We would like to invite you to participate in the 1st annual “National MINIs For Kids Weekend” on October 3-4, 2009. Each year, the 1st weekend of October will be the “National MINIs For Kids Weekend”. This event is designed to raise funds for the support of critically ill children and their families. This year’s charity is the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House (LLRMH). The LLRMH provides a place for families to go for lodging, meals, comfort and support while their child is going through medical treatment at local hospitals.!These services are provided for a nominal fee or free of charge. LLRMH offers these services so each family can focus all of their attention on the needs of and care for their child.
Unfortunately for a critically ill child, LLRMH may be the last place the child calls home. However, this home can also be the very home a child and their family remembers as a contributing factor to saving their life. Since 1996, LLRMH has housed 10,000 families from all over the world.
Many of the children at LLRMH use the world renown Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital for treatment.
Who is behind “MINIs For Kids”? Our group is comprised of members from various MINI clubs with a heart for children and a cause greater than ourselves. These little cars, as many call them, are a perfect fit with kids. By combining our passion for MiINIs and children, we enjoy and love at the same time. After all, our kids are our future.
We understand many of you may not be able to attend the actual event in Redlands, we would like to invite your Club and/or friends to have a MINI run of your own on the weekend of Oct 3-4, 2009 and raise money for the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House. At the end of the event weekend, please submit your club’s contribution via paypal or mail a check to LLRMH. 100% of all the proceeds go directly to LLRMH.
With your help, the National MINI Community Commitee can chose a children’s charity to support annually. We will ask you to submit charities of you choice that fit the criteria of “MINIs For Kids”. From this list we will choose one charity to support on the “National MINIs For Kids” weekend . Imagine what we can do for childrens charities one dollar at a time, through the love of a MINI. Make a difference in a child’s life and at the same time do it through our National connection with MINIs and Twisties.
Go to minisforkids.org to see what is going on at this year’s event. Choose MINIs For Kids as your charity of choice for October 2009. We thank you in advance for all your contributions and hope you too will enjoy the weekend as much as those who attend the event.
Always be safe, stay in the lines, and have lots of fun.
