Fundraising

Help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 through online donations. We are asking every participant to create their own personal fundraising page with your personal goal amount, then ask your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc to support you.

As an incentive for fundraising, we would like to give any participant who raises $100 a lovely, one of a kind, scarf handmade in Kenya. Additionally any participant who raises $200 or more will receive a beautiful soap stone family statue made in Kenya. We will allow the choice of the scarf based upon the order in which you reach the goal. They are all beautiful but if you have a favorite then start asking for support ASAP!
