Mission Accomplished: Zambia Fund

For the past month or so, I have been raising funds for clean water in Zambia. My target was $510 in honor of my 51st birthday. I celebrated my birthday on Saturday, March 22. We raised $505 dollars, which is great since I made only a few announcements concerning the drive. All funds will support clean water projects in Zambia, Africa. I am going there in May with a short term group from New Orleans, Louisiana. All funds for this drive will be dedicated to water initiatives, not my personal fund-raising needs. 

Thanks to all who gave generously towards this worthy goal. If you feel inclined, the fund is not closed. You can still donate at CleanWater Zambia. I hope to write about the trip to Zambia later this year.

Where we find the deafening silence in the comments section on fund-raising related posts to be a smidgen sad.

There ARE fewer comments on ministry-related posts or fund-raising posts. That doesn't mean that responses are not received. I receive various donations from readers regularly. I started this blog for entertainment, not for educational purposes or for garnering support. It's to be expected that less people are interested as they started following for different purposes. That's understandable. Thanks for your comments, Kim.
