Walk for Economic Empowerment


On September 26, I'll be participating in a Walk for Economic Empowerment (http://www.w4ee.org/) to support World Relief and their Savings for Life programs (see the links below for more info). World Relief is a fantastic organization with incredible programs, focused on empowering churches and communities to serve the most vulnerable. Their savings programs play a key role in this, particularly in post-conflict situations, and I think they're worth supporting!

I'm not big into setting fundraising goals - I don't want you to feel pressured to give (although it's definitely a worthy cause) and I'd only pick an arbitrary number. That said, I would love it if you would take a few minutes to check out the links below, learn about World Relief and the work they're doing around the world - particularly through the Savings for Life program - and consider supporting me as I support them in this walk!

If you do decide to sponsor me, go to my W4EE page (first link below), and click SPONSOR ME to the left of the note I have there. Sponsorships will go to the Savings for Life projects at World Relief. If you don't feel comfortable making an online donation, checks can be made out to World Relief and sent to their headquarters office at 7 East Baltimore St, Baltimore, MD, 21231.

Thanks a bunch!
