Happy New Year!

We have raised an additional $440 through offline donations for Watering Farms and are now just $156 shy of funding the water tank for Marcia.

Additionally, we have received a generous gift of $1,000 in matching funds toward our next two water tanks for whom we have recipients waiting.

We are so thankful to our donors and for your continued support, and we wish you a year filled with health and abundance.
