THE STORY:

Hello, my dearest friends!

It's my birthday month and I’m not usually the kind of gal to ask for a gift, but maybe just this year…

It’s been two years since my Chiropractic mission trip to Ethiopia! When I was preparing to journey to Ethiopia, I never dreamed that I would absolutely fall in love! My experience with these children has touched my heart forever. Because of this amazing school I was able to have such an enriching adventure with these beautiful children and experience all the love they had to share.

Along with providing them with education and food, Fresh and Green has given them hope, safety, and support! However, Friends of Fresh and Green cannot undertake this mission without your help. The amazing woman who took on this school is capable and compassionate, but she needs our support to fulfill her life’s work. In honor of this challenge and as a birthday gift to me, would you find it in your heart to donate today? It would mean the world to me! Every single dollar we get goes directly towards meals, education, and other basic necessities for these kids. Thank you so much!

With love and gratitude,

Merrill

FRIENDS OF FRESH AND GREEN ACADEMY INC wrote -

The children of Fresh and Green Academy have been given a chance at life, through nourishment and education.

Fresh and Green Academy is located in Kotebe, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The director and founder of the school, Muday Mitiku provides a safe and loving learning environment for 182 children who would otherwise be in the streets begging for food instead of receiving a quality education.

All the students receive free education, books, clothing, health care and food because of the generous donations of individuals such as yourself.

A little can go a long way at the school:

$17 buys books for two students

$38 buys food (three meals a day) for a month for one student

$56 buys school supplies and a uniform for two students for the year

$110 pays a teacher's salary for one month

To run the school with food for three meals a day for the children and some families and staff (about 250 people), school rent, salaries, medical expenses, utilities and supplies, it costs $12,000 a month.

Our campaign goal is to raise enough money to run the school through next summer so we can focus our future fundraising efforts on building a new school.

Thank you for your generosity.

         You can help the children grow up and change the world.
