Saturday May 6th we held a party at World Concern HQ to celebrate Baron's birthday and raise money for mosquito nets. Our good friend Julie helped organize a silent auction, we had games for the kids (there are lots of kids!) and everyone had a chance to snack, chat and give.
Another good friend Mindy Lee talked about her experience working with World Concern, the work they are doing is inspiring. We had a raise the paddle where folks generously gave and the sweetest part was the kids waiting for the amount to get to $2 so they could raise their paddle (actually a fly swatter!) and give. I didn't take a lot of photos as I was a little preoccupied running and around a chatting with friends. What an amazing event to celebrate and help others. Thank you to all of you who supported this cause writing encouragement and donating money. What an amazing experience. Very proud of our son Baron and our community of friends for thinking of others. And Thank you to World Concern for the work you do around the world and making it possible for a kid to realize a dream of helping others. Our hearts are full. - Gabe & Ash
