It’s that time of year again, when families come together, holidays (& my BIRTHDAY) roll in & we can ALL do some serious GOOD for those who need it! Past campaigns for my birthday helped us build our trauma healing & reflection center in Gulu, Uganda and this year we're helping our family there EVEN MORE!
*I'm dedicating this year’s fundraiser to the memory of our beloved Papa Jim, who just passed away. He was a hero & father, not just to me & my family, but to everyone in our Ugandan family as well. So, my birthday wish is that this year, you, my beautiful & generous friends, donate to THRIVEGulu in Jim’s memory.*
Jim was a huge part of the THRIVEGulu family. He helped build this organization and wanted it to be his legacy. To help make his dream a reality, we have this amazing opportunity to be part of the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge.
Our THRIVEGulu team in Uganda does amazing work every day: working with women’s empowerment groups, teaching computer literacy & business skills. Because we’re doing so many different things, though, sometimes it’s tough to pinpoint what it is we’re about exactly. But these past few weeks, I’ve figured it out. What we do at our center in Gulu is really about FAMILY.
Families & communities were torn apart over more than two decades of civil war in Uganda. THRIVEGulu wants to help victims heal from that trauma. And the key is through rehabilitating families. THRIVEGulu is not about helping just women or just children, but giving parents the skills to support their kids & giving every family the chance for a better future.
We have done incredible work since last year and with your help, we have the chance to DO EVEN MORE. Your continued generosity and support will help us keep our THRIVEGulu family alive & strong. I appreciate, value & adore each and every one of you!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!!
