Important Message from Tuzina!
How can we ever thank you, our beloved backers, for your generosity, encouragement, and support? Because of you, we are OFFICIALLY headed to Lukodi in May! But please don't stop the donations just yet--we still have a bit more to raise. Our goal is to reach $21,000 because it costs $3,500 per person (with six people going in total). Even MORE amazing would be if we could raise enough extra money to give the gift of music while we're there: ChildVoice International has a policy of not allowing interns to bring gifts that cause dependency (books, money, etc.). However, they would love it if we were able to purchase instruments while we are there to give to the women and children to use during dance classes before and after we leave. We would also love to be able to help Averi buy a nice camera to film the documentary that we would like to enter into film festivals to further spread awareness. Please spread the word that any extra funds raised over the next 18 hours will be just as crucial as the first $20,000! And THANK YOU again for your incredible outpouring of love!
Also, be sure to take a look at ChildVoice International. We are incredibly blessed to be able to work with such a beautiful and holistic organization!
