This is my first blog post of what I hope will be many. My name is Michael Skonnard. I’m 14 years old. I’m venturing out to Kenya in July (during my birthday) and given all the sacrifices I’ll have to make, I’m not sure how long I can last out there.
Well, since I’m going out to Africa I decided that it would be perfect timing to do my Eagle Scout project. I thought I could go earn some money to build desks for the school we’re building. Each desk costs about $25 to build and it will seat three children. I intend to earn enough money to build around 25 desks. This means I have to earn about $600.
Here’s what the desks look like:
If you’d like to sponsor one desk for $25, I would totally appreciate it. You could help three African children have a more comfortable classroom by sponsoring a desk.
I’m very excited for my trip in July. I can’t wait until I have the chance to learn what it’s like for the people in Kenya. I want to help the people in Africa and make a difference. I’m looking forward to playing with the Kenyan kids. I’m looking forward to working with the locals to build my desks. I hope I can make this a reality.
