist Church.  Friends, family, and her Pastor each painted two masterpieces - one for themselves and a smaller one for our orphans that she will deliver to the kids in July.  It was a great afternoon and she ended up raising over $500!

* Purdue's War on Hunger club threw a Trivia Night fundraiser for us.  It was a lot of fun! There were questions about Purdue, Swaziland, Pop culture, and History and there were amazing prize giveaways donated by local businesses! Huge thanks to Sandy, Lauren, and Maysoon for all of their hard work!

* The July 2012 Service-Learning participants had a suitcase packing party where we stuffed 50lbs of donations into each of our suitcases.  These included toothbrushes, toothpaste, books, art materials, toys, clothes, hygeine items, medical supplies, and 144 meals donated by Angie Mollenkopf, of Kids against Hunger.

* Hope Neely hosted a Party for a Purpose where Jennifer Duncan donated a percentage of her Premier Jewelry sales to the Computer and English Literacy lab at eLangeni Secondary School.  To host a Premier Jewelry party of your own, contact Jenn:
