Starting Now…

So… Today has been an incredible day in Nashville…

Donald Miller, author of ‘Blue Like Jazz’ and ‘A Million Miles in a Thousand Years’ just gave me $10 and has challenged me to “Live A Better Story” and multiple and do as much as I can with that $10 to write a better story & save as many lives as possible over the next 21 days!  Now, I’m not the only one on this “challenge” but I am so passionate about this “Right now” for me and thrilled to have you along the journey!

According to U.S. Census Bureau in November, 2009, there are approximately 13.7 million single parents in the United States today, and those parents are responsible for raising 21.8 million children.  21.8 MILLION CHILDREN.  WOW!!

Many of you already know PART of my story.  In 2005, I was raped and became pregnant and am now a single mom.  But just how difficult the last years have been emotionally, mentally, physically and financially most have no idea.

I want to use my story of unimaginable pain, to help others learn how to edit their story and to come up OUT of their own pain.  One thing we all have in common is that pain doesn’t discriminate, it attacks the rich, poor, healthy, sick, male, female… and all in between.  And while I don’t have it ALL figured out yet, things are sure on the mend, and I now wake up singing!!

I have started with the few people I know that have a home in my personal cell phone and am asking you to also help me get the word out.

After meeting with three mentors today and having all three, none of whom have ever met by the way, but all know “my story” have all said that the last few years of my life and believe me, there are a LOT of things no one outside that “inner 3″ know about… should be put into book form I believe I have a clear direction for the purpose of my “right now.”  AND, I have already been asked in the last hour to speak, at 2 churches & 2 Universities and share “my story.”

I am starting by matching the $10 Donald Miller gave me with $10 of my own and I would be honored if you would match $10 as well.

Several folks already today hand me $10, one gave me a $20 for he and his wife.

21 days is not a lot of time & I’m going to put a page together just for this, but I’m literally driving down the road writing this so I can not waste any time either.

I would appreciate you passing along the word for me as well, and if anyone else will give $10 I am committed to making this BIG and want you on the journey with me!

If you want to mail a check to me for $10 make it out to: 
“Kaci Allen” and in the for line write “21 Day Project” and send to: PO Box 2423 Brentwood TN 37024.

I’ll also set up a paypal link that will allow online contributions as well.

If you have ANY questions, please email me directly at nashvillewriter@live.com

As a special “Thank You” I am going to give everyone who joins me a free download of an amazing song and when I get the logistics worked out, I want you to be apart of my book release.

Thank you for your a contribution of $10, or more if you feel so lead… I want this to be an enormous impact on the children of the U.S. and believe with a little help we can do something BIG!!

And thanks for sharing this with everyone you know!
21 days… starting now…

  1. Kaci,

    I am so proud of you and know that you will do big things! It would take a check forever to get from Iraq to you but let me know on facebook or by email (mzjencolon@hotmail.com) when u get ur paypal set up! I know you will be great! And if u ever need someone to listen or an ear to bounce something off of, I’ll be home in October! 🙂 Muah girl and good luck! ❤

  2. Kaci,

    I am so deeply touched by your story and by what I have heard through friends that have heard you speak. I want to be a part of this and will be happy to match your $10, and double it with a $20. I have never met another young woman that I believe in so much.

    You are changing lives and I want to be a part of what you’re doing!
