How can we say thank you to everyone who donated during Alissa’s 3rd Annual Action Kivu Fundraiser, contributing $17,570.00 to fund the sewing workshops, education assistance and other programs that empower and engage the women and children of eastern Congo? We’ll start by saying it in as many languages as are spoken by our generous donors! Merci, Grazie, Danke, Dank U, Tack, and Thank You!
Through Handmade by Alissa
, we heard and felt the support and love from 43 states of the U.S., Washington DC and Puerto Rico, Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, Quebec), New Zealand, Australia, UK, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, France and The Netherlands.
From the women and children learning to sew, to embroider, to speak and write Swahili and French, studying math and science and poetry and farming and human rights – a huge ASANTE SANA.
“To leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.”
