07/22/2006: An Appeal from the Writers' Room

This is a special supplemental post to tell you about a project from one of the other writers in the Andy Barker, PI writers' room. Josh Bycel, a really sharp and funny writer, is also the founder of a non-profit organization that's setting out to do some really great stuff. I'll let him tell you about it:

"One Kid One World started with bringing a few soccer balls and some pens and paper to
a refugee camp in Darfur, Sudan. It has now blossomed into an organization
dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children around the
globe…one kid, one school, one refugee camp at a time.

OKOW’s first project is a campaign for the Nyamasare Girls School and
Orphanage in the Suba District of Kenya.

We are committed to raising a minimum of $20,000 to benefit the girls who
attend…most of whom have lost at least one of their parents to AIDS.
Nyamasare is the only girl’s school in Suba. It is an amazing refuge for
young women in a place where close to 70% of the population lives below the
poverty line, less than 10% of girls are able to attend secondary school and
the HIV/AIDS infection rate currently stands at 41% - the highest rate in
Kenya and one of the highest rates in East Africa.

The school desperately needs YOUR help. Your donation will allow 75 girls
to attend school for a year as well as buy them books, school supplies and
uniforms. In addition, the money will help build an athletic field and
dormitory and buy generators to power the school.

Please visit our new website at onekidoneoworld.org for
more information on:

1. How to DONATE or get involved.
2. The Nyamasare School and the Suba district of Kenya.

OKOW is committed to making sure that %100 of your donation goes to the
school. Not many other organizations can make that promise."
