For Immediate Release
February 10, 2014
Contact: Shelley Wolfe
KMVT 15 is thrilled to launch a number of ways you can assist us in raising funds. KMVT 15 uses funds raised to keep our award winning educational programs running and it also allows us to provide low cost educational media workshops. Here are some new and exciting ways you can participate.
Give the Gift of Coffee:
If you already drink coffee, why not support two good causes at the same time? Every time you buy Keipos, Inc. coffee through KMVT 15, 50% of the proceeds will go towards providing clean drinking water and electricity to the people of Santa Marta, Nicaragua. Currently, most inhabitants walk an average of half a mile on steep terrain to fill their buckets with water unsafe for drinking. The other 50% will help fund KMVT 15’s educational workshops and camps for youth and adults.
Are you an Amazon Shopper? Here is an easy way to support KMVT 15
