I want to say a huge thank you to the wonderful Jan Maltby, a friend of my mothers, who has heard all about my adventures in Tanzania and the amazing people I met there. Over the past few months, she has been raising money for the orphanage through her knitting business, Artijan. She is a talented knitter and has used her skills to raise money for our wonderful children and we couldn't be more grateful. She is naming The Small Things as her 'good cause' for the year and, for each item she sells, is donating one pound. This is an incredible gesture and we are very thankful for your selflessness and generosity. Thank you for caring about our kids.
None of these people have ever met the kids of Nkoaranga Orphanage or the patients of Nkoaranga Hospital but they all want to help them and I think this is remarkable. It shows what generous and caring people there are in the world and it makes me proud of the people I know.
So, to all those people who have helped the kids, donated to one of our projects, listened to our stories and read our blogs, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. It's people like you who give me faith in humanity.
Here's some videos of the kids to enjoy...
