Fundraising Update

Hi Everyone!

Great news... thanks to all of your help I have raised a total of $4,460 for my Kenya trip. Here is how it will break down.

$1,000 raised for Shining Hope For Communities and The Kibera School for Girls.

$3500 to pay for my travel, lodging, some food and camp expenses for Ecclesia's trip to Kenya, working with Homecare Fellowship and Ghetto Light Youth.

Here is what I still need to accomplish:

$787 for a month's lodging at a guest house in Nairobi while I am working at The Kibera School for Girls. (This is not tax-deductible, but if you are interested in supporting me in this area just let me know!)

$7,000-$10,000 for MEDICAL supplies, SCHOOL supplies and CLOTHING for the children of Homecare Fellowship who are in great need.

To DONATE visit: and select "Paige Smith" under team member.

Thank you all for your support and prayers! These kids are counting down to our arrival, let's make this a year they never forget. Spread the word and make a difference! Every little bit helps!

Meet KT11

Here is the first Kenya Team 2011 photo. We have such an amazing group going this year. Everyone is eager to jump in and help in any way possible. We are taking the largest group in Ecclesia history, 21 people in total. 13 folks are returning from trips past. It is such an invaluable gift to these children to return year after year. They know that they can depend on us. To donate to my journey visit: and select team member "Paige Smith". A million thanks for your continued support.
