SAVE+WATER HIGH TEA EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS

August 27, 2013

Kristina Williams (below, in the white hat) was unsure how she could take part in the SAVE+WATER Campaign from the time it was launched at her church, The Gathering Place. Providentially, it was during a sleepless night a few weeks back while battling an illness that her idea came. A High Tea!

On Saturday, Kristina hosted her Tea and welcome a few dozen women to her home, charging $10 each. Kristina, her two daughters, and several friends donated their time and resources to host this amazing event and donated the $600 raised to the SAVE+WATER Campaign. Reflecting on the experience, Kristina said,

“It was amazing to work with my two daughters to show them what we could do with just a little bit of effort.”

The ultimate goal of our campaigns is the impact we are able to make in the lives of the Arsi Oromo people. When we can provide a mother and daughter, and friends, the opportunity to serve with one another, it is icing on the cake. Or in this case, crumpets!
