Greetings from Kazakhstan

Teen Challenge juvenile program Kazakhstan
The Weissensee sponsoring event for the benefit of the Teen Challenge juvenile home in Kazakhstan is in full swing, and how!

We have already received so many pledges and heartwarming comments, it's kind of overwhelming. More than 2700 euro has been pledged if our team finishes the grueling 200 km ice skating race on the Weissensee, next week (January 26th).

Cooking corner in need of shelves and storage space
Much more has been promised if they brake personal records :) (We will keep this amount a secret until the big day). There were a few nice articles about the Traveling Light ice skating team in our local news papers.

Current cooking space
The entire proceeds of this sponsoring event will go to the Teen Challenge juvenile home in Almate and it will be used to build and install a kitchen. The cooking now happens in a space with barely any facilities.  The roof leaks, there is no refrigerator or storage space and the windows and doors close badly. There really is a big need for a serious renovation.

The staff and the guys at the home are very happy with the attention they are getting. They still can not believe that there are people in the Netherlands who will do their very best to help them.

You have a little less than a week left to sponsor the skaters as a team or individually, and well as follows:
  • pledge a certain amount for finishing the race
  • pledge a certain amount per kilometer accomplished
  •  pledge a certain amount no matter what the result will be
  •  pledge a certain amount for breaking personal records
  • with whatever idea you have! We just LOVE to hear from you!
