Today I had the opportunity to have lunch with Mrs. Cindi Camp and thank her for her generous donation that provided the last minute funding we needed to get the medical donations to Ghana. None of this would be possible without so many people that are either willing to donate funds, medical supplies or a helping hand to pack boxes.
Mrs. Camp has offered to help Hearts for Hearts in a couple of different ways that we are in the process of looking into and working on. She is going to see if there are better and more efficient ways to ship medical supplies to the countries than what we had to endure on the last trip to Ghana. If we can find a better way to get the supplies to the areas that need them sooner it means we could possibly ship a few times a year instead of only once. This would be a really good thing.
We also discussed the various ways to get medical supplies donated and she asked me if I would be willing to present to Western Digital in Irvine, CA to discuss the foundation. Mrs. Camp said that Western Digital works with various 501(c)(3) nonprofits every year and if the board determines that Hearts for Hearts is a good fit they might be able to do a supply drive for us! This would certainly mean that we would have enough supplies that we could send them a few times a year! Next step, I need to get working on a presentation right away!
I am so grateful that there are people in my life that are not only willing to help me but more importantly help others. This first year of Hearts for Hearts has demonstrated how even the simplest things can make a huge difference to others. The experience I had in Ghana volunteering this summer has inspired me to try to do more.
