We wanted to do something fun, yet beneficial, for the True Blood Season 5 premiere, so we put our heads together (trust me…it helps) and came up with a little friendly competition we’re calling FANGS FOR A FUTURE! Let us tell you a little bit about the charity first…
We’re raising money for the fight against childhood malnutrition.
Recognized as a leader in the fight against malnutrition, Action Against Hunger | ACF International saves the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger. With 30 years of expertise in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity, ACF runs life-saving programs in some 40 countries benefiting five million people each year. – Read More -
For the first time in history, the number of hungry people in the world has passed the 1 billion mark. One in six people go to bed desperately hungry every night. And last year, an estimated 5 million young children died from complications from acute malnutrition.
These figures are frightening and sad! We’re hoping with a little assistance from us, we can help to make a difference by not only raising funds as a team, but by spreading the Action Against Hunger link so continued support for this cause will be an on-going possibility. We’re all about the innocent teacup humans and they need our help!
Through research we’ve been inspired to take our own action. With Alexander’s blessing and support, we’re offering this fund-raising endeavor to Alexander Skarsgard’s fans as our True Blood 5 Seasonal Charity Event.
We have a fun competition planned with prizes for those who truly step up and aid Team Skarsgard in making even a little impact toward the goal of ending hunger for starving children and families around the world!
We’re asking fans to do whatever they can to raise money while the season airs. Be it rummage sales, bake sales, marathon sponsorships or holding your own True Blood themed parties weekly…the possibilities are limitless.
A “TEAM” can, and will most likely be, an individual striving for the first place prize. Asking friends, family, co-workers, your mailman for a donation to your cause…all you need to do then is to spread the link and the DONATE button will be right at good ol’Aunt Enda’s fingertips! Your total will tally up each time a donation is made to the TEAM page you create. That way it’s easy for you to keep track and other teams can see where they are in the standings against you and you against them!
We want to promote the competition here to make it a fun event for everyone but we also wanted to make it possible for ALL our donors to win a prize.
First place will only go to the highest earning TEAM! Each TEAM’s goal should be to raise at least $500 dollars for the cause.
Second and third place prizes will be available NOT ONLY to TEAM PLAYERS but also to the highest Donors.
