{Day 80}


YIKES!!! 20 days left?!?!?!?  Think of all the children we have helped! We have provided homes for at least 20 children. 😀  Can we help provide them with an education too?  Would you be willing to take a dare?  Give up your favorite beverage (coffee, tea, pop/soda/whatever you call it) for a week and then give that money to a child to feed them for several months?  Approximately 5 dollars feeds an orphan for a month.  Hello 90 meals for $5???  You’re right in thinking we may not be able to change the world but we can change a life.  Or several.  Or many.  Depending on how much money we raise in the next 20 days.  And who knows the power of one changed life?  The possibilities and opportunities are endless.  The child we feed may be a future president, TOMS founder, or Jane Austen.  Kinda makes my mind swirl when
I think of it like that!

P.S.  I realize I look 13 in this picture…

    Just stumbled across your project yesterday…I’ve been a big fan of Sheena and U.P. since the beginning, so it’s fantastic to see you follow in her footsteps! Best of luck in the last few weeks!
