Do something! Feed a school -Uganda

 Did you eat today? Some of our sweet and beautiful friends at "Let's Wake Up" primary school in Uganda generally only eat every two or three days. When they do eat, it is at school and it is with the very best that the school can offer. The school is going above and beyond but the most they can offer is ground, white corn with little nutritional value. As we played and laughed with these beautiful, young children some faded quickly since they hadn't eaten in days. How could we go home and do nothing?This is their everyday life of survival.  We couldn't. And, neither could the young people that we were traveling with. They reached into their pockets and collected $870 dollars before we left. This was enough to feed these sweet children, approximately 100 of them, a nutritious lunch of beans and rice everyday for six weeks. For some, this is truly the only food they get. Please note, regular weekly attendance by local church workers conducting bible teaching is feeding them spiritually! We now want to help feed them physically. The video attached to this campaign was taken just two days after the school received the money. With new plates and a sense of excitement, the children received their lunch! Since that day, we have received encouraging reports of a new found life in the school. Children can learn and play with new energy and happiness due to their full bellies. It is just that easy. We know there are desperate needs around the world. This is clear. But we must start somewhere. Our goal is to raise enough to feed the school for one year. We have already contributed for another six to eight weeks of food but we cannot continue to do this on our own. We need your help. Going forward, we are brainstorming ideas as to how we can make this sustainable. It would break our hearts to feed the children for a year, only to take it away. Golf tournaments, a non-profit...we will look at all options but for right now, the need is urgent! Can you help? Please watch the video and consider how you can help. We will post updates and new videos as the headmistress shares them with us. Thank you from all of the children. We wish you could receive the love and joy from them that we experienced but please know that they are truly thankful and their lives are truly changed!
