In fundraising news, we held the first annual Simply Love Fun Walk/5k, Bake Sale and Craft Fair on May 11th. I included some pictures below. My great friend, Bobi, came out to raise both awareness about malaria and money to buy mosquito nets for the southern region (Kembata tribe) of Ethiopia. This is where Aidan and two of her three girls, Ella and Faith, were born. I also had another good friend, Hiwot, there. She is from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and made injera (complete with lentils and shirro) and coffee for people to sample. All and all, it was a great day and we raised around $3,500! Together with our salsa sales and donations page, we've raised just under $6,000!!! Praise God! Next up is our Simply Love Zumbathon on June 28th.
