BENEFITING: FOUNDATION FOR TOMORROW

EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2012

Ashley

THE STORY:

BACKGROUND: In 2005 I volunteered at the Nkoaranga Orphanage in Tanzania, Africa--the experience that changed my life and led me to my current career of teaching ESL. When I was there I fell in love with the babies/toddlers in the orphanage, and vowed to someday return again.
By a TOTAL chance of fate, I discovered a blog page by The Foundation for Tomorrow (TFFT): a non-profit organization that raises money to send orphaned & abandoned children to a safe place to live and get a free education. While pa-rousing their website, I found pictures of MANY of my once-babies from Nkoaranga Orphanage attending school through TFFT!! I couldn't believe my eyes--I truly thought I would never see these children again. When I shared the news with a friend who is currently living in Tanzania, she only had wonderful things to say about this non-profit and the incredible people running it.

HERE'S THE CATCH: The TFFT organization is having a contest--The person who raises the most funds for The Foundation for Tomorrow from now until July 30th will win an ALL EXPENSES PAID trip to Tanzania in 2013! As you may or may not know, I have been planning to travel again next summer to teach English for a few months anyways, and this is my chance.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?: While I want to raise as much money as possible (so that I can win the trip!), I am asking friends/family/networks to donate anything from a simple $1 to $5. You are obviously welcome to donate more, but I of all people understand that money is tight these days, so please simply donate what you can. Every penny counts, and every penny goes 100% to the organization and the children's education.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.

In advance, THANK YOU for your love and support to help me achieve my dream, while donating to a wonderful cause at the same time. :)
