A Hero For Kids

01:00 pm


We are not really having an event but trying to get a program started and could use help getting the word out. I put down in the URL link tab the Go Fund Me site. We are trying to get a charity event going that will allow us to buy a replica Ironman suit to visit kids. The BEST part about this is that we will be filming each visit to show to everyone where their money went to. We have done videos before for charity but we need help getting the word out for this one. We have reached about 5% of our goal and have had over 50 shares on Facebook. If we could get any help that would be great, also this would be a great way for people to reach out to us to visit a child who might be in need of something like this.
