Ten Kids Inc. (#418)
Gip Gibson recounts the trip to Haiti that inspired him to establish Ten Kids Inc., saying that nothing could have prepared him for the extreme poverty he witnessed there. He was overwhelmed by the poor conditions many Haitian children endure, and upon his return, he and his wife decided they could generate the resources to support 10 children.
Holly Brady discusses her decision to join the Gibsons’campaign, explains why she believes Ten Kids Inc. to be a sustainable program and describes the work they do to obtain funds for the children’s care.
Ten Kids can provide for 10 children’s needs—food, water, electricity, clothing, books, schooling, “house parents” and more—for $12,000 per year. They are currently supporting seven children, and they discuss plans to expand the operation.
Gibson and Brady also talk about their vision for the children they support, the importance of community service here and around the world, and how the downturn in the economy has affected their mission.
