Candace Ganger at the Misadventures of Candyland is raising money today for Joy2theWorld. (Joy2theWorld empowers business women (and their children) in Ghana, Africa by providing micro loans they can invest in their business.) To reach her goal, she needs just one dollar from each of her followers, although bigger donations are certainly welcome!
If you don't follow Candace, please visit her blog today and join. She's talented, funny, gorgeous, and I've never ever read one of her blog posts that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. And while you're there, show your support for her fundraising efforts. It's amazing what just one dollar can do in the Third World. I know. I've been there.
I thought, since Candace is raising money for Ghanan women and children, that I would share a couple of my Peace Corps pictures with you. For those who don't know, I was a volunteer in the Central African Republic from 1994 to 1996. The following pictures are just to give you a glimpse into where I lived, and in another post (that will take more preparation time than I have today :D) I'll show you photos from my project there.
|Can you find me? This was near the end of our intensive 3-month in-country training. See the only guy in a green shirt? I'm two rows back from him, standing behind the girl with a dark baseball cap on.|
|The front of my little mud brick house.|
|Inside, my desk where I worked on my project and my art.|
|Me, cooking in my kitchen. I brought all those spices from home, btw.|
Take it from me, for the cost of two Starbuck's specialty coffees, you can help an African business woman advance in her endeavors. Let's put our dollars together and make a real difference in the world.
