Today is Bobby McGraw’s birthday, but he’s not asking for a new iPhone (at least not from us!). Instead, he is asking his friends and family to help him respond to his experience last week in Kenya on a CFA Impact Trip. Bobby wrote a fantastic blog postabout his experience – please check out his story and photos at his site here:
If you don’t get a chance to read his post, here’s the gist. Bobby saw firsthand in Kenya the difference it makes for a Kenyan parent to live 25 years instead of 2-5 years. Each one of those extra years of life is another year to work to support a family, raise a child at home, and provide education and a future for the next generation.
Bobby wants his friends and family to celebrate his birthday by helping to add years to the lives of those parents in Kenya. What an amazing example of finding a way where we are to help people who truly need it!
We hope his story inspires you, too. What can you do – right where you are, with the people you are around – to make a difference in Kenya? It doesn’t take much, but we would love your help…
