[12/31/2016] I apologize for being MIA for the entire month of December.. The first half of the month was mad finals prepping, whereas the latter half was fully occupied by my seasonal job. Overall, it was a pretty crazy month!
But on this last day of the year, I thought I’d make a quick post to wish you all a very happy new year! And finally wrap up my Gift of Giving fundraiser on the blog.
In the month of November, we raised $1102 together for the children of South Sudan! It was not only the best celebration for my 18th birthday, but more importantly, a celebration of transformed lives for the South Sudanese children. I wholeheartedly thank you for your immense support and generous donations throughout my fundraiser. It wasn’t just once or twice when I felt discouragement or disappointment, but the success and meaning at the end of it far outweighs the negatives. You all humbled and inspired me with your willingness to give and your compassion. And for that, I am truly grateful.
Praise the Lord for all His grace and blessings in 2016!
To end this short and sweet post.. Happy 2017! May the new year ahead be full of joy and wonders.
