How 33 people WILL educate every child on earth
"This guy has a plan. And that plan includes every child on earth finally having access to education. This idea has been a long time coming, and is the biggest thing to hit fundraising for 20 years. Get ready to look at your morning coffee in a whole new light."
Watch this video! Seriously - watch it!
Taylor is my hero! I've never met him but I am so inspired by him and the work he is doing to inspire others. Building a school in Kenya with Change Heroes was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. It definitely didn't happen within hours or even overnight, like this video insinuates but with the help of some incredibly generous donors and a little persistence, I was able to motivate enough people to join me in building a school. I led a campaign that raised $10,300 for a school that has been built in Kenya by Free the Children. It is a small one-room school house but it will help educate over 1000 kids over the next 30 years. Why am I telling you, because by sharing my story, perhaps I will inspire someone else to build a school as well.
My kids are very lucky. They attend really amazing schools. I searched pretty well every school in Vancouver to find the school that was the perfect fit for my son. My kids couldn't be more fortunate than to receive the education they are getting. Lots of kids in the world don't get the opportunity for even a basic education and with a little effort we can change that. In a world where we spend most of our time complaining about what we don't have and what we can't have and what we wish we had, it is nice to take time to appreciate what we do have. The best way to do that is to give. By giving, we are saying "I can", not "I can't" or "I want" or "I need" but just "I can". I can improve the lives of children. I can change the world. I can make a difference. I can!
Now it is time to make a donation, because I can!
