Giving Tuesday // RafikiFriends

I know we are all familiar with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but how many of you have heard of Giving Tuesday? It is a movement that was created solely for the purpose to give back.  And today, I would love for you to join me in supporting RafikiFriends on this #GivingTuesday!

I visited the Rafiki Orphanage in Ghana, Africa almost three years ago to the day.  That two week trip is still impacting me today.  I can honestly say I haven't digested everything the Lord showed me while I was in Africa.  But I do know that a part of my heart will forever be with the kids that I met while there.  It was an experience that three years later I still don't have the words for.  When you hold children that have been through more than any child should ever endure, your life changes.  Your views on the world change.  You are a different person than you were, for the better.  The kids that live at Rafiki have taught me more than any other person.

But what breaks my heart is these sweet kids that taught me so much have needs.  Needs that can only be met with the financial support of people like you.  They need clothes to go to school, a new dining hall and supplies after a terrible fire, and basic needs like food and water.

So, on this Giving Tuesday, will you please consider giving to RafikiFriends? It would mean more to me than I can put into words to support the place that gives a home to kids that I absolutely love.
