I'm on my way!!!
November 06, 2016
It started with a couple photographs on a friends Facebook page. I saw it the first time and planned to come back to it but forgot. A couple of weeks later he reposted the request for help and I decided to call him and ask some more questions. I'm blessed. I have a husband who loves me, children who adore me and extended family that feel the same way. But not all families are like this. Not all children have their parents living with them or even when they do their parents have no money to feed, clothe or provide them with shelter. These are the children I want to reach with the generous donations I'm asking you for. Praise Bamidele resides in a home in the Ososami Neighbourhood of Ibadan, Nigeria.The home provides shelter to close to 50 kids. It is overcrowded but a safe place for these children Instead of out on the streets of Ibadan. G12 which consisted of a group of friends have somewhat adopted Praise. We pay for all his needs by contributing a sum annually to ensure all his needs including education, physical and medical wellbeing are met. We want to help more kids but we need funds. This is where you come in. I'm a runner(can't believe I said that). Come October through December, I will be running two marathons and 2 half marathons. I would like to make the 157, 200 steps I'll be taking in the course of these races work for these children. Please consider making a generous donation to this cause. All funds raised go directly to the children and it goes a long way to make their lives so much more happy.
