CWIC salutes 16-year-old Julianna Marraccino of Mission Viejo High School for her work in Kenya! In February of 2008, Julianna embarked to Kenya with a Saddleback Church to offer support to disadvantaged Kenyan families. While there she was able to offer comfort to orphans, feed families and share her passion for life.
"I had no idea what to expect going into the trip," said Julianna. "But the memories of so many smiling faces waiting to be loved was unbelievable. I feel like a part of me truly belongs to Kenya."
Julianna plans to return to Kenya again in March of 2010 and is accepting donations to send here there. We at CWIC are donating to her cause and are inviting you to do the same! If interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and she will provide you with details.
We challenge more young adults to get involved with a cause: whether it be helping the poor, keeping our oceans clean, or community education - dare to make a difference!!!
If you know of other young heroes in your community we'd love to hear about them. Please send detailed e-mails to email@example.com and we may share their story on DestinationWater.com!!
