More than enthused to serve as an Executive Marketing Consultant for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and assist in creating an enaging campaign for this year's Black History Month entitled, Rise Up and Learn: A Desk Makes All Difference.
Although, we have many educational challenges here in the U.S., no one can imagine a child doing their school work on dirt and mud floors. This is the norm in Africa. Education is key for children to lift themselves out of poverty, but 30 million kids in Africa are not in school. Millions more struggle to learn while sitting on the floor. Giving children desks is a first step to helping students fulfill their dream of an education. Launched by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, the Kids in Need of Desks (K.I.N.D.) fund has already provided desks to nearly half of all primary school students in Malawi. With a simple donation of only $65, you can provide a desk for 3. But just as important, with the desks being built in their communities. Your donation will also assist in growing their local encomy as well.
Our goal this year is raise to $1920 enough for 30 desks that will ensure that over 90 children will receive an education. Many thanks for your donation to this much needed cause and please share with your family and many friends.
