Idol Gives Back

Idol Gives Back is tomorrow. Last week they showed a little video clip showing what some of the money from last year's show has done. The video is about homeless children living on the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I was very touched by this video, and I'm so happy that I was able to find it on Youtube. Many of you know that my brother Jason (with the help of my family) has recently started a non profit organization, it is called "Where Love Is" and it is devoted to helping homeless children living on the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He is living there right now. Two of my sisters and one of my brothers are from this city, and came from similar circumstances that this video shows (before being taken in by an orphanage).We can all help make a difference in the lives of these children, please take the time to watch this video and check out whereloveis.org.
Only the first couple minutes are about the children in Ethiopia the rest is just Dolly singing or something.

I'm glad you posted about this. Last year Warren and I gave $100 to the "Idol Gives Back". Not much but still something.I love how your brother has worked so hard with "Where Love Is"...what a neat guy.
Still deciding when to do the School Supply kits for Activity Days...probably in August b/f school starts (summer is already planned).
