Give the Gift of Light: Help me and imagine1day bring solar energy to Ethiopia

Dear Friends & Family,

I’m writing to ask for your support with a cause that I am personally passionate about: building leaders in this world. It starts in our own communities and extends to our global communities.

In partnership with the non-profit organization, imagine1day, our goal is that in 30 days, we will raise $13 for each person in the Abada Community in Ethiopia (population ~2,000) to fund a solar energy system that will fuel their village 365 days a year.

Electricity is one of the biggest impediments to progress and education in Africa. Today, in the Abada village, there is no electricity. This solar system is one of its kind to be brought to Ethiopia, and will be life-changing. With your help, we will be a catalyst for advancement.

My intention is to raise $5,000 to help give kids access to the Internet to aid their education, generate electricity for adult workforce training, and provide street lights to create a safe community for women and children. Light can empower a life.

Please consider donating $13 or more to help us give the gift of light.

Namaste.
“The inner light in me honors the inner light in you.”
