Recently, a friend of mine mentioned her dad was heading off to Uganda this month on a mission. I don't think I really understood what it was all about until I sat down and had coffee with Bruce, and read up a little more about it here, and here. Long story short, 9 people off to Masaka, Uganda to help out, in most any way they can. Currently fundraising for children, schools, families. To help them buy chickens, pigs, pay school fees, & access to clean water.
In the article you will read, they are going to give a "hand up", not a "hand out." Helping the locals learn to sustain themselves.
100% of the proceeds go to the people of Uganda.
So, these little guys will be making the journey over there as well. A rather small contribution, but usually a given smile if nothing else.
Monsters love kids, and kids love monsters, so they are of course excited! Annnnd, we've been told that banana's are quite popular as well. Monsters + Kids & Banana's = Love
I'm excited to hear about the trip, and hope to update when I can :)
