BENEFITING: FOUNDATION FOR TOMORROW

EVENT DATE: Feb 26, 2012

Candice Smith

THE STORY:

Thank you for considering to donate towards my efforts to run the climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. I am making an attempt at this beast of climb to benefit The Foundation For Tomorrow (TFFT). TFFT  works to improve the quality of education provided in Tanzania while also providing scholarships to orphaned and abandoned children in Tanzania.
 
As many of you know I have always had a passion and love for Africa. In 2006 I decided to just take the leap and fly to Africa. I flew myself to Tanzania to volunteer in an orphanage. While I was there I met Meghann Gunderman, who was starting The Foundation For Tomorrow (TFFT), from the moment I met her I knew she was amazing and was going to do wonderful things, which she has with the help of the wonderful people involved with TFFT. I always knew I wanted to be involved and make Tanzania a part of my life. Over the last 5 years life has gotten a bit in the way with work and school. But I have come to a point that if it is something I’m passionate about then I need to just go for it! 
 

When I was in Tanzania I met a group of young children that changed my life forever. These children are now benefiting from TFFT with all the work they do. This is a chance for me to give something to these kids who have done so much for me.

 

Thank you all for your support and belief in The Foundation For Tomorrow! To learn more please visit www.thefoundationfortomorrow.org.
