Honor Tony's Birthday

Tony would say, "Donate to my fund or else!"
Tony would say, "Donate to my fund or else!"

During the month of December Fabulous African Fabrics  honors memory of FAF's founder's son, Anthony Salazar by asking for donations in his name.  Tony passed away in 2005 of an AVM at the age of 37. 

We've attached a picture of Tony at age 15 just to show you what a guy he was, full of energy and wit.  He loved to experiment with his image and just who he could be.  He went from the snarky teenager we see here to a generous and loving man.  It is appropriate to honor his spirit and memory through gifts to the children of the Good Samaritan Children's Home in Nairobi Kenya, who also need the freedom to experiment and develop their personalities. 

The fund goes to  help FAF maintain emergency dollars for the orphanage.  Last year this money paid high school tuition for teens at the Good Samaritan Children's Home.  Next year we don't know where the money goes, but if you donate to Project 6163 now we know that there will not be such a chruch when it comes to collecting the $1000 per child per year for tuition.

We wish you the happiest of holidays, and a generous spirit.
