A Merry Christmas for Karim Orphanage

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, AND A HUGE THANK YOU to the Karges family — especially young Spencer and Phoebe — and their friends Mia and Lily. These awesome kids took the initiative to raise money for Karim Orphanage by selling water on their front lawn in Florida. We thank them not only for being inspirational and really cool for taking time out of their normal lives to raise money for children they barely know on this side of the world — but  more importantly for sending their LOVE to the Kids of Karim.

With their generous donation, we were able to buy 2 bikes for the kids, 4 pairs of BRAND NEW! shoes, and some special treats for them for Christmas — hotdogs, popcorn and candy! (Who knew they loved hotdogs so much?!!)

They are truly feeling the love of this holiday season — and having some serious FUN! —  so again thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful contribution.

Here are some videos of the kids riding their new bikes (and surprisingly taking turns!) and trying on shoes, as well as some additional photos, including shopping for treats (hot dogs!) with Mama Rehema.

Thank you all for your continued support of the projects we are doing on this side of the world. More updates will follow on all of the projects as soon as I have more news to share! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!

With love from Tanzania,
