One of our favorite aspects of Kazapalooza is Saturday's raffle that gives our families the opportunity to come together as a collective group to give back to the country that helped us build our families.
As planners, we try to spread the donations raised at KP to the various charitable organizations that are making an impact in Kazakhstan. This year we are excited to announce that our designated charity is J127 Ranch in Taraz.
J127 Ranch is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of not only orphans, but to the children of single parents, foster families, as well families of children with disabilities. They accomplish this by providing education, life and social skills, Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapy along with providing a safe environment for children who would otherwise be roaming the streets while their parents are working. They also provide meals to these children, some of which it may be the only meal they have that day.
The planners are drawn to J127 due to their commitment in helping orphans, but also their commitment to helping improve the lives of individuals within the community by empowering families to stay together and helping children to reach their full potential.
J127 Ranch does not currently own the property where the above services are taking place. In order to provide stability and security for the individuals that they serve as well as future growth, purchasing the property is a priority. Therefore the funds raised by our KP families this year will go directly toward the purchase of this property in Taraz.
We are also providing the option to donate directly to J127 at the following link. For every $5 donation you will receive 1 raffle ticket. Save your receipt to show to us at Kazapalooza in exchange for raffle tickets.
