Make wearing your jeans count!

For January 2012, we have selected LEAD Uganda, an educational leadership program for children in Uganda affected by AIDS, war and poverty. LEAD Ugandan staff located AIDS orphans, former child soldiers, abducted girls and child laborers to give them family so they heal and educate them at the best schools so they gain the entrepreneurial skills they need to achieve their goals and help their communities. If we continue to make our average contributions ($1,800) we can send one child to school for a year covering all of their expenses - tuition, room, board, books, uniform fees, supplies, transportation, etc.

As there are four Fridays in January, the total donation for wearing jeans each Friday for the whole month is $20. If you are planning to wear jeans for fewer than all the Fridays in the month, please feel free to contribute for the relevant number of Fridays only. Of course, if you don't plan to wear jeans, you may still make a donation to the charity, in any amount you wish.

You can make an online donation by clicking the "donate" button on the right hand side or by check made out to "LEAD Uganda" and send the check to Kristyn Noren in 2335-2. Please note that cash will not be accepted.
