Child Sponsorship - Keyri Update #1


My wife, Tina, and I finally decided on a sponsorship program after many hours of researching. We chose Compassion International. We thought that choosing an organization would be the hard part, but it wasn't even close! Choosing a child was absolutely one of the most difficult things we have ever done. Why you may wonder? Because looking at all of those children staring back at us through the computer screen, all of them needing support and love, made us shed some tears. It is like, how do you choose one over another?

Ditch V-Day and Celebrate International ‘Self-Love’ Day instead!


Valentine’s Day has the ability to sweep you off your feet in one romantic heart-fluttering waltz, or leave you standing by the dance floor, feeling alone and dare I say, miserable. Singletons are usually the biggest causality on February 14, but even those of us in relationships can be left feeling bitterly disappointed when those roses (or in my case ‘sunflowers’) get delivered to the desk next door.
