L.A.P.S. of Love

I couldn't be more excited to share this news with you!

The Fourth Grade students at Freeman School will be celebrating Valentine's Day by sharing their love with students in Burkina Faso, West Africa, by hosting L.A.P.S. for Love. L.A.P.S. for Love stands for Let's All Provide Supplies. The students will be walking four laps around their school yard to raise funds to build another classroom to Therese's former school in Yako, Burkina Faso.

Some items they are hoping to provide include:

A desk shared by two students- $16
Text book containing math, reading, science and history- $24
Temporary wall made of Seiko (woven grass)- $100
Teacher salary for one month- $120

You can sponsor a student per lap, or a flat out donation. If you'd like to contribute, leave a comment on my blog or email me at

The children in the photo are Therese's former classmates. Let's show them that we care!

Note: Parents of Freeman fourth graders- don't worry, you didn't miss anything. You'll be getting all the info soon!

    P.S. I love the picture of Therese knitting. (You seem like an awesome mom & she looks thrilled.)
