On November 8, I'm turning 26! Instead of gifts, I've decided to ask my wonderful friends and family to donate to my very favorite organization, Warzone Initiatives! My goal is to raise $1,000 between now and November 8.
I love the work that we do at Warzone Initiatives, and every day I feel so thankful to be a part of this incredible organization. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the scale of violence and conflict around the world. But at Warzone Initiatives, we believe that restoration in these places is possible, and we're working to make that happen. We're currently working in five active warzones: Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, Gaza, Myanmar, and Somalia.
And because I think you should also reap the rewards of my birthday, if you give $50+ to this campaign, you'll get a free Klean Kanteen from Warzone Initiatives! And believe me, this thing is great, mine is with me pretty much all the time. If you give $100+, you'll get the Klean Kanteen AND I will make you a homemade baked good of your choice! Cookies, pie, kale chips, everything is on the table. Name your favorite and I'll make it happen!
$1,000 will go a long way to bringing hope to people whose lives have been torn apart by conflict. Thanks for joining and making my birthday extra special!
