Day 226: How Much $ Does it Take to Start an Shelter in Uganda? Do you Have to Be Oprah?

Shelter in Uganda - 365give
Share Happiness!

Last night I attended a fundraiser for the Akin Afrika Foundation that is building a shelter in Uganda. This foundation and shelter in Uganda has been started by a remarkable women by the name of Chelsea Peters. Chelsea and her partner Morris have started on a journey that will allow their foundation to take children off the streets of Lira, Uganda and give them a roof over their heads, food, water, cloths and most importantly hope for their future. I did a post on her mission (Day 209) just a few weeks ago and I wanted to continue to support her in any way I could . Here is my interview with Chelsea Peters. She is changing the world one day and truly one child at a time. Here is her story.

Day 226: Give 226


Last night Chelsea raised $4137.00 for her foundation. Friends and family came to support her inspirational work. To date, in just a few weeks, Chelsea has raised enough money to get the shelter up and running. But this is just the beginning. Operating costs will top $20,000 a year to take care of these children and she will need our help to feed, cloth and educate the children.


How can you help Chelsea and the Atkin Afrika Foundation?  Donate. Its that easy. Whether it’s $10 or $100 every penny towards reaching her goal will make her dream come true. We all have a dream – let’s help Chelsea realize hers. She is doing something many of us would never even consider because it seems impossible. She is making the impossible happen right now and she needs us today!

Time Commitment: 2 hours

Cost: $25.00 to attend the event

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
