With help these children have the opportunity to lead an active and fulfilling life. Hearts4Kids needs $85,000 to travel to Fiji in September to operate on 15 children over a 5 day period. All of the funds raised will be used specifically to operate and care for the children in Fiji. Priority will be given to purchase equipment, disposables and drugs and the balance of funds will be used to pay for economy travel and house the medical team.

Movie Synopsis:
Meet Nancy (Lake Bell): 34, single, hungover, and exhausted by her well-meaning but clueless friends’ continual matchmaking. 10 times bitten, 100 times shy, after an especially disastrous set-up at her friends’ engagement party, Nancy is basically done with dating. She’s reached the end of her rope, and is more than happy to hole up, seal up, and resign herself to a life alone. That is until Jack (Simon Pegg) mistakes Nancy for his blind date under the clock at Waterloo Station, and she does the unthinkable and just… goes with it. Because what if pretending to be someone else finally makes her man up, and become her painfully honest, awesomely unconventional, and slightly unstable true self? Best just to let the evening unfold, roll with the consequences, and see if one unpredictable, complicated, rather unique night can bring these two messy souls together. MAN UP is an honest, heartwarming screwball of a rom-com. A film about putting yourself out there, taking chances, and keeping a hold on that ever-diminishing glimmer of hope, no matter the shit life throws at you.
