Greetings from Nairobi! 

We have a great opportunity for you to connect with youth living in East African slums.  

Youth like Audrey Peavey, Eric Siriama living in Nairobi want to tell their  stories on video.

People everywhere can learn and enjoy from their stories -  if Audrey and Eric have the opportunity to open up their creative vent and share their stories with the world through digital video. 

Audrey and Eric are trainees at Hot Sun Foundation, where they are attending a five-month intensive film school.Audrey  and Eric are paying 4% of the actual costs of the Hot Sun Foundation Film School.

How is that possible?

Because of people like you who are ensuring a better life for youth like Audrey and Eric in East Africa through supporting Hot Sun Foundation.

All you have to do is give up one lunch at a restaurant once a month.  Consider making a small sacrifice to nourish the creativity of youth in East African slums.

Sign up for a recurring monthly donation of USD30 or more at http://www.globalgiving/3632.

Audrey and Eric will send you a personal thank you.

Do it today. 

Your monthly sacrifice makes a difference for  young people like Audrey and Eric.

And for your own well being every single month. 

Start your own virtuous circle of generosity. 

Connect with Audrey and Eric every month.  

Spread the word on facebook, twitter, blogs.

Thanks for all you do.

PS If you can't make a monthly connection, your donation is still very much appreciated.
