Operation North Pole
- Kyla Pelletier and Tarrah Stephens led the Christmas card writing campaign which raised over $1000 at Christmas. Each donor sent in a personalized Christmas card to Amanda with a contribution to S4K.
- At the AT4 Convention in the UK, presented by GABIT Events, the fans showed their generous spirit and love for Tapping which translated into more than £16000 for Sanctuary for Kids. Four lucky fans won a raffle to sit down and chat with Tapping over coffee. Others got into the mood of the event by passing a hat around to contribute while Tapping, always good natured and responsive to her fans, agreed to show off her baton twirling skills for the excited crowd. One of AT4’s organizers donated proceeds from the sale of her own book to the organization. And not wanting the wave of generosity to stop, many big-hearted convention-goers even started donating their own treasured memorabilia and autographed items to the auction so more funds could be raised for the foundation.
- Julia Hague of England has written You is for Unique, a collection of women’s reflections meant to give voice to real women’s feelings about their own body image and self-esteem issues. All profits from each book sale goes to S4K. Julia has pledged that Sanctuary for Kids will always benefit from the proceeds of the sale of her book and additionally from her growing speaking and networking engagements with women.
