Today on Country 93.3 I announced that I am going to Tanzania, East Africa on October 16th until November 1st. Thank you to everyone who helped me a few weeks ago when someone stole my recycling at Sister Mary Phillips School. I ended up raising 4000 dollars in donations and recycling.
Me announcing my trip to Africa at Country 93.3fm with Jerry Neville!
I have now raised over 15,000 dollars since January and 25,000 since last year! Because I reached my goal I am now going to TANZANIA on October 16th until November 1st, 2013. I will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on October 19th and then going to see my wells the following week. Thank you everyone for helping me achieve my DREAM and GOAL! I am really happy!
Jerry excited to hear my news :)
