Halfway to the Christmas Fundraiser Goal!

Lavender's Sweater

This photo taken a few years ago shows (look closely) how badly Lavender Monyangi's navy blue school sweater is coming apart

This is just a quick reminder that Christmas is quickly approaching and we are hoping to meet our goal to get every one of our Tenderfeet students a new uniform for the 2012 school year.

In Kenya, the school year starts in January, so we want to make sure we help the kids start the school year off on the right foot!

We are currently halfway there, and hope that if you have not yet contributed to our uniform fund, you will consider doing so.  Please click here to use our secure online system.

At this time of year, many of us hope to be able to give a present that really matters.

How wonderful it can be to give a gift that will dramatically affect a child’s life day after day for the next year.

In this case, the gift is a school uniform that includes black leather school shoes, a shirt, sweater, and trousers.

Such a uniform is required of every student in Kenya, and Tenderfeet has received threats in the past from strict educational officers that the school would be shut down if our students weren’t wearing uniforms.

Since our students are too poor to afford their own, we raise funds every year to purchase a new uniform for them. That same uniform will be worn by the child the whole year.

As mentioned in last month’s article, our team goes to great lengths to stretch every penny and get the most uniforms for the donations we receive.

Last year

To make every donation go as far as possible, materials are purchased in bulk and the local tailors and sweater makers are employed that give us the best rates.

For only $25, you can purchase a full uniform for a younger child. $35 will purchase a uniform for an older child. 100% of your donation will be used for the uniforms, the Tenderfeet Foundation deducts no overhead.
