Crazy Love Tour

The Crazy Love Tour was a seven-day "serve-a-thon" to provide meals and medical supplies to the poor. In one week, 23 Tour participants travelled throughout California, conducting large-scale service projects that would meet the needs of the poor. At the same time, we were able to raise several thousand dollars to fight extreme poverty in sub-Saharan Africa.

Day 1: Joined Ag Against Hunger in Salinas, harvesting more than 3.5 tons of celery to be distributed among CA food banks.

Day 2: Joined Giving Children Hope in Los Angeles, serving in various ways from sorting clothing for the less fortunate to helping renovate the organization's facilities and preparing a mobile medical clinic for its debut in Los Angeles' RAM event at the Forum.

Day 3: Joined Children's Hunger Fund, bagging 3 tons of beans and wrapping 615 grooming kits for compassion ministries in developing nations.

Day 4: Joined Fresno's Community Food Bank, distributing drought relief emergency food to 2,363 people in Huron, CA.

Day 5: Prepared and distributed a BBQ meal to 625 people in Mendota, a small town in Fresno Co. where the unemployment rate recently hit 44%.

Day 6: Conducted the "Food 4others Drive" to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank in San Jose, collecting 13,342 pounds of food in one day.

Day 7: Sorted and filled 20 boxes of medical supplies at MedShare Intl. for distribution to free clinics in CA & hospitals in developing nations.

Over the week: A group of 23 lives were changed by living 4 others!

Participants also raised funds through sponsorships to fight extreme poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. These funds were able to provide:

8 small business loans for entrepreneurial people in extreme poverty to start businesses in Ghana and Kenya through OptINnow.

3 community well repairs in Zambia through a partnership with African Water Project and Seeds of Hope International Partnerships.

10 Ethiopian children were cured of clubfoot through CURE International.

2,000 lbs. of beans, 2 pallets of pasta, 1,000 pairs of new shoes, and 1 bicycle were donated to Children's Hunger Fund.
