Cahul’s Inaugural Christmas for Children Charity Ball

This past Thursday, I traveled to Cahul, a city in southern Moldova (about 5 hours south of Balti) to visit another PCV friend of mine, Kate. Kate planned a fundraiser to raise money for a beneficiary five year old beneficiary of her organization, Lilian, who had cerebral palsy and can not walk. Working with her NGO Kate organized a dinner at a restaurant here, called the Flamingo, selling tickets for 300 lei for one or 500 lei for a couple. The event raised over their goal of 800 Euros which was the amount needed for Lilian’s apparatus to walk.

About I think about that every day

I guess this blog will be a really long answer to the generic 'about me' question.
