Audrey Allen CEO celebrates with orphanage
Tosin Allen celebrated her birthday at an orphanage in Karu, Abuja on the 21st of August 2012. She had over 40 Abuja based musicians and comedians accompany her to the event. It was great fun watching the children play on bouncing castles and other fun toys she set up for them. There were about 5 cartoon characters all dressed up in colourful costumes. It was really like bringing Disney world to the children. Everyone had plenty cotton candies, cake, food and drinks to Consume. There were also lots of fun competitions and gifts to go round. when asked why she involved so many celebrities and why she made it so big,she explained that the idea of the foundation is to raise funds strictly through entertainment and she simply just wanted the kids to identify with these people."these Children are super stars themselves"she added pointing at a group of them dancing at one of the competitions."
I wanted them to have a sense of belonging and also experience what average children from average homes experience. it is too cliché to bring gifts to orphanage and just dump them with their care givers,I wanted this experience to be different"she also added. in partnership to that was the "Naija Pikin" initiator Mr kevin Pam(1st Nigerian to win the Big Brother Africa)and his adorable wife Elizabeth. Other celebrities in attendance were Bryan okwara(Former Mr Nigeria cum Nollywood actor),Aanu michael of Good Morning Africa,Romeo fourteen,Chuks the general,fred Bright,C.E.O of Alpha plus magazine,Gully Ryder,Julieta,Igwe,Mekoyo,stainless,Kaycee Kline,Talent 5,sexy Jenny,Tshakes,Teddy king,Papa,U-jay finest,Sgt plus,Njemanze Dorothy,amongst others.
