Pancakes for Uganda

April 23rd, 2007

Download Pancakes for Uganda flyer!
Pancakes taste good, especially for dinner. Pancakes taste even better when they are made, purchased, and eaten for a good cause!
The cause: supporting Colin & Kelly’s efforts to assist children affected by HIV/AIDS in Mbale, Uganda.
Their travel costs are covered, so ALL of the proceeds from the pancake dinner extravaganza will be used to:
1. support the sustainable agriculture project (TASO Mbale Smallholder Poultry Project for Vulnerable Youth), 2. assist child-headed families with school fees
3. assist John Busolo with his coffee project for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS
4. purchase necessities (clothes, foam mattresses, school supplies, cooking utensils, soap, bicycle repairs, etc.) for child-headed families
5. assist poultry project participants with vaccinations and other project needs
Also, 8′X 10′ & 4′X 6′ Photography Prints (Uganda 2006) will be sold for the cause.
We hope to see you on Friday night, May 4th, at the Kent Presbyterian Church 5pm – 8pm! Adult admission is $5 all-you-can-eat, and children eat free! Sausage, coffee, juice, syrup, butter, laughter, and water will also be served.
Bring everyone you know! And if you’re interested in volunteering to help make and/or serve pancakes, please contact Colin at

Many thanks to all of the kind individuals that attended the presentation yesterday.
I am truly grateful to the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland for allowing me to use their beautiful space for the presentation. The individuals at the Taskforce are remarkable…they touch lives daily. I credit the teachers I had at the Taskforce with inspiring and motivating me to work towards a goal that should be held by all of humanity: making the world a safer, kinder, more livable place for people with HIV/AIDS and preventing the spread of HIV through comprehensive, evidence-based prevention. THANK YOU!
On May 13, I’m going back to Uganda with my boyfriend, Colin McEwen. We are currently raising money for all of the families that participated in the poultry project last summer. Some of the children need school fees, others need school supplies – the needs lists are endless. We plan on having a pancake breakfast fundraiser in Kent, Ohio sometime this month…we’ll post the details on the blog. I am also selling 8 x 10 prints of the photos I took last summer; many appear on the blog. If you’re interested in purchasing a particular photo, contact me at: or All the proceeds go to the Ugandan children affected by HIV/AIDS and their caregivers.
Again, thanks to all the people that took time out of their busy days to attend the presentation. And special thanks to my mom, dad, grandma, and sister who helped me so much yesterday!
