Trip to Africa?

So for the past week or so I have avoided studying at all costs and instead began to look into service trips and opportunities to go abroad. So I've been talking to people here and a few of us are legit considering making contacts and making our own trip to Kenya or Uganda. Right now we have had a couple thoughts about where to go and what to do. A recent thought by my buddy Will was to bring some joy to the kid's lives at displaced camps. Possibly raising money and getting sponsorships to help build a, as Will puts it, "football pitch". I like it, its different and a gift which can bring the kids a way to leave everything behind and clear their minds a little bitch each day and create a tight knit community. So right now I am emailing people I know, trying to see if anyone knows anyone with an MLS contact or some other sort of contact and go from there. If you guys have any ideas please post them as a comment, we're open to everything!

So Invisible Children just came last night to campus and showed the video of Sunday who is a displaced boy in Uganda. I was really happy with the turnout of the showing, we're thinking about 115-125 people showed up :) i was really excited. Also, I met some awesome people like always with invisible children and like always i want to drop out of school right now and join the roadie team, or leave the country and set up camp in some third world country and do some good work there. I'm up for just about anything tonight and would honestly look into flying away tomorrow morning if the opportunity presented itself..... just need to post something tonight, a nice way to let it all out....

Busy Busy Busy

Hey Everyone!

Sorry, I have been super busy these past few weeks. But it is now November, scary, I know! But my next little research for my non profit is going to be reading about Pol Pot and see if there is a way we can help be a direct influence and try to help cure some of the problems which he had created in Cambodia. Also, I am taking advice on what to do with my life so if you have any ideas let me know!
Also, if anyone has any contacts in Cambodia could you please let me know?
