    Heya folks,

    As those of you I'm close to know, I'm participating in GISH this year. It's a 'scavenger hunt' (more like a task list) that Misha Collins started way back when and has since snowballed into something amazing and very, very, VERY Tower-like. A huge number of the tasks that participants must complete are focused on helping their local community and making the world a better place. A portion of all proceeds go to charitable purposes and to fund the non-profit Random Acts (randomacts.org) which makes its mission to go about performing random acts of kindness around the world.

    It's beautiful. I love it so much.

    Anyway, this year one of our tasks is to raise money to help women survivors of genocide in Rwanda by providing a plot of farmland + resources to establish a cooperative farm and market so they can support their children and help their community thrive. The overall goal is to raise $108,000, but my team is just trying to get together $300 $500 of that total. All donations are 100% tax deductible, and 100% of donations go to the cause, so this is 100% a fantastic thing to do.

    If you're interested in helping me hit our goal, please go to the link below and donate! I will personally bake cookies (or do some other act of kindness) for everyone who contributes- just let me know you did!

    Update- we hit our financial goal and expanded it, but I missed the part where we had to have ten individual people who are not on our team donate in order for it to count. We're at 7! :eek

    I contributed, and accept your offer of pretty virtual cookies. ;)

    Back in high school, my extended essay was actually on the UN's lack of action in preventing mass genocide back in the 90's.

    And we're back in business. Also, if we reach that $1000 mark we will be the #2 fundraising team in ALL OF GISH.

    Help me do this, pleeeease. Share the link + my update text on your social media even if you can't donate. I would love you all forever and ever. <3
