I'm almost there! Help me raise money to travel to Uganda and volunteer

The online donation portion of the raffle is now closed, but there is still time to send a cheque! Click HERE for details or see my previous post. The time of departure fast approaches. In less than a month I am off to Uganda to volunteer with Kirabo Canada - helping to educate and raise the confidence level of former child soldiers and orphans. I am nervous and excited. In addition to teaching jewelry making as an after school activity, I have also volunteered to teach the girls how to make their own reusable menstrual pads. Apparently they are missing school when the menstruate and need help to find a solution. I found detailed instructions online and even though I am not the greatest at sewing, I can definitely purchase the materials with the money everyone has donated and teach the manufacturing.
