What is 129? Team Ethiopia Members!

THIS IS HOW WE'RE FEELING!!!!





Go on, look at that sidebar, impressed? I'm honored to know so many generous, lovely people. It is beyond amazing to me to see what you've been able to do in such a short time.



You have no idea what this gift means, actually you do, and that's why you've stepped up and said, "yes, two wells."



We are so close, don't want to say how close, but I can taste it! We need a little bit more.... and then we're there!

This is what Team Ethiopia WILL be doing! *Video Update* Re:Well?????


Twestival Drill Day 4 - Well Complete from charity: water in Ethiopia from charity: water on Vimeo.

Is it me or do we actually look alike???? I think we look alike! LOVE THAT!

So, here's the deal Team Ethiopia. The numbers are in as of today.

I'm taking a vote - Do you want to know the number as of today, or do you want more stupid videos (by me) to keep pushing through other resources until we reach our second well??

****Edited version - no voting, it's been decided, we're going for TWO****

Did you know, most companies will MATCH any donation you give. Ask your employer if they do, that could really boost our numbers.

I love all of your efforts. You've done an AMAZING job. EVERY single one of you who have donated will save lives. Go Team Ethiopia! Don't forget, these are not my wells, they're OUR WELLS. And everyone on the team will be getting something to signify our team effort within the next month, or after we reach our goal! ;)

Happy Easter - Jesus, THANK YOU for saving US!

Thanks Emily for sharing this to us all...



Happy Easter and a fun vacation video!

We went on vacation and I have tons of pictures to make a slideshow, but in the meantime, enjoy my two little people ripping up the Latino dance club "Bolero's." As I'm sure you can imagine, they stole the show when they were up there!

Edited: 105 members of Team Ethiopia and climbing!


I've decided due to some tragic news of the passing of my best friends brother and this being Easter weekend that I'll hold off until next week for the big announcement.


Plus, people are STILL donating and I want the highest number. The last number I rec'd was on 4/6/09 - and that total was only as of 4/2/09!


So to unvail the suspense a bit, we're close to TWO wells. Yes, TWO wells. That is ONLY because of all of you and spreading the word.


Bless you all, let's try to do a final push and get that second well! This is beyond my wildest dreams. There is POWER in numbers, and God has blessed me with so many wonderful and generous friends! Just look at that sidebar - yikes!

You think that's a big list??? Just wait!

Team Ethiopia is making waves and moving mountains. Let's keep getting the word out!!

The team list on the sidebar is nothing compared to the updated list charity:water sent me. I'll update it over the weekend. Also, my videographer (MP) and I have an announcement video planned to produce over the weekend when we return (I hope.)

And also, all member of Team Ethiopia will be getting a little something in the mail in about a month or so!!!!

Go Team!
