Salutations! I know that my portion of the blog has been silent for the last two months. But, that will not happen again. If you check just below this blog entry, you can enter your Email address and receive updates every time there is a new one. It is really easy to do and actually helps us out a lot. The more, the absolute merrier. Please spread the word to your fiends and anybody else that you think would be interested in our cause. I am learning that the nonprofit world really focuses on the number of hits and readers your site gets. Your help would be incredibly helpful and not too hard!

Woodside Priory’s Daraja Club is working on a way that they can also contribute, so maybe that ammount will not be quite so hard to raise!!!
