Michael Obacha Launches School Supply Drive, Donate during Mar 5, 7 …
March 2, 2015 - School Supplies
In 2014, Appalachian State University men’s basketball youth Michael Obacha (Edo State, Nigeria/High Point Christian Academy) orderly a shoe expostulate that lifted over 700 pairs of boots to send to bankrupt children in his home nation of Nigeria.
Through an implausible partnership with A2S-Access to Success, Michael was means to broach a boots this past summer and perform his dream of bringing smiles to a faces of children median around a world.
While Michael trafficked by Nigeria to palm out shoes, he also beheld another need that was not being met for many of a children. In a counry where 80 percent of a race lives on reduction than $2 a day, Michael beheld that many children lacked simple propagandize supplies.
After saying that need, Michael is vehement to announce a start of a new beginning to send propagandize reserve to a children of Nigeria. For a tiny donation, we can send a child a Success Pack, that will yield them with simple propagandize reserve for one year (backpack, paper, pens and pencils, etc.).
While those reserve might seem to be simple and second-nature to children in a United States, they are in brief supply for a children of Nigeria. Michael’s idea is to supply 100 children with a Success Pack, that contains propagandize reserve for a year. We also wish to send 100 pairs of boots to Nigeria to yield boots for a children.
The cost to yield one Success Pack to a child is $40 and a cost to boat a span of boots is roughly $5 per span – this is where we need YOUR help! By donating to a cause, we can assistance us strech a idea of $5,000 ($4,000 for Success Packs and $1,000 for shoes) to supply 100 children with a much-needed Success Pack and a span of shoes!
Thanks to your munificence final year during a Michael Obacha Shoe Drive, we still have many, many pairs of boots left! You can assistance us get those boots to Nigeria by assisting us cover a shipping cost during $5 a pair.
On March 5 and 7, Appalachian State University men’s basketball will horde “No. 2 Night” – fans are speedy to make a concession during a diversion by visiting www.igfn.us/vf/Obacha on their mobile device, or move No. 2 pencils and other propagandize reserve to assist a children of Nigeria.
While we will gladly accept donations of propagandize supplies, we strongly inspire people to present monetarily to a cause. Monetary donations will give us some-more coherence as it allows us to squeeze propagandize reserve directly in Nigeria and bypass a cost of shipping them overseas, that can be quite expensive.
Your donations can make a outrageous disproportion in a lives of children median around a world. Help us make a disproportion currently in a lives of immature people and assistance us strech a altogether idea of $5,000. Michael, Access to Success and a children in Nigeria are grateful for your support!
