This weekend Sam and I attended a benefit dinner for Rising Star Outreach
I am so excited I got to attend this one for 2 reasons.
First, I always miss their events because head quarters are in Provo, Utah.
This time I moved to Utah one week before the event!
The second reason I was excited to go was because they showed my video I made from my first trip to work with the leprosy afflicted in India.
But it doesn't end there! The singer/songwriter of the song I used, Bianca Merkley, was there and performed live during my video!! How cool is that?
She sounded great too!
I was excited to wear my Indian clothes, until I saw this picture! Is it cliche to say these clothes make me look fat!!? I'm so bummed about the turn out. My hair!?! What? I've seen better days. I looked so much better in my mind. :)
Sally Read, President of Rising Star Outreach.
I got started with this organization because of Sally! I was her visiting teacher in New Canaan (before she became the Pres.) You can read about that here.
I am so happy I live closer to this organization. Working with them is so uplifting!
So, who wants to go to India with me??
