Dear family + friends,

I have been given an opportunity to go to Africa to volunteer my time and love to children in orphanages, elementary schools and to those suffering from diseases in hospitals. I would be going to Tanzania in February 2018 for 10 days. I will be staying on a farm in the village of Mbahe, (attached you will be able to read more about the village). This trip would involve visiting the local school where the children will be waiting for our arrival to do activities inside and out of the classroom. We will also venture out for a couple of days to the orphanage and hospitals to give our prayers and love to those who are in need. This is a very special trip for me, but very expensive. I am reaching out in hopes that I could get your support and any type of donation, whether it be money, supplies for the children, a prayer or even good luck! Anything would make me happy. So far I have raised $1500 for my flight. I will need to get up to $5000 to be able to go on the trip.

Thank you all and if you know anyone that is willing to send donations/supplies for the children in Africa, please pass my info to them. I am very excited and hope I am able to go to Africa!!

Thanks again. Let me know if you have any questions. Love you all!!!
