A Christmas request...

Well my parents are on their way back home after a great 2.5 week visit in Zambia, that included a visit to Victoria falls (see last post), a great safari (we saw EVERYTHING!!), but even better, my parents seeing my home in Mansa, and meeting my Zambian family, the Lwandos. I was really hoping to put up a few more pictures from their visit, but the internet isn't cooperating. I'll try again later this week, but given the many things I hope to accomplish before I leave Zambia on Saturday, it may have to wait until I get back home.

For the moment though, I have a request. I have committed to raising $2500 for EWB this Christmas season. Many of you supported me two years ago when I was first setting out to Zambia. I ended up raising over $3000 toward my placement. Now, after spending two years living and working here, I am even more convinced that EWB is contributing toward creating a better world, both in Africa, and at home in Canada. I would humbly ask that you check out my personal site, and help me reach my goal. This is a great alternative to the thousands of dollars we spend on each other at this time of year. Help me and help EWB spread the love a little wider this Christmas season. Thank you in advance for your support. It means so much to me, but more importantly, it is creating positive change for thousands of wondeful people who deserve the same chances we get in Canada.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in just a few days!!
Much love from Zambia,
