Africa: Land of Hope and Joy

Here are a few videos about World Vision.
This first video is a commercial used to raise awareness about child sponsorship opportunities.

Independent musician Scott Phillips shares about his experiences with World Vision. A friend of mine has played on some CD’s of Scott’s and they are excellent.

This last video is a little child welcoming us to explore her Ugandan village with her.

Team World Vision

Team World Vision is a fund raising arm of the organization which uses ordinary people like me, to get ordinary people like you involved in ending poverty and injustice across the world. I have decided to commit the 26.2 miles of my first marathon to the memory of and in honor of the children I have met during my international travels. I can’t remember all of their names, but I have many pictures and stories.

On the right side of my blog there is a widget that will allow you to support me during this race or you can visit this secure page. I have set a goal of raising $2,000 which will help children have a chance at living to become adults across Africa.

    I'm trying one of the FirstGiving sites to raise money for World Vision. Seems to work well. Actually relatively easy to setup. I've got most of the larger details put together for the Kilimanjaro climb.

      That is great Robert. Feel free to comment back with a link to your FirstGiving Site and more info about your trip. That is exciting. One of my best friends is thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail raising money for World Vision –
