PREMIERE NETWORKS’ THE BOBBY BONES SHOW has launched a new public service campaign to benefit hunger relief in HAITI. BOBBY BONES and co-host AMY are joining with the non-profit group TEEMHAITI and international relief organization NUMANA to create “30 ABES.”
On SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th, volunteers will gather at the NASHVILLE MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM with a goal of packaging 500,000 meals to send to the MAISON DES ENFANTS DE DIEU orphanage in PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI. As an extra incentive, the volunteers will be looking to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for packaging meals in one-hour. The current record stands at 479,034, by NUMANA VOLUNTEER KANSAS and the ROTARY CLUB OF WICHITA, set earlier this year.
“It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the problems in the world and our desire to do something that makes a difference,” said AMY. “What’s great about 30 ABES is that it gives us all a place to start. The people receiving this food at the orphanage are very special to me, and knowing that they will be well fed, and even have plenty to share with their neighbors, warms my heart. We can make a difference together and I'm thankful to everyone who supports 30 ABES and this worthy cause in any way they can.”
