300 Dolls Going to Kibera!

Happy news to post today! My wonderful friend Cathy and her group of fearless knitters in Lexington, VA have finished 300 knitted "Comfort Dolls" for our team to take with us to Kibera. Now every child we work with will get to take with them a little reminder that they are LOVED! Here is a photo of the completed work:

Fundraising Update and Final Stretch

Hi Wonderful Friends,

Sorry it's been a bit since I've updated the blog. Life has a funny way of surprising you when you least expect it... I got engaged to a wonderful, amazing man and life got a little busy! Now it is time to get down to business and make this crazy dream of mine happen before I leave for Kenya July 28th!

GOAL: To Raise $14,000 for orphans and vulnerable children in the slum of Kibera.
- $4,000 for travel expenses, camp materials for the kids and food.
- $10,000 for medical supplies, school supplies and clothing for the children.

You all are awesome because my latest fundraising update was $6,390!

Basically I have about a month to raise the $7,610... let's make this happen! Even $5 helps. Tell your friends, family, co-workers. I have an amazing friend who is running a marathon for me... how rad is that?? Let's make a little difference in these kids' lives.
