I Run for Africa
My cousin (& professional photographer) Sarah Elliot, took these captivating shots while living in Kenya. Sarah is a world traveler & focuses on photographing social issues. She is the co-founder of Razon Collective, an international collective of visual storytellers who seek and convey truths and reasons behind every story told. I am so inspired by the work that she does.
Although I have never stepped foot on African soil or or seen a lot of the amazing things that Sarah has, I have a growing heart for Africa's people. On May 22, I will participate in Ellie's Run for Africa, a 5k race raising money and awareness to put children in school in Kibera, Kenya. This is my third year to participate as a "hero," which means not only am I running, but am raising funds as well. Just $25.00 puts a child in school for a year. This means uniforms, a daily meal, and a chance to change their life. Only $25.00! -- what most of us spend on 2 weeks of Starbucks! I have pledged to raise enough money to put 20 kids in school ($500) & I need your help.
You can donate by clicking HERE. I also invite you to read more about my participation with Ellie's run by checking out my race page.
$25 is the magic number, but any amount is a blessing - even just a couple dollars makes a difference. I would love the support of my blog friends. Shoot me an email if you have any questions.
I'm headed to Missouri for my (twin) cousins' masters graduation. I hope you all have beautiful weather & exciting weekends!
