Provide School Shoes to Kenyan Orphans

Sep 6, 2011

FAF is a membership organization

Life at the Good Samaritan Children's Home is going well despite the famine in northern Kenya.  Through GlobalGiving we have raised $175 for tuition--Project 6163--and $75 for shoes--Project 7377--during the month of August.  In addition, the organization has raised about $400 from our sales at the Grand Rapids Artisan Market and through general donations and membership.  Funds raised under these conditions are used for general support at the orphanage.  If the orphanage reports a food shortage, the children can be fed from this fund.

August is membership month at  Fabulous African Fabrics with fees supporting the organization's operational expenses.  You can become a member of FAF by requesting a form at 1158 Kensington St. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49534.  Members also are invited to various meetings and parties during the year and receive a quarterly newsletter.

None of the donations you make on Global Giving will be used for operations or general support for the orphanage.  These funds are restriced to the above named projects.



About Project Reports

Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.

If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.

An anonymous donor will match all new monthly recurring donations, but only if 75% of donors upgrade to a recurring donation today.
