It’s time for another acknowledgment that we’re all going through a season the likes of which we have never experienced.
Even through the national emergencies of 9/11 and the Great Recession of 2008, we could still get together. We could still have our friends over for dinner, let a houseguest come to visit, or go to a coffee shop with a close friend. Now, when at the very least we want to give someone a hug, we can’t. In this time, we are so proud of you all who support Zozu Project. You are some of the most generous, hopeful, and helpful people we know. Here, we want to highlight some of the wonderful things you have been up to that we have taken note of:
• We follow a bunch of you on Instagram and Facebook. You have posted so many posts of gratitude, joy, and creativity. One of our sponsors made a post of ten things she found joy in over the week. It made us smile and warmed our hearts in a powerful way.
• We got an email from another sponsor highlighting a special matching campaign that we could get in on as an organization. It’s so cool that you’re thinking of the kids and asking the question “How can we help?” Seeing people take on a team mindset is motivating.
• Your comments on the stories we share on Facebook and Instagram have been so encouraging. Every “” and “Good to know!” has mattered to us and reminded us that we are a team working together for good.
• We have received a few emails that say you’re praying for the families in Arua. The edge-of-disaster feeling some of us are experiencing right now? That’s their everyday experience. On their behalf, thank you for lifting the children up. Now is a great time to get on the prayer newsletter. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
As always we will keep you up-to-date with first-hand news as we receive it from the staff in Uganda. Things continue to change by the day.
Thank you so much for sticking with us and the kids, financially, relationally, and in prayer. We’re so glad to be in this with you. You are such examples of joy in the midst of trial, generosity in the midst of scarcity, and hope in the midst of change. Thank you.
The Zozu Team, Elsie, Elaine, and Mick
