What Matters Warren

UPDATE: What Matters W2 in Africa

Published

on


On December 14th we headed to Africa to meet Herbie Kawuma, a Ugandan performing artist & CEO of Light Up Life Foundations (and recipient of Norway Youth Ambassador 2012).

Together with Herbie we are spreading awareness of and raising money for the children of the ghettos in Uganda. We are headed to the front lines to help them with food, clothes, shelter, school supplies, school fees and more. The children we help may be able to break the cycle of poverty and depression by giving them HOPE.

HOPE that tomorrow will be a better day, HOPE that someone out there really cares and hope for an education that may open doors to future opportunities they never knew were in their reach. TOGETHER WE CAN…just like Herbie’s song explains!

Your generous support is appreciated beyond words. THANK YOU!

    Congratulations on your good work in Uganda. We are so pleased to have a Ugandan artist, Kabonge George Wasswa as one of our artists. A Future Without Poverty, Inc.

Please keep your eyes open for artists (including talented young people) who could benefit from our project: Buy Art Fight Poverty (www.buyartfightpoverty.org) administered by LALO (“et Art Live On”) from beautiful Front Royal, Virginia.

    See you both when you get back. Until then, Godspeed.
