The Fin K Project In His Own Words & Pictures: The Mother’s Day Soup Kitchen/Celebration Lunch

Hello World,
Fin K here to talk and show you about a wonderful brunch soup kitchen I hosted on Sunday, May 10th, MOTHERS’ DAY at the San Pedro Lions Den.

Can I just say that the concept was awesome – it was as if a soup kitchen met a San Pedro Quince Anos celebration.  Simple yet lovely.

After a month of preparing and organizing it was a HUGE SUCCESS. We had so many Moms, kids, drinks, food, music and FIN KARDASHIAN. There has certainly never been a Mothers Day event like this EVER on the island. Open to the public where they can come and enjoy, relax, make new friends and mostly to feel loved.

Making a event like this alone is a very challenging task – the shopping, walking, coordinating donations, going to town – it gets a little exhausting. Thanks to the restaurants that decided to help prep food or else it would have been a disaster.
It took about a month to get everything together.

At the end of the event, we weren’t done yet.   There were still gifts left and FOOD – lots of food and CAKE…Jean and Elizabeth decided to wrap all the food and Brittney offered us her golf cart and off we went to the San Mateo neighborhood.

My heart melts when we approached moms sitting on their porch as I walked to them and I said I have a gift for you-  the look in their eyes was as if I was playing a prank.

Yet at the same moment all I wanted to do was to wish them a Happy Mother’s Day and give them a little treat that comes from the heart. The best reward we got was the simply the best-  a GOD BLESS you, what else can we all want more than a blessing from mothers on their day.

Many of us on this Island think we have it all.  No we don’t we have it all until we give our all to others.

Today I sit here typing this blog the feeling of satisfaction is surreal but my heart is happy.  I just want to thank everyone that contributed…whether it was $5.00 or your time.   It means a lot to me and know it means even more to the ladies who attended the lunch.

Thank you – with events like this we can make a better community for all of us.
