1 Make a Donation
On this celebration of a half century of living, I would like to give a bit of life and comfort to Baby Abraham and the other Babies at Anna Vitiello Orphanage just outside Guatemala City. This orphanage cares for babies living with hiv and other illnesses. The baby nannies give daily care to these little sweeties.
I met little Abraham (seen pictured) in 2012 while visiting his orphanage. Due to my own carelessness, I contracted Hepatitis A from him. I’m totally recovered from the illness, but Abraham will live with the affects of the illness for his entire life.
Our shared illness has bonded me to the little guy, and I am proud to support him and his orphanage-mates.
The monies donated will provide for loving hands through Nannies to give him care, support, and comfort so that he and the others at Anna Vitello can live as full lives as possible.
I’m hoping to raise $5,000 to support the Nanny efforts.
You are welcome to contribute any amount, I encourage you to go with the 50 theme and contribute $50 or some easy derivative of 50, like $5, $25, or double it and contribute $100 or $500.
In order to make it fun (and to encourage you to give higher amounts) I’m offering these incentives:
- Donate $50 and get a PENTDOUGCOST bandana.
- Donate $100 and receive a PENTDOUGCOST t-shirt (while supplies last).
And, with every donation of $50 you can add a “do this” command at the mile of your choice. I.e.: at mile 7 “ask a passerby for a dance”; at mile 12 “jump in the lake”; at mile 36 “do a somersault”; or something of your choice. I will post your request and my completion of it on social media, so be thoughtful about what you choose as people will know that it was you who made me do it.
