While here, I've also been working and fundraising to support Hope Ignited's projects. I've spoke at three churches, sharing pictures and stories. The knitting and bicycle program stories were big hits--as well as the pictures of the caterpillars I ate.
All of the knitting project goods were sold as of yesterday. The ladies will be really excited about this when I get back.
We also had three fundraising parties. All of which went really well. We had lots of fun doing jewellery exchanges, catwalk parties, 50/50 draws and silent auctions. Thank you to everyone who offered their space, helped organize and contributed food and prizes.
I'm leaving in just a few days (May 2) until December. There is still opportunity for you to support financially and help with this year's projects. The issues of personal housing and ongoing monthly support are still needs. If you'd like to contribute, please click the "Donate" page and help me meet our goals.
