“$40k In 40 Days” — Heartfelt Holiday Campaign To Keep Someone Cares Soup Kitchen Open To Those Less Fortunate

December 08, 2009

In 2008, Donaldson successfully spearheaded a campaign to raise $30,000 in 30 days for the soup kitchen’s holiday programs—and this year was determined to step up the donation amount with his “$40K in 40 Days” initiative. The money raised will go toward helping the soup kitchen give 400 backpacks to the homeless; 800 backpacks filled with holiday gifts to children; and a holiday dinner serving up to 1,200 individuals. The remaining funds will go toward the soup kitchen’s ongoing programs, including its tutoring center for at-risk kids.

To play your part in helping the underprivileged in Orange County, visit www.someonecares40kin40days.com where you can learn more about Donaldson’s campaign or make a donation via PayPal. For those who want to see their money double, donations will be matched until Dec. 15; but contributions can be made until Dec. 20. A “Happy Hour for the Holidays” fundraising event also will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2009, at Woody’s Wharf in Newport Beach, and will feature appetizers, DJ Johnny Paris and more than 40 silent auction items.
