Stella Marris Centre

$2,740 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 20 people in 57 months

We are in our 5th year in raising money for Stella Marris and the need is still just a great.  So many of you have opened your hearts to these children who are just trying to get a great education.  Most all of you know the story of why my heart is with these children so I come to you again, raising money for these beautiful faces in Kenya. As we approach this time of giving I am asking you once again to help out.  Our goal this year is $3500.  Last year we raised almost $3000 but as we all know the price of everything keeps increasing and I would also life to gift the teachers a bit of extra money because they are basically working for nothing. If you have any questions about Stella, please let me know.  Thanks again for all of your thoughts, prayers and gifts.

Last chance to help during this season of giving. I plan to shut this down tomorrow because the money needs to begin its journey to its final destination. Please consider one last Christmas gift this season. God bless you and have a very merry Christmas.

Reaching out once more to request support for Stella Marris. School begins, in Kenya, in January so I will be sending all donations around Christmas time. Please consider a Christmas gift for those less fortunate. And a special thanks to those who have already given to support these beautiful children.

Stella Marris is a small school located in Nairobi, Kenya. Very little funding is given by the government of Kenya so funds are always running low for public education. A few very dear friends of mine support and run this school so each year I try to raise money for these students. For books, uniforms, desks, paint to paint the chalkboard on the walls and small amounts of food for those who have the greatest need. There are also 8th graders who are graduating from the school who must go on to boarding schools, which if not helped, they will never attend. A full year of school for one high school student is around $250. That includes room and board, as well as uniforms. We all know that education is the only way out of poverty for many kids and especially these beautiful children who, like us, did not choose to be in the position they are in. Therefore, it is with great love and devotion to education and these children and I choose to raise money each year. Won't you please join me in giving just a bit? No donation is too small. In the end, if I reach my goal I would like to send a small bonus to all the teachers who work with such passion for so little money.

Another year has passed and a new school year is revving up to begin in January. You know what that means. I'm asking for money again. Please consider a small donation to provide a much-needed education for children who have little hope of a future without one. Every penny counts. Thank you for your time and consideration.
