Countdown to the African Adventure Begins!

Countdown to the African Adventure Begins!

This upcoming trip to Ethiopia has everyone in our group is getting really excited!

The Awassa Children’s Project fundraiser was a huge success, and it was there they aired the ACP commercial for the first time.

Dr. Jay Gordon is collecting multiple medications to bring to the children and families of Awassa, Ethiopia. Thanks for Terry (DSA, DSA Pays It Forward) and his generosity,  we will be able to ship the vaccines and medications safely to Ethiopia.

Paul, and his beautiful girlfriend Serra, spoke to Hybrid Apparel  about donating clothes to the Awassa Children’s Center. We were overwhelmed by their generosity. Hybrid donated thousands of t-shirts to the children and adults of Awassa.

After our car maxed out with boxes we needed to use another truck to haul the rest.

Also, I wanted to share this news coverage of another group helping out the Awassa Children’s Project. They are not related to my group, but I love their fun spirit and the creative way they are raising money for the kids in Awassa, Ethiopia.  (Team Shoebaru? Who wouldn’t want to hang out with these people?)

Definitely worth sharing:

    Love reading about your preparations! It inspires to me to consider how we might help the children and families in Mekele when we can turn our attention to that down the road. Let’s keep each other in prayer!!
