150 Children x 1 Year of Vitamins x 2

I usually know whats coming when UPS pulls up to the curb - but today they caught me and the dogs off-guard.Who doesn't like a surprise package?

I dove right in to find this incredibly awesome shirt for Meron from Chelsey - one of my super dope teammates from my most recent Africa trip.

The back says "150" for the 150 children who are provided with a years worth of Vitamin A by the purchase of this shirt (through the FEED Project).

Vitamin A is particularly crucial and essential for survivial. It not only helps prevent kids from losing their eyesight, it also helps malnourished children fight off killer diseases like measles and pneumonia. It's pretty important!

The shirt also celebrates the 45th anniversary of Disneyland's "it's a small world," a ride that champions the idea that, though often a world apart, we are connected to each other.

The front of it has a circle of children from around the world inspired by artist Mary Blair's original, delightful mid-century artwork and evoking Walt Disney's belief that we're united in our love for children and dreams of a better tomorrow

And look at this - she sent one for LH3 too!

This random act of kindness pales in comparison to Chelsey's heart and love for God and His least. This is just one of the bazillion reasons why we love our teammates from our VO Trips.

Thank you Chelsey! We love you and can't wait to see you next week!
