Fundraiser To Buy Christmas Gifts For Children Of The Efruokpe Community in Nigeria. Lets come together and put a smile on a child's face!

Dear Friends & Family,

I've been blessed with 25 years of life, an incredible family, and amazing people that I call friends. I've also been fortunate to come from a pretty privileged home in Nigeria.

Instead of gifts for my 25th birthday I'd like to pay it forward. And I'd like all my friends, family, and acquaintances to do it with me! :)

And so we get to the good part:

This little fundraiser is for the Children of the Efruokpe community of Delta State, Nigeria. Why the Efruokpe community you ask? Well, this tiny village is close to my heart because it also happens to be the village my Grandfather grew up in.

For the 25th of December, 2011, I would like us to come together and buy Christmas gifts (toys, clothes, & picture books) for the children of Efruokpe. Unfortunately, many of these kids come from poor homes where their parents are unable to adequately feed the family, let alone buy gifts for their children. These children deserve compassion and thoughtfulness from those of us that have been so blessed in our lives.

For those of you who live in Nigeria (and can't donate anything online), please feel free to send both old/new toys, clothes, etc to my house in Lagos (you can leave it with my Mum).

Sometimes a little goes a long way. So please find it in your hearts to donate a small amount to this wonderful cause!

Lots of love, God bless.
