Mudderella Fundraiser

We completed Mudderella and raised $2,590 for Liberian children orphaned by the Ebola Epidemic

In May, 10 members of African Ladies who Brunch participated in Mudderella, a 5-mile muddy obstacle course in New York, to raise funds for two nonprofit organizations in Liberia.

We created an Indiegogo Campaign to support the Franciscan Works Liberian Mission School in Black Tom Town and the More than Me Girls School in Monrovia. Both provide critical schooling and care to children orphaned by the Ebola epidemic and HIV/AIDS:

  • At Franciscan Works $3 provides meals and education for a child per day.
  • For More Than Me $4 provides education, health and social services for each girl child per day.

Our pledge was in honor of Johnson Moore, a 17-year-old student from Francesco Works. Sadly Jonathan lost his life to Ebola while caring for his family.

The funds were send to Liberian in June and are being used to support 3 student boys from Franciscan Works School, and the girl students of More than Me Academy in 2015.

Thanks so much to everyone who supported us to raise these funds!
