Help us to raise money for OPDE! OPDE, located in Huye, Rwanda, provides support for children facing abandonment with programs to combat malnutrition, improve child literacy, and ensure protection of children against all forms of neglect, cruelty, exploitation, sexual abuse, and discrimination. For more information on the programs they provide, please visit their website: www.opderwanda.org.
On October 24, our study abroad group will be participating in a Talent Show, Hokies for Huye, to raise funds for OPDE. We’ve set a fundraising goal of $5,000 to support OPDE's work. There are currently 18 acts for the talent show, but only the 10 acts that raise the most money will perform on the day of the event! For our act, Cristina Pizzano, Nicole Richardson, and Angela McGlathery will ask each other a series of questions to test our friendship. The unlucky guesser who answers incorrectly will get slapped in the face with a big slice of pepperoni pizza by the other two.
Please donate to this page, even if it's just a few bucks!! All the winning acts will be recorded and posted to the Linking Lives Instagram. Consider donating if you want to witness the slap down of the century. We would love to perform and support such an amazing organization!
