As many of you know, I'm traveling to Africa next month with my aunt, Donna Rasin-Waters, a psychologist and one of the most generous people I know. Before I meet her there, she will be traveling to Zimbabwe to lead a summit designed to help a group of volunteer counselors known as "Aunties" reach and empower the girls in their care. On my last trip to Zimbabwe I had the pleasure of meeting some of the wonderful Aunties and was struck by their warmth and their passion for helping the girls in their communities, many of whom have experienced trauma in their lives and need a safe place and a caring adult to help them regain their strength and the confidence to find their voice again. My aunt's goal is to give these Aunties the tools they need to reach these girls and help them develop into the strong women they have the potential to be.

I am trying to raise funds so that every Auntie can attend this summit. Please consider donating to this wonderful cause... every dollar helps!
