shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 28839

Hello! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.

I am reaching out to share a cause that has recently become incredibly close to my heart. On Nov 3rd, 2024, I am participating in the TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for a groundbreaking initiative – the construction of sub-Saharan Africa’s first children’s cancer hospital (how incredible!!!).

This past summer in June of 2023 I had the opportunity to travel to Kenya and meet some of the amazing children that live in Kibera, the largest urban slum in Africa. With these children I got to play games, color, braid hair, and laugh a ton. They were so sweet and I can’t wait for the day I get to go back and see them again! I learned so much about their way of life and what makes us all so unique, but also all of our similarities and the ways that we are no different. They have an incredible and vast culture that is so beautiful, but they also have deep heartbreaking struggles that take more than just a village to help improve.

The current reality is that 9 out of 10 children diagnosed with cancer in this region do not survive. The need for urgent intervention is evident, and that’s why I am running for Shoe4Africa, an organization committed to making a difference.

Shoe4Africa has already achieved a significant milestone by building East & Central Africa’s first Public Children’s Hospital, which has provided crucial care to over 1,000,000 children. Now, we aim to take it a step further by constructing a dedicated children’s cancer hospital.

I am here to ask for your support in this meaningful journey. 100% of your donation, regardless of the amount, will go directly to this noble cause (seriously every single dollar). Together, we can make a substantial impact on the lives of children facing cancer in sub-Saharan Africa forever!

Thank you for considering my request, and I appreciate any support you can provide. If you are unable to give at this time I ask you to please share my page to others and spread the word about Shoe4Africa.

In love,

P.S. every donation is tax-deductible and we also accept company matches!
