One day to go!

It is the night of May 23rd and we leave tomorrow night! We would like to thank everyone who donated to the Aghozo-Shalom Village.  Thanks to every one of you, we have surpassed our fundraising goal of $5,000 and as of now we are proud to say we have made $5,563! We will continue to raise money for the village upon our return, and are very excited to finally see the village in action. We will be able to witness verything we have been writing about in our fundraising letters and telling people about in our conversations about our trip. Only a few more days until we meet at the airport to divide up the hundreds of pairs of shoes we collected and take a 24 hour plane ride to Kigali!

  1. Hoping that the team has a safe journey, productive (and fun!) conversations, and new friendships. Does the laptop you have allow for Skype? If so, that would make for an awesome way to spread the word regarding the village and its mission. Perhaps some high school students with similar interests would like the opportunity to ask questions. Just a thought...
