PB100375

 & the great volunteers of kayak power!

 

All the good stuff

SO here’s the deal,

we (ahem..) decided to get a kayak and fill it with food

 

IMAG1008

We used the last 4 months of the S4 along with our

kick#$$ social media to beg for food to be donated for

Christmas meals…….

 

We chose a local charity because we wanted to impact

our little corner of the world to help our people…….
