Soup's on for Education
Sunday evening's "Soup's On for Education" event was a great success! Many thanks to all, but especially to the Elm Street Bakery for their time, great food and wonderful help! We are so lucky to have such friends! The “Magpies” offered mellow jazz and the snow outside did not diminish the warmth in the hearts (and bowls) of all those who attended. So grateful! "Soup's on for Education" raised funding for Crossroads Springs Africa. Everyone involved with this event helped Crossroads Springs Africa educate the children at Crossroads Springs Institute, Kenya.
Crossroads Springs Africa Is ...
For children in Kenya who have lost one or both parents to AIDS, there is often little chance for even a primary education, given the need to pay for required uniforms and textbooks even for public education. Having begun with 40 vulnerable children in 2004, Crossroads Springs Institute, in Hamisi, Kenya now educates and cares for 340 of these children, children who would otherwise have had little opportunity to improve their lives, but who now have a bright future because of this loving care and outstanding education.
You can help us change these children's lives... donate now or join us at one of our upcoming events! Better yet, join the 120 friends who sponsor a child... 220 more children would love the chance to have that special connection! You can choose the grade and gender of the child and you'll receive a picture and at least one letter each year from the child you sponsor. $700 will feed, clothe, and educate a child for a year!
