BENEFITING: 2SEEDS NETWORK
EVENT DATE: Jul 14, 2012
Many of you have heard that I will be moving to Tanzania for the next year. Tis true. You came here because I promised more information.
I will be living in the Magoma region of Tanzania working through an organization called the 2Seeds Network. The organization is in its third year and it has 9 projects on the ground in the Northeast region. My specific project involves working in two schools empowering youth and community members to find solutions to the problems of food insecurity. In the past two years, they have done this through cultivating a watermelon farm to fund their school lunch program and through a chicken coop.
I am training for a half-marathon and I hope that you will support my efforts by donating to the project I will be working on next year. You can follow the progress on my blog, on the official 2Seeds website, on our project blog, and on our facebook page. However you want to connect is up to you. If you are shy about giving, just think about all of the drinks and food I would have mooched off of you in the next year anyway. I promise this is more worth it.
$25, $1, $100, $1,000, no amount is too little or too much.
I just want as many people to get involved as possible and to follow along with me in this adventure.
