Festival 2011 - "MOOving
Milk to Places of Need"
Be prepared to milk your
adventure for all its worth as we raise funds to support MCC's
milk programs! Targeted programs are Jordan's
Milk Distribution Program and Kenya's
Goats for Milk Program. Our goal is to raise $7,150 which will
equal 100,100 cups of milk! How many cups will you sponsor while
you have fun?
Putting it into perspective:
Every dime raised = one cup of
milk created through powdered milk.
Every dollar raised = one pound skim milk.
$35 buys a female goat for the milk project in Kenya.
$7,000 = 140 50-pound bags of dry
milk = 98,000 cups of milk
If we raise $7,150 that will equal 100,100 cups of milk!
Look at the impact we can have!!

costs are affecting the goat project in Jordan.
