Africa, my obsession...

I have been to Africa twice. I have been in Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya.
One day I hope to visit and help the pygmies of the Congo.

My family has been involved in humanitarian work for many years.
Our favorite work has been done in Africa. (recently traveled in May 2014)

We have helped build a library for the school children, fixed shelving, helped build a 300 foot rock wall (7 feet tall), donated money to lay the foundation to a boarding school for girls and so much more.

Over the years we have collected eyeglasses, church clothes, school and medical supplies, hygiene kits, dolls, dresses, soccer balls and the list goes on and on.

(I took my creative bag of goodies and the kids loved these Axtell ape dolls)

I was fortunate to hand deliver many of these items to a school that was started in Kenya that is 100% funded by donations. We met the entire boarding school and spent some time with them. It was an experience that has changed all of our lives.

Why am I telling you this?

Because, I am motivated to go back to Africa and do more work.
That is why I create. I am trying to get something off the ground so that I can do much more in Africa. (children's books and comics)

So, if you support my work, you will be supporting a boarding school in Africa where children will have a better shot at a brighter future.
