KK’s Christmas Wish
“No, it’s not about breakdancing, man, its not about rapping. Its being part of a community which makes these kids happy, keeps them away from the street, and from drugs and gangs.”
That’s what I say in this film, and its true. If you want to understand what makes Tiny Toones different, why hundreds of Cambodian kids from the toughest backgrounds come to us for a safe place where they are cared for and get the only education they can, then please watch. And then please think about donating to keep us going in 2018.
I want to give a shout out to everyone who helped us in 2017, on behalf of me, the team and the kids. But as the film shows, raising money is very tough every year. We’re a small crew, just 5 teachers and 6 staff. That means our costs are a fraction of most NGOs, but it also means we can’t pay professional fundraisers. The team has to fight for every cent, and it takes up a lot of time and energy we’d prefer to give to the kids.
We made it in 2017, but only just. My Christmas wish would be for 2018 to be easier, so the team can focus on doing more to improve these kids’ futures, giving them the education they need to leave poverty and the streets behind for good. We need you to do that. Please donate this December. If you don’t have much, but want to sign up for just a few dollars a month, we appreciate that as much as any big cheque (though we’re not saying no to big cheques!).
To learn more about why we need $35,000 and exactly how your money will change these kids’ lives please go here. Americans, don’t forget that donations made before the end of December are tax deductible. If you can’t donate, please share this post or send it to your friends. Happy holidays everyone.
KK, founder, Tiny Toones
