It’s impossible to overstate the impact that Dr. David Ross Russell – father of our Founder, Bekka – had on The Small Things over the years, and how much of a difference his legacy continues to make to the children and families in Nkoaranga, Tanzania. Each year, Dorothy Goldberg – TST board member – would celebrate her birthday together with her husband David, and so she decided that this year that she would host an online event as part of our Connection Campaign instead. As well as honoring David’s commitment to The Small Things, we were also joined by his friends, family and colleagues, who shared how he impacted their lives also.
David’s final wish was that his legacy be used to support The Small Things, and this event in his memory raised an incredible $5,513 – a contribution that will have such an impact on the ground in Tanzania. You can watch the event below, or support TST in David’s memory here.
