We are much in awe of our friend April's courage, determination and resolve to truly make a difference in the life of Mahadi and his friends at the Wakiso School of Hope. She started her 501 (c) 3 earlier this year, The Bernie Project. Their vision starts with stabilizing the most essential basics—nutrition, hygiene, health and education for the children at the Wakiso School of Hope in Wakiso, Uganda.
It takes little to make a huge difference in Wakiso!
What can $32.00 do in Uganda?
It can: Feed one child for 5.5 weeks
Provide Menstrual Kits for 2 girls for a year
Provide Hygiene Kits for 3 kids for a 3 months
Give Malaria Treatment for 4 kids
We are doing our teeny-tiny part to help by spreading the word.
There are many ways you can support the children of Wakiso.
- Starting with as little as $10 a month you can become a "Bernie's Buddy".
- Make a One Time Donation. $25 can feed a child three healthy meals a day for a month! More is welcome! :-)
- Purchase children's books, holiday cards and jewelry from the STORE
- Sign up with iGive and generate a corporate donation every time you shop online! It's FREE!!!
iGive can raise funds from online travel booking! As much as we all travel, we can become A+ philanthropists without spending a dime!
April stopped by Janet's house in Pasadena this Saturday on her fundraising road trip.
Thank you to our local friends for attending! We so appreciate it and we had fun!
Her little black dresses and high heels are in storage, her airplane ticket is booked. After a quick holiday break in Illinois, April will fly off to Uganda on January 5th.
We will vicariously live through her adventures and "cyber stalk" her on Facebook and Twitter and share some of the adventures and successes on our blog and our Facebook page.
DJ Matt, a true F-o-A (Friend of April) selected music to get you in the mood!
