Krystel has chosen to be a charitable event planner by donating 10% of profits to children in Malawi and other in-need countries through the non-profit, Children of the Nations. Children of the Nations was founded in 2005 by Chris and Debbie Clark. The non-profit works in the USA, Dominican Republic, Sierra Leone, Malawi, Uganda and most recently in Haiti to provide care for orphaned and destitute children. Children of the Nations, through funding primarily from child sponsorship and individual donations, operates homes, schools, farms, skill centers, clinics, and village feeding centers in an effort to provide quality care for children.
