My dear family and friends,

I am asking for your help. By donating supplies for my trip to Kenya (political situation permitting – otherwise Ghana) you can help me help others. Your donations are tax deductible and accepted with our deepest gratitude.

Watch this space for stories and photos of your contributions at work in July ’08.
