Mack and Brady Update
Our friends Mack and Brady (6th and 7th grade) have been in Kenya for the last few months. They are having an amazing time, and have started a fundraising campaign to raise money to help protect rhino and elephants. Brady and Mack met with local women to design their own original bracelets, key chains, and animal figures to sell, with all of the profits from the sales of the products going directly to help Borana Conservancy's efforts to save the rhino and elephants. (The sale of the items also helps the local women earn a living.) If you want to learn more about Brady and Mack's adventures and their fundraising campaign, visit their website, crashandherd.com. (Crash means a group of rhino and Herd means a group of elephants.)

 

Have a wonderful summer and read, read, read and explore, explore, explore!
