Sunshine Letter | ‘Sole’ support for Africa trip
June 21, 2014
I wanted to thank the Rotary Club of Truckee for their donation to pay for the shipping of donated shoes as part of my trip to Africa with the Reno-based nonprofit, Think Kindness.
Thanks to their generous donation and the donations of many others, I will be going to Kenya for two weeks to visit orphanages and spend time with the kids. Our group of volunteers will be delivering the shoes that were collected through community drives and at my school, Truckee High, so the kids have an opportunity to attend school.
I am grateful Rotary was willing to donate this money and I am very excited for the adventure.
