Mighty Oaks Third Grade Orange For Team ZAT 2015

About Team ZAT 2015

Team ZAT is a group of kids and adults passionate about serving God and His people. This October we will be running various races in the Kansas City Marathon in order to raise money and awareness for orphans and vulnerable children within the communities of Ziway and Adami Tulu, Ethiopia (Ziway + Adami Tulu = ZAT). Your donation will go towards the Ethiopia child sponsorship program, providing education, medical care, two meals per day, love and HOPE to children enrolled in the Ziway/Adami Tulu schools. Not only will kids be physically cared for, but they will be lovingly taught of their great worth in God's eyes. Help us feed families spiritually through the message of hope and empowerment, aiming to keep families together in Ethiopia. 

** Rest assured knowing that 100% of your tax deductible donation goes directly to work in Ethiopia

*** THIS JUST IN ***
We just had an anonymous donor step up and say they were so excited by all those Running for Purpose, that they wanted to MATCH every single donation given (up to this point) and until the end of October.  Folks, that means your $10 donation instantly turns to $20, $50 turns to $100 and so on (up to a total of $20,000).  Help spread this good news and let's see how many kids we can support. ***

Mighty Oaks Third Grade Orange Details

Abenazer is 9 years-old and in second grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.  He enjoys playing soccer.  His favorite subject is science and he wants to be a doctor when he grows up. He lives with his mother and sister. Many families in this region of Ethiopia are living in extreme poverty and many children are orphaned due to death and disease.  Without a quality education children have little to no hope of breaking the cycle of gripping poverty. At Lifesong Ethiopia, our hope is to not only provide education and food, but also share the love of Christ with students as we guide them into a hopeful future.

 We are the 3rd Grade Orange Team at Mighty Oaks Enrichment Center and we are working together as a class to help ensure that Abenazer and others like him can continue to go to school, get fed and hear about God's love.  Our goal is $228, the cost to sponsor Abenazer for an entire year.  One way we are doing that is by running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon on October 17th.  Will you help us by making a donation?  No amount is too small.
