CURRENT APRIL/MAY 2016:
There is around 140 refugees in an abandoned building in Athens that are not receiving regular service from NGO's or other organizations as they are not at the port or in a camp.   They are at danger of deportation because they are from Afghanastan and not Syria.  These are families with young children.  I asked them for a list of things they need today:
Vegetables (tomatoes, carrots, onions)
Rice
Potatoes
Tea
sugar
eggs
1 pair of size 40 ladies flip flops or other shoes
womens underware 
shower gel - about 3 bottles

I'm travelling the world doing volunteer work and random acts of Kindness.  All travel and accomodation is at my own cost but I'd appreciate any donations towards the volunteer work with the refugee's in Greece or the orphanages in Kenya and Uganda. These funds will be used to purchase food, clothing, books and toiletries for those in need.  You canalso sponser a Random act of kindness in another part of the world, then track and see how far your ripple of kindness travels at www.sprinklekindness.ca

I'm now in Kasese Uganda and I have worked on 3 projects!
1. Orphfund Australia has 3 orphanages here and 100% of donations are used directly for the kids. Good clothing shelter and school fees. There are no admin costs as its all volunteer run. I spent 2 weeks helping wherever needed.

2. #ninakaboomboom a textile lable started by a fellow volunteer from #orphfund. This amazing lady Peita from Australia designed a children's dress, skirt, pillow covers, buntings, baby bag, shopper bag, tote bag and pencil/makeup case and taught the patterns to 3 vulnerable women. Scovia, Fortunate and Betty. They have worked hard to produce some really high quality items that they are paid higher wages for then they normally get for tailoring here. The items will then be sold in Australia where 100% of profits will be sent back to Kasese orphanages!
3. Single mothers co-op group started by a local woman named Janet she has taught several women to bead hand bags which they sell at a market. A sewing machine was donated to them by Orphfund so we went to show them some crafts they can make with scrap fabric materials. I also used a donation from #SpeinkleKindness to buy a first round of needles, fabric, chalk, zippers, 10 different colors of thread and misc items to start making items they can sell at the market!

I am so proud of you and what you are doing. So many people would be fearful of these experiences and going at it on your own however you are such a strong person with a huge heart! I am more than happy to be able to donate to this journey of yours and I cannot wait to hear more about the smiles you put on people's faces!
