I have often written about the needs of the poor and the sick in Kenya and invited people to contribute funds to the various causes I write about and support. Today I ask a different favour.
I've been sponsoring a young man in Kenya to get his medical diploma from Kisii University. I've tried for several years to find him a sponsor but no one else would step in and help him. I'm happy to report that he is almost finished his education but unfortunately I just cannot help him anymore. My heart breaks over this as he is very near to completion. He needs a bit more help to finish his final year and will soon need to go on what they call an attachment where he goes out in the field for a practical placement. He will need funds for his tuition, his living expenses, travel and graduation costs.
In order to try and help him with this latest challenge, I have created a fundraising page on the gofundme site where I have explained Elvis' story. I've also created a button on my side bar to create awareness of his need.
I am asking if you will help me share Elvis' story on your blog or on your Facebook page, through Twitter or any of your other social media platforms. You can share the story by clicking on the 'gofundme' button on the upper right of my blog where you will find a way to do that. At the very bottom of the page, you will see several button that will help you share on Facebook and others social sites. You will also see a small button called "embed". If you click on that you will find the code to post a gofundme widget about Elvis on your site or blog.
I am not asking you for donations (though I won't discourage you if you feel you want to help). I am asking you to help us spread the word of the need, or IF YOU KNOW how to raise the needed funds, please let me hear from you!
Thank you so much for your time.
