After my trip to Uganda (full diary here, read from the bottom), Dawn and I decided to do something more substantial to help make lives better for the people of Suma Village, Uganda, Africa, by matching donations for the building of classrooms and sanitary facilities in the school, which is in desperate need. For every dollar donated by others (up to $4,000) by March 31, Dawn and I will match it!! The $8,000 will fund the project completely (this is a fraction of what this would cost to build in the west, so your money is well spent.) The work will be done by the villagers but money is needed for the materials!
A huge thank you to Andrew Chaplin, Margo Jackisch, Paul Willamson, Chris & Sue Korsgard, Tony and Sandy Urbik, Joanne Callaghan & The Van Loon Family, Tedd Mallasch, Adrian Boulding, Maria, Jamie Galeher, Team Clark, Cory Korsgard, Woody & Melch, Don Smith, Bill & Judy Mulcahy, Lori and Henry, Nick Vlahos, Reggie, Keith and Lauren Smith, Marilyn Skok, Jill Fahlgren, The Petersens and one anonymous donor who have already made generous donations!
As of this moment, we have raised 70% of the funds necessary. Even small amounts by many people can quickly add up and we can meet our goal. If you dig into your pockets, we’ll dig into ours!!
One of the people who donated sent me this note: “Thanks for spearheading this. We take so much for granted having food and whatever else we want every day. These people lack those basic needs and it just doesn’t seem right.”
