6 Days and Counting
Just six days until I depart from NYC for Tanzania next Monday evening! Watch out Africa!
A special thank you is owed to everyone who attended the fundraisers last week as well as those who helped plan and host them. You are all Rock Stars and I am so grateful for your support and encouragement!
In just one night, $1215.00 was raised at Antarctica Bar and in one weekend, an additional $1525 was donated to fund projects at Shalom as well as pay some of my personal expenses on the ground!
I will be giving one final presentation this Sunday, September 20 in Middletown, NJ so if you have missed the others and want to come learn about my involvement with Journeys of Solutions and Shalom Orphanage Center, please do email me for details!
*Still want to donate?! You may donate directly to projects at Shalom by following this link and paying via paypal. Please make sure you designate your contribution for “Shalom-E.Kallop” in the notes section. If you would still like to contribute with cash or check, please email me for details.
Still have questions? Shoot me an email and I’d love to chat! Don’t forget to subscribe to this blog for weekly updates whilst I am in Africa!
Here are just three examples of upcoming projects and how you can help!
1. Purchasing supplies and building bunk beds ($50/bed)
2. Back to School: it costs roughly $40 to purchase a school uniform, a back pack, notebooks and pens for one child for one school year.
3. Market purchases include every day necessities like sugar, tea, laundry soap, salt, body soap and lotion.
