From Chicago to Livingstone Zambia

Posted October 13, 2012 from United States

I am in Livingstone Zambia right now where I presented a very poor new pre-school with educational supplies the money of which was raised by 7 year olds in Chicago Illinois as they sold lemonade/soda outside their house. The school of 3-5 year olds and the teacher have NOTHING but now they have everything because of these kind, big hearted little children who gave of their time to earn the money for educational supplies. Generosity has no age limit. They have changed the lives of 20- 3-5 year olds and have given the teacher hope and inspiration.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Those 7year-olds sure have a heart of gold like yours.They've already started on a firm footing and are headed for greatness.

Great work!

Hi Chicago Girl!

We will work together some day. I just got in tonight from Zambia (2 days to get home) so I am jet lagged big time. but when i get my energy back I will write about the huge things that happened in just 5 days. My birthday party there, the fact that the Zambian Soccer team WON the game that qualifies them for the World Cup next year (Go Chipolopolos) and the progress of some of the kids and my little new pre-school. You will love the pictures.Very moving. But right now I am falling asleep. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Haha.

Ubuntu,

Wendy
