Wowzers! You guys are amazing. Just a few days ago we launched our first project – raising money to purchase medical supplies for orphanages in Burundi. And guess what??? Within 48 hours we met and exceeded our goal of $500.
Thanks to all you who gave and shared our project on social media, we will be sending a check to International Child Foundation for $550. They are the agency who is taking a team of doctors this fall into Burundi to evaluate children living in shelters.
In a nation like Burundi, that money will go a long way. Do you like pictures? We love pictures. Here are a few of Burundi so you can see what it is like there.
Burundi is an absolutely beautiful country filled with amazing people. The people there work hard at improving their country and strengthening their communities. The Glow Campaign is really happy to be able to come alongside them and help in this way.
Things will be a bit quiet around here for the month of July. We will be traveling with our families for a bit, swimming, eating too many snow cones… you know. Summer stuff.
But don’t you worry guys. We will be back in August. We promise.
Have a good rest of the summer and THANK YOU again for supporting us!

Hey there! We are two friends who have decided to start a charity to help brighten the future of kids around the world. You can get the full scoop here, but we can sum it up for you. Two girls + one desire to help = The Glow Campaign!
a Glow Campaign meeting
Several times a year we will pick a new project to help raise funds and awareness for. This summer…we are setting our sights on Africa! Our Summer 2014 project is raising funds for medical supplies for orphanages in Burundi.
Burundi is a small nation in central Africa. Currently there are about 610,000 orphans living in Burundi. According to the WHO, about 1 in 10 children there will die before their 10th birthday. Turns out a lot of kids around the world die from causes that are preventable. This fall there is a team of doctors going to shelters in Burundi to provide medical examinations and care for these kids.
Our goal is to raise $500 to help purchase medical supplies for the shelters. You know. Bandaids, medicine and stuff.
Unfortunately, our allowance money doesn’t quite cover that so we need your help. Would you consider donating to our campaign and helping us give the gift of health care to kids in Burundi?
