UKF-thanksWe, the trustees of United for Kids Foundation hereby express our sincere gratitude to you for your role in making our 2nd annual Passion Ball a great success. Your attendance, donation, support and sponsorship meant the world to us. You told our beneficiaries, particularly those who attended the event that they are not forgotten and that there is indeed hope of a better tomorrow. We raised N10.1 Million Naira from tickets and auctions, and thanks to our amazing sponsors we only spent N2.6 Million Naira to execute an event of that size, meaning that we have N7.4 Million to do the work you love and support. Our sincere appreciation goes to our guests, non-attendee sponsors and the following sponsors:

Gifts/Raffle: This was one of the biggest highlights of the evening courtesy of PZ/Mamador (facilitated by Capitas) and Clear Essence. Not only did guests go home with spa items and Mamador vegetable oil, 2 lucky winners also won a fabulous spa day at the magnificent Clear Essence Spa and Resort, and a year‘s supply of Mamador vegetable oil!
We thank you for a very beautiful and successful evening. In the next 6 months – we plan to grow our library programs by buying more books, creating more interactive programs and bringing in people like you in to the libraries so that you can help us buttress the point that there is a much bigger life to reach for beyond these kids’ current circumstances. We will also include the Little Saints Orphanage in our Second Saturdays Movie/Book Club program and begin planning for the 2014 Back to School program so that we can increase our numbers from 10,000 to 15,000 children. All these will be in addition to our existing programs.
