Proud to be HER Mom...

My really incredible daughter, mother, teacher, and woman with a huge, huge heart... needs to take her heart to Africa. Swaziland specifically.

To do so, she is fund-raising (there it is...the f word) and the deadline is quickly approaching. Jamie wants (or more like needs) to go to Africa and see for herself the challenges they face, and she has made a personal commitment to help change the lives of those she will encounter there.

She has a Heart for Africa

Swaziland is a small country located in southern Africa that is home to approximately 950,000 people. The needs in Swaziland are staggering, as HIV/AIDS claims the lives of an estimated 42.6% of the population. The life expectancy in Swaziland is the lowest in all of Africa at 29 years.

Currently it is estimated that there are 200,000 orphans and 15,000 orphan-headed households in Swaziland.

Jamie and her Heart for Africa team will work side-by-side with the children’s homes and organizations to better support them and the orphan headed households in the community. They will help plant backyard gardens and community gardens. They will bring clothing and shoes for the homes that they serve. They will develop small business opportunities for the impoverished women in the community as well as help to provide AIDS education and basic academic education.

She needs to raise about $1600 more dollars by May 7th. Will you please help Jamie get there by making a donation? Even a small one is GREATLY appreciated.

The deadline is MAY 7th.

Thank you from the bottom of my proud Mother's heart!!
