Donation Drive Milestones: Giveaways and Wild & Crazy Acts of Awesomeness

Posted on August 21st, by changersadmin in Uncategorized. 1 Comment

Today we’re doing a donation drive for the villages of Magaladhi and Garmaam that we adopted this summer during our Changers of Commerce trip with GHNI to Ethiopia to learn about their Transformational Community Development work in some of the world’s poorest villages.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help the villages complete their water projects and continue to elevate themselves to better lives, build sustainable agriculture and income, and to support the work our GHNI brothers, Jeff, Alemayu, Zerihun and Lemi are doing on a daily basis to help create this sustainability.
