Summer sale benefited Kenya kids

We hosted a different kind of yard sale on Saturday, June 25th at the church. People stopped by and purchased handmade items (jewelry, clothing, and carvings) from Kenya, plus coffee and tea. In total, the effort raised $740 - not bad for a few hours' work! All the proceeds of the sale will be returned to Nairobi, Kenya, to assist with the education, job training, and life skill learning of the young people who produced the goods that were bought.

The sale was sponsored by our friends at Holy Family Catholic parish in American Canyon, with whom we collaborated on the "Building Bridges to Nairobi" Fashion Show and Dinner in February (to refresh your memory, click here). The beneficiary of both that dinner and this sale is the Nairobi Street-Children Project, which is hoping to soon reach $25,000 in total funds sent to Kenya. We should feel good about being able to play a part in their success!
