40 for 40...

In honor of Will & Mark's 40th Birthdays, we are launching the "$40 for 40 years" CHALLENGE!

Over the 50 days between their birthdays (02.25.08 - 04.14.08), we are asking you to save $40 to donate in their honor.

$40 in the U.S. can get you a week of Starbucks... in Haiti, it is two months' wages (for those that are lucky enough to find work).

$40 can be dinner for two in the U.S... or it can feed a family for four months in Haiti!

Please prayerfully consider skipping your morning coffee even once a week for the next month, or cooking Sunday dinner at home rather than dining out, and donate your extra $40 to the Hands & Feet Project in honor of two who have given so much to make it happen! [Note: You may donate any amount you wish, but we are issuing you a challenge to find that $1/year to honor these men by contributing to that which is most important to them.]

03/25/08 UPDATE:

The total amount raised thus far is $1480. With a goal of $5000 by 04/14, please continue to spread the word!!

04/08/08 UPDATE:

It's been 44 days, which means there are a mere SIX remaining to donate to the 40 for 40 Challenge!! [For more information, please click the above image.]

The total currently stands short of the $5,000 goal, so we've added a little something special!! While the birthday boys don't yet know about their birthdays being so-honored, if the challenge goal is met, EVERY PERSON WHO DONATES (ANY amount) will receive a SPECIAL "THANK YOU" from Mark & Will!!! Donate NOW and guarantee your chance at a personal surprise!!

I hope that many of you have been saving for the past 44 days so that we will be able to meet our goal to benefit the Project's 34 orphans!!

04/17/08 UPDATE:

The "40 for 40" deadline has come and gone, BUT... we are a mere $160 -- FOUR DONATIONS -- SHORT of our goal!! We have extended the deadline by ONE MORE DAY! All donations MUST be in by midnight Thursday. Will you be one of the four who make it possible for all those who have given to receive their special "Thank You"?

Well, I don't drink coffee, but I'm sure I waste plenty. :) I'll see what I can do most definitely.

Even a missionary like me can come up with $40. Come on guys. Make this happen.

Ok guys, so it turns out I didn't have $40 extra bucks after all. That didn't stop me. You see, I'm turning 40 this year too. I asked some special people in my life to give me $$ as an early birthday present and tada...instant donation!!!

Get creative, we can really rock their world. as well as all our little babies in Haiti that we love so much!

you mention haiti in your request for donations but I don't see anything that actually tells me who I am donating to or how the money will be spent. i know it says hands and feet but i don't know what that is or what organization I am giving to.

to tell you the truth, my first impression is that I'm giving money as a birthday present. please provide details for me and for anyone else who is as clueless as i am about this project.

Brian, the Hands and Feet Project is the Orphanage in Haiti that Audio Adrenaline started a few years ago. Your donation isn't exactly a birthday present as you take it....the birthday present is that the fans of Audio Adrenaline donated money to the orphanage so that they can build new buildings, house and feed more children, etc. If you want more information about the orphange (or Children's Village as they call it), go to I hope that helps.
