The Seattle-based Olsen Family made a recent donation that came with a special request that I buy soccer balls and other athletic equipment for the Cura kids to enjoy this trip. I picked up some of those items today, and I concentrated on balls made by Alive and Kicking, another Kenya-based non-profit that's doing admirable work. Also, their tagline is pretty awesome.

Thanks, Olsens!

Birthday Goodness

Monday is ending here in Nairobi, but it's still Cura-sponsor Beth's birthday on  the west coast of the US... and she's been encouraging her friends to give! 

In lieu of gifts to her, her friends have already donated about $4500 through our Network for Good link. As I put my jet-lagged head on my pillow here, I'm sending a big 

Happy Birthday!

to Beth and a heart-felt 

Thank You! 

to the generous people who have included Cura in their celebration of her.

High Tech Plea

Last June, we did a major overhaul of the computer lab equipment... and it's time to do it again! Our Nairobi-based IT folks say we need about US$800 worth of work done... please message me if you're willing to contribute to this cause!
