I am beyond thrilled to announce that the donations for Wrap Up Africa have now gone above and beyond our goal of $5500. Each time I have checked the status this week as I've traveled around Europe my jaw has dropped. What incredibly generosity and kindness...what an extraordinary effort to witness. I have seen this generosity throughout the blogosphere time and time again over the past few years, but this is the first time I have played any kind of direct role in fundraising. But I say that and I really don't mean it - posting a blog entry was such a small thing - an indirect role, really. The real leader here is Letha Sandison, who created Wrap Up Africa in the first place and works tirelessly to not simply keep her vision moving forward, but soaring to extraordinary heights.
Wrap Up Africa now has what it needs to move into their new space in Uganda, but any additional donations will certainly be appreciated. All donations through this Friday, April 30th will be included in my give-aways, and I will announce the winners early next week. If you donated through blog posts over at Marianne Elliott, Leana May - or anywhere else for that matter - you'll be entered for the give aways! Head here to read all the details and make a contribution.
Letha has promised to send photos of the new space, so stay tuned to see what you helped accomplish!
