So many of you helped bring Light to the situation in Malawi -- thank you.
Over the last several weeks the world has focused on this small African nation where a couple was sentenced to 14 years hard labor for the "crime" of homosexuality. After worldwide outrage the decision was overturned and the couple is now free!
It is my hope that this is just the beginning of our global community coming together to bring justice to Malawi.
Seven years ago I could not locate Malawi on a map. Since then, this small African nation has become the center of my world -- capturing my heart and transforming my life. Let me tell you how.
It can be overwhelming at times knowing that Malawi is home to over two million orphans and vulnerable children due to HIV-AIDS and extreme poverty. The tragedy that exists there, with children left to raise other children, is very real.
Despite the unimaginable conditions, there is a hope and a determination in the people of Malawi that is nothing short of contagious. Every trip to Malawi I leave feeling more inspired by the progress and more hopeful than before.
With the smallest actions, I have witnessed enormous change -- and that's why I'm inviting you to continue to help me transform Malawi.
Watch the video of the transformation beginning in Malawi:
The construction of the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls is just one example of the life changing projects happening right now in Malawi.
I am asking you to partner with me. I know that, together, we will raise Malawi.
Thank you for your support.
