Blogging and social media have given me the opportunity to connect with many incredible people, many of whom I have yet to meet in person (but still consider friends). Renee J. Ross is one of those connections. The woman seriously radiates light and love and All the Good Things. So much so, in fact, that I think I want to be her when I grow up.
I recently learned that Renee is fundraising for a mission trip to Ethiopia to help build homes for those with leprosy. I may suck at being Catholic, but I do believe in God and the call to serve. I also believe in fate and incredible coincidence. Last year, very close friends of mine adopted a beautiful son from Adis Ababa in Ethiopia, which just so happens to be the exact community in which Renee will be building mud huts. Total synchronicity, y'all.
Renee's got an April 5 deadline to raise the $3,500 needed to fund her mission trip. Let's help get her there.
