Call To Action
eCampaign -- Southern Africa
School is starting and we can make a monumental change this year!
With one, 100% tax
deductible donation you can
empower women and
families and promote
conservation of the
environment by providing
fuel-efficient, low carbon
emission cook-stoves for
households in southern
Each stove is $340 and
enables one child to go to
school through grades 1-12. We
are committed to sponsoring
5000 cooking systems to the
urban poor. Please consider
sponsoring as a family, as a
team, or as a group. We would
like schools to encourage each
of their classrooms to sponsor
a cook-stove and a child's
The cooking systems you provide
to these families are comprised of
a highly-efficient stainless steel
cook-stove, fry pan, cooking pot,
toughened glass lids and a thermo
pot. This system heats food or
water with an 80% reduction in fuel
and boasts a very low smoke
emission as compared to
traditional charcoal stoves.
In Africa, the urban poor must pay a large amount of their income on fuel.
These cook-stoves save much of that expense with the added benefit of
reduced pollution and deforestation. Ordinarily, a great amount of wood is
needed to produce charcoal. These new cook-stoves require only a small
amount of twigs, which can be gathered without cutting down trees. This
program will encourage women to use these savings to send their child to
school, and engage in micro enterprise opportunities. They can generate
more income to feed their families and escape the cycle of poverty.
We invite you to join Reaching Hearts for Kids, ECHO Aid
Australia, and Airline Ambassadors in supporting the
UN's Millennium Development Goals (MDG's) for fostering self-reliance and independence in countries needing
long-term economic solutions to poverty.

Brad King and Extreme Response!
Home and playground construction, games
and activities with children and the elderly,
and aid and supplies delivered were just a few
of the accomplishments of a 24 member trip
to Ecuador in August.
A family that makes their living by pulling
recyclables out of the garbage at the
Zambiza dump in Quito has a new home
now. "Team 1", in the mission group, was
able to complete their new house which
includes their first stove and oven. Before,
"Maria" cooked over an open fire.
Now, they have their first shower (with tile) their
first hot water for the shower and the kitchen
sink. In addition, the team purchased furnishings
for the entire house -- couches, chairs, tables,
beds, and dressers. They brought bed linens and
clothes to fit each family member as well as their
extended family members.
Brad continued to report:
The activities for Team 2, for the week of
Aug. 4 to Aug. 11, were as follows:
1.) Day Care at Zambiza Dump - 30 children plus 12
young men from Casa Gabriel made a field trip to the
Zoo along with the teachers from the Day Care. For
most of the 30 children, and all of the 12 young men,
this was their first Zoo experience. Children and their families were given a total of 200 gifts such as toys, socks, etc.
2) Hogar de Ancianos - Senior Center - 48 residents
and the team played games and gave the residents
gifts of personal hygiene and clothing. The team
spent time with these folks and loved them!
3) Casa Gabriel - 12 residents age 15 to 20 years
old. This is a home for former"street boys". Our team
helped them paint their rooms in their house. Our team
connected so well with these young men that they also
came out to help build the house and hold a
4) Nuevos Amigos - Child Development Community
Center. Held a carnival for about 150 children
complete with games and prizes - lots of prizes.
Most of the team returned to Omaha from Quito on August 11, tired, but with the knowledge of a job well done.
Bravo to Brad King and his Team of 24!
