Kids Caring 4 Kids

Yes, I will admit to watching Oprah from time to time. Today's episode was on giving. Bill Clinton and Andre Agassi were just two of the guests. The shining star of the hour was Kendall Ciesemier. After viewing an Oprah Winfrey special in the winter of 2004, Kendall Ciesemier decided that she had to do something to help the 12 million AIDS orphans of Africa. She began by adopting a child through World Vision with her own annual contribution of $360. In June 2004, as Kendall faced an upcoming liver transplant, she organized her effort, "Kids Caring 4 Kids", asking friends and family to send donations instead of flowers or gifts. Kendall initially adopted a project through World Vision and began accepting on-line donations. Her story is truly an inspiration.
