Town Tip Thursday: Balloon tying trick from friends in Africa

Published

on

A grin will overtake your face when you click on this 2 minute tip showcasing my young friends’ enjoyment of the balloons I shared in Uganda. Learn a clever way to play with balloons more than once! The “TWIST TIE” was introduced to me in Africa by the children of the Maisha House (outside of Kampala, Uganda – the headquarters of Light up Life Foundation) and in the remote village of Bunyade (where I’m currently helping to fund a $25k school construction project).

Watch to see smiling children demonstrate the joy that can be found in playing with a simple balloon over and over again! Remember, WHAT MATTERS is your heart… so if you can, please share some love with these adorable children supported by Light Up Life Foundations and Herbie Kawuma’s dedication to improve the lives of kids in his hometown and beyond (learn more at www.lightuplifefoundations.com or contact me).
