OK. I can think of several people who “wanted a way to help and a way to volunteer in Rochester.”
You got it.
I wasn’t going to do this, ever…this whole “ask for something on my blog,” thing. But it’s a special case and a definite emergency. And you wanted to help.
Last week, as you know, hundreds died in the fighting here in Kenya. One little boy named Kamau saw his mom, dad and two siblings get killed by his neighbors. Then he ran as fast as he could and hid in the back of a trailer for mannnnny miles and some police found him. He’s seven.
The man who met him and told me of him is the founder of one of the nicest homes for kids I’ve ever seen. I’m currently making them a website, because they’ve got room for 28 but a budget for 23. The government won’t let anyone from the home go and get Kamau unless they can prove they can afford him for at least a year.
So..Kamau is currently alone at a camp. It was a week or two ago tops that he saw his family die and we know right where he is and could go get him if we just had the funds.
If you want to host a run, a party, a game night..SOMETHING…now’s the time. If you want, email me for more details on everything. He would be so much happier in “Morning star” than alone at the camp.
Make it fun, just let me know asap if you can help. Looks like we need at least 820 dollars. Then we’ll got get him and bring him to the home.
