From my time in Africa I've made a few frisnds. Two of them worked for the US Military and were amazing at helping us with a million different things and damn sure for helping keep us safe. They were like our liaisons to the local community. Two of them never worked for us but have become true friends that I still talk to often. 3 of the 4 of them have kids. I cant begin to express what it would mean to them to help them out. None of them have any idea that im trying. School for kids cost about $300 USD a year. An astronomical amount in Burkina Faso, and there is no such thing as public school. This isn't just helping some random people on TV this is helping my friends, and theyve definitely helped me. One of them just had his entire house destroyed by a monsoon. While we were able to raise the funds to help rebuild his home, many of his and his families belongings were lost, making it even more difficult to pay for school. If you were planning on buying Myself, Amanda, or Lincoln anything for Christmas please put the money here instead. There is nothing we need they dont need far more. We've all had a year made difficult by the Rona, but Africa has had it.far worse and it doesn't even make the news. Please consider helping if you can. USD goes a lot further over there. I dont want them to just have a good Christmas, if we can raise $600 or more each we can change their lives forever. I know its a lot but im after it.. Thank you!!
