THE STORY:

As many of you know, and many may not, I recently went on a volunteer trip to Kenya. I did travel to a few different places in my time there both leisure and volunteering, but primarily I was in Nairobi. I had an absolutely amazing trip! I met many amazing people I will never forget and I hope the will continue to be a part of my life. I learned many things about various cultures there as well as learning more about my self. I gave all I could with all of my heart and I was still given so much more in return. I cannot even come up with words to fully describe my trip, but trust it was the best experience I have had yet. I worked on several small projects and was able to contribute to many of them myself. However, the place I spent the majority of my time was a rescue center and school for children. I definitely left a piece of my heart there. I did as much as I could for them my self and with other amazing volunteers while I was there. The children are all so very special and dear to me now. I would like to get them all school boxes. School boxes may not seem like the most dire thing, but it is a necessity for when they are able to go to boarding school (which is hopefully a goal they will all reach). The boxes are also something every child desperately wants because it is something of their own and ensures they have a safe place they can keep items and lock them up. Each box costs $15usd. My primary goal is to raise $700usd because that will be enough to ensure everyone that is there that does not currently have a box will receive one as well as locks for them. Any additional proceeds will go to getting any new children to the center boxes and locks as well, and if there is any left the rest will go to ensuring that the children currently at primary school have math sets for school. I know not everyone can contribute the $15 for a box but anything you can and are willing to give will be much appreciated.
