Where will you take Africa with you today?

Have you heard about the Nakate Project?  My friend Shanley Knox is doing something special.  Something more than 9 to 5.  Here is a little bit about the project.

"In 2010, we met a 7-year-old named Cossy Nakate. Suffering from AIDS, orphaned and living in a small African village called Kakooge, Cossy impacted us in a way we couldn’t stop thinking about. We shared our lunch with her. We started paying for her food every month. But it wasn’t enough. We knew we had to change not only her life, but the lives of the women in her village – and the lives of their daughters after them."

Are you interested in learning more?  Watch this video.  Take the time to check it out.  I think you will be impressed.  I know I was. 

You can check out the Facebook page, follow on Twitter, and check out their site.  What an awesome thing Shanley is doing.  I just have to be a part of this, even if it is just in a small way.  To think outside ourselves.  To reach out to others who are less fortunate. 

Hope you are had a great holiday weekend!
