Stories told through the Agee's blog continue to inspire me. Lucky enough to see this love in action in person, Cheryl and Jeff returned home from South Africa viewing life through a different lens. Already a generous family, they are now even more passionate about making a difference. I am so thankful that a simple salsa sale will allow you to help them as well. Thanks so much, Salsa Mama friends!! Let's give hope to these children, feed them and nurture them.
Please take a few minutes to read Cheryl's words below and to visit the Agee's blog. It's emotional, it's inspiring, and yes, even difficult to read. I have to admit, this whole project has shaken me up in many ways. Seeing Cheryl's pictures for the first time brought waves of tears to my eyes as I allowed myself to truly process the stories she was telling me. We all have SO MUCH while some children in the world are THRILLED to get a fresh orange slice with their one meal a day at the soup club.
I know that we are bombarded daily with requests for donations, with our own hardships, and there are plenty of people in our own zip code who desperately need help. I have chosen this sale for this population at this time because, well... it's right in my heart. If you've read this far, it may be right in your heart too. And by the way, you don't even need to buy salsa to support this cause. The Oceans of Mercy website is just a click away!
Below are Cheryl's own words about her trip and some inspiring pictures of the work they did.
