Los Angeles, April 03, 2013, 11:30 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Skip1.org (www.skip1.org), the non-profit organization dedicated to promoting "Skip Something and Feed a Child," will host a private "green-carpet" gala evening and awards ceremony on April 6th at 6 p.m. on "The Lot" in Hollywood (formerly Warner Studios) to honor Skip1.org's extraordinary supporters (friends, families and volunteers) and raise funds for their newest project, the construction of a new kitchen in Ntunga, Rwanda.
Skip1.org was founded by Shelene Bryan and established on the pretense that small amounts of money can make a HUGE difference to hungry and thirsty children living well below the poverty line, especially in countries like Haiti, Uganda, Peru and Thailand. Skip1.org seeks to encourage people to simply "skip & donate" for one day a coffee, a pack of gum, a magazine, a car wash, a haircut or a manicure. Anything! Skip1.org strives to bring food and water to children and families in need around the world.
Hosted by Shelene Bryan along with celebrity guests which include Kym Douglas (The Ellen DeGeneres Show), Ryan Newman (See Dad Run, Zeke and Luther), Jimmy Pinchack (Ender's Game, Men of A Certain Age), Ali Landry (Runaway Hearts, Criminal Minds) and best-selling author, Karen Kingsbury ("Chance," "The Bridge"), popular X-Factor star Drew Ryniewicz ("Drew") among others, the evenings events will be highlighted by an awards ceremony, recognizing some of Skip1's devoted "skippers" and volunteers, followed by a very special introduction to a very special guest.
In addition, the evening, an actual "skip dinner & donate" event, will raise funds for Skip1.org's next crucial project, building a kitchen in Ntunga, a small village located in Rwanda. Currently maintained by two women who use outdated appliances in a makeshift kitchen to cook one meal a day for 50 children, the new built kitchen and dining room will be enhanced with all new appliances, pots, pans, plates & dishes and utensils, and food to offer these children with the one meal a day (known as "Break Tea" tea and bread, short cake or an egg) they so desperately need.
