A Message From Armida Steele

For the 3rd year in a row, my company Accurate Background will be partnering with KATW's Onemeal program, by hosting a fundraising event that will raise money to purchase packed meals.

Last year I was fortunate enough to go to South Africa and see exactly how our donations are feeding the Kids Around The World! There were about 200 kids that showed up at an after school event to eat and for about 75% of them, that was their only meal for the day. I was there for two weeks and was able to see the poverty that surrounded them, however despite everything around them they are fun loving playful kids, just like ours who deserve not to starve. I was able to go with one of the missionaries, George to take an 8 year old boy named Chana home. On the way we needed to stop off at the market to get drinks for everyone that was working on the playground build. When we went in the market I told Chana to get whatever he wanted . . . he grabbed a loaf of bread and a banana. When I asked him if he wanted anything else he asked if he could get another banana for his brothers. I said yes for sure and we grabbed a bunch of bananas and several other items for him. We got back in the car and drove for about 2 miles, went on an off road and into some trees and stopped. In front of us was a make shift house where he lived with his dad and two brothers. His mom died of Aids a few months ago and his sister was placed in a home because the father had to go out and find work and could not protect her from the men in the homeless community. I looked at George and said we cannot leave him here . . . he said we have to, this is where he lives. Needless to say, I cried the whole way back to the work-site and it was very hard to sleep that night. There are so many stories of kids that touched my heart on this trip. Unfortunately, we cannot help them all but we can do our share and start with Onemeal at time!

We are trying to earn at least $5,000 dollars, which will pack over $20,000 meals. Each meal contains the vitamins and protein-rich ingredients to help the children fight off malnutrition.

Our donations will be going directly to our meal packing event that will take place in September at Accurate Background HQ in Irvine and shipped out to feed the children. Please help our company feed as many kids as possible! All denominations of donations are welcome . . . this is where the saying "every penny counts" is so true!

$1 feeds 4 children
$5 feeds 20
$25 feeds 100
$50 feeds 200
$100 feeds 400

Thank you in advance!

About This Campaign

For the 3rd year in a row, we'll partner with Kids Around the World to pack meals for hungry children in other parts of the world! This year we will pack meals for children in Nicaragua, who rely on the one nutritious meal they receive each day at one of seven feeding centers in Puerto Cabezas. HELP US PACK LOTS OF MEALS! Each meals costs only 25 CENTS, and provides a child with a protein and vitamin rich meal to help them fight off malnutrition and its harmful effects.
