Just your normal average everyday Joe(ette). LOL I have a strong desire to help those in Africa and through supporting the Nuru Center, we can all help those in need. I'm kinda like the underdog that no one ever believed in, so that has helped me to believe in others. This will be my first, but hopefully not my last, missions trip.
I have 2 dogs that I adopted. They were abandoned at my work place when they were just 11 wks old. I have been training them for the last yr and a half and now they are ready to be certified as Therapy Dogs with their CGC (Canine Good Citizenship). One dog is doing agility, while the other will train in SAR (search and rescue).
I believe in and put my heart into whatever I do. Sometimes, you don't have to be the biggest or the best, you just need to know that someone believes in you and will take the time needed to help you achieve the greatness that is in each one of us.
The Nuru Center, headquartered in Atlanta, GA, helps families and children at Christmas time with Kikapu...Swahili for gift basket. There are families that go for days with nothing to eat. One Kikapu will feed a family of 4 for almost 2 wks. The Nuru Center also helps with medical support and educational scholarship so kids can go to high school.
Thank You for Helping and Believing in Them...
