My friend Meneika (who I totally now claim as my own friend but who originated as a friend of my sister-in-law), will be taking a trip to Senegal through her work at the YMCA. “The purpose of the program and trip are to advance global youth leadership development through experiences that lead to strengthened cultural competencies, an increased commitment to volunteerism, and a deeper connection to the Y’s global mission (from YMCA website). Meneika is an amazing person and I can’t think of a better person to represent the YMCA on such an endeavor. In order to travel, Meneika had to volunteer and fundraise to pay for her trip. So, my 33rd act of kindness was making a small donation towards her trip. Good luck Meneika!!
