On April 24, 2011 I will be turning the big 2-1 and for months I've been thinking of a memorable way to celebrate 21 years of life that the Lord has given me. With the passing of my father last May, I kept reflecting on his selfless teachings and great compassion for others. I finally realized that after 21 years, God has proved himself time and time again as a great provider for not only myself but my family. Thus, I can honestly admit that I don't need or want any material or personal gifts to celebrate.
Instead, I have decided to give back to a community desperately in need. Therefore, in the oncoming weeks I have set a goal to fundraise $2100 for the families who have been severely impacted by the tsunami in Japan on March 11, 2011. I assure you that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the relief efforts of the Convoy of Hope, a non-profit organization which has served more than 41 million people throughout the world through international children's feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing. Please take this time to reflect on our privileged positions and help me celebrate my birthday by showing compassion to those in need.
Thank you so much for your support in helping me reach my goal!
