Season’s Greetings, my favorite good people.. Hoping your holidays have been full of love! As many of you know, my birthday is fast approaching on December 30th, and each year I humbly ask you to join me in supporting our beloved non-profit organization, THRIVEGulu in Northern Uganda.
*I'm turning 36 this year, & I'd love to work with all of you to raise $36k for our programs. **One generous donor has agreed to match all the funds raised here, dollar for dollar..!!
If we can raise $18k, it will go twice as far and make all my birthday wishes come true!
THRIVEGulu works with nearly 1000 people in 25 empowerment groups in and around Gulu, Uganda. These groups are working together to heal from the trauma of 20 years of conflict with Joseph Kony’s LRA. With the help of THRIVEGulu, they’re learning how to manage their finances and start small businesses, in order to support themselves and their families. They’re attending THRIVEGulu’s literacy classes and learning how to read and write. They’re seeing THRIVEGulu’s counselors for individual and group therapy sessions to help them deal with past and current traumas.
This organization and all we've been able to do with YOUR help means the absolute world to me. Your donation, small or large, is the greatest gift I could receive (& it will undoubtedly make YOUR heart sing as well!) We are all brothers and sisters! When we support each other -across the planet- we create solidarity and harmony. That's the kind of world I dream of living in, and I imagine you do, too!
With your generous support, we can help all of THRIVEGulu's group members achieve their dreams.
With deepest gratitude and love & as they say in Uganda, Apwoyo Matek!
