Water Wings 2017

Yesterday's WATER WINGS event with all its many tentacles raised close to $3,800 for our water project for the Shining Hope Girls Academy/SHOFCO via our partnership w/ H2O for Life plus additional funds for Bead for Life to further support African women and their children. To supplement our fundraising I will now write and have the kids write letters to local politicians and businesses to supplement our fundraising! I am VERY proud of our 3rd grade Ubuntu kids and their families, Jenna Blackman and the entire HCS community/Ubuntu! A good time was had by all!
