Postby Nfl Fan » Fri May 07, 2010 2:59 pm

My 20 year old daughter, Shawnte, just landed in DC. Next flight is nonstop to Johannesburg. From there, she and a team of 15 will take a bus into Swaziland where they'll spend the rest of the month at several different 'care points' with many of the 130,000 orphans. Due to the AIDS crisis in that small nation, many of the children are infected and 90% of them will not live to the ripe old age of 30. The disease is utterly destroying that country, and Shawnte will be working with sick, dying, and hungry children.

Any thoughts and prayers for my daughter, her team, and the people of Swaziland would be welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks.

Is that where the Swahili language is from?

Kudos to your daughter for giving her time for something like this. Good vibes and prayers on the way! ;-D

Thanks.

Just got off the phone with her. She's boarding now. She'll be out in the boonies so won't hear from her until June 1. :,-(

Wow. I'm sure you're already very proud, so I won't point out how proud you... yeah.

That is an incredibly selfless and compassionate act. The World needs more like her, NFL. ;-D

Hang in there. Being out of touch for the rest of May won't be easy. Like Lance said, she'll do great and come home safe.

Good for her. Always amazes me the unselfish acts that people perform. Just don't see or hear enough about the good stuff.

You would think that being a Seachickens fan she would have seen enough suffering in her young life... ;-7

Props.

Hope she got people in charge of making her fantasy picks while she is pretty much in a small way saving the world.
