Charity matters > this night we will work hand to hand with a local association called Watoto Wa Baraka which means ‘children of blessings’ in Swahili. They have founded two orphanages in Kenya and are now trying to build a school in a rural part of the country. Just know that the entrance benefits will go to them and that if you’re willing to give more, you are welcome. www.africanorphanage.org
