Every morning you have two choices: Continue to sleep through your dreams...or wake up and chase them.
Hi. My name is Melanie and I am looking for help. About seven months ago, my work presented us with an amazing opportunity to raise money to build a medical clinic in Akrofufu, Ghana. I was so inspired by this cause. I've always wanted to go to Africa and do more to help the people there. We live such amazingly, blessed lives here in America. I applied, and am lucky enough to be part of our "World Joy" committee (This is the foundation who began this African effort). We've worked hard to create activities at work to earn money. We are very near our goal! Last week my Boss surprised us with an announcement that in November, some of us can actually go to Ghana and literally help in this building process. I want so badly to go and do this. This project is part of my heart now, and I would love to be able to meet the people this clinic will bless. However, I'm a single Mom and, although I work full-time, I can't raise money fast enough to get there without help. I could never pay this favor back completely... But if others were willing to help me...I would dedicate some of my budget for the next year to a different campaign here on go fund me. I realize that's not much. But I would give for twelve months straight...with all I could... To be able to live out this dream of mine. Please help me check this experience off of my bucket list, if you can. I would be eternally grateful.
