Did anyone see Oprah yesterday? If you missed it please visit her website. This was a very inspirational episode, showing high school students that raise money to build schools (and other infrastructure) in developing nations. The high school team that was featured had raised money to build a school in Kenya. Only $8,500 was needed to build a school and you couldn't help but to go online and donate to this awesome charity!
My assistant works with a man who was raised in Kenya and that man sends $100 from his paycheck (twice a month) back to poor families in Kenya and he tells such wonderful stories that really highlight the cultural practices of his village back home in Kenya. The talk lately had been about our country's failing economy and rising energy costs but after yesterday's Oprah episode and I am grateful for what I have!
