I will be selling off personal items next weekend to raise money for shoes. It is a cathartic way to approach spring cleaning while also making a change in a child's life. A win-win!

Make more time in my day to add to the generous time other people have donated.

I have been inspired by the dedication of the small band of incredibly active members who selflessly devote hours and day to sew, travel and promote the needs of this worthwhile cause. It is very easy to feel sympathy for children in need and to whip out a checkbook to make a donation. It is much harder to be the driving force for the betterment of a community a world away. The Fabulous African Fabrics board and extensive membership work very hard to gain every nickel they can raise to make life better and the future provide more potential for these children who are refugees of hunger, poverty and AIDS in a country where strife and political instability are common. There is no greater satisfaction that I can have to be a member of this crew striving to make a change one dime at a time.

I have watched the board gather to discuss policy, to direct goals for fund raising. To see the hand-drawn cards produced by the children of the orphanage giving their thanks and reflecting their pride in their accomplishments. I read the semi-monthly newsletters to become more aware of the effects of a global crisis on children in a far off capitol and to wonder what they are doing on a day-to-day basis. It makes me humble and grateful and wishful that I could do more.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Clone the governing board. You could not meet better people. I would wish that they had more support for their cause, but, they do all that they can with what they have.

No words can describe the amount of passion and dedication FAF board members put in place to make a difference in the lives of HIV/ AIDS orphans and widows in Kenya. Being a Kenyan myself, I had an opportunity to visit Good Samaritan Children Home where I listened to stories from orphaned teens on how FAF funding is positively impacting their lives. Because of FAF the orphans' educational dream is coming into fruition. Because of FAF, vulnerable young orphans who would have perished are getting a new lease of life. To FAF, may God bless the work of your hands and for those who wish to impact someone's life, may you find joy in providing support to FAF as they search for ways and means of helping those affected by HIV/AIDS in Kenya.
