BENEFITING: Self Help Africa
EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
Dear Friends and Family,
I am both extremely excited and incredible frightened to be running my first marathon on Monday, April 16th in Boston.
I am even more excited about running the 26 miles for a charity that has been close to my heart and that I have been proud to be part of since I arrived in New York.
Self Help Africa works with rural communities to bring sustainable solutions to the causes of hunger and poverty.Their mission is to provide practical support to allow them to produce enough food to feed themselves and trade their way out of poverty. Not only are they effective and efficiently run, they produce tangible and measurable results that make a real difference on the ground and in the lifes of countless people living in Africa
To sum up, Self Help Africa provides food and a future. It is a help up not a hand out.

I know that everyone recieves requests on a daily basis to give to causes around the world and it is difficult to support all but I do hope you will consider making a donation to this worthwhile cause.
Every penny counts and no donation is too small
I really appreciate your support.
