On January 12, the GVN team gathered around our local policeman for our annual Grand Prize Draw! All our 2011 hosts who had raised more than $500 were entered into the Draw and the winner was to win an expense-paid trip to Kenya or Peru. It was an exciting moment when our policeman pulled out the name and announced the 2011 Grand Prize winner...
Adrienne Matheson! A huge congratulations from all the ESTC team to Adrienne!
Adrienne is from New Zealand and hosted her third ESTC event in 2011. She has chosen to join our Distribution Trip to Kenya this May and is hoping to stay on to volunteer after the trip.
Adrienne does a lot of volunteer work in her community and also works as a Nanny. Her interests include making cards and other crafts, as well as photography. We're already looking forward to seeing the photos that Adrienne will be taking in Kenya!
Here are a few words from Adrienne:
About three years ago I volunteered for six weeks in Kenya with GVN and every year since I have been involved with ESTC. I am beyond excited to return to Kenya on the distribution trip.
Every day is a good day to live life to the fullest and help others do the same.
Thank you GVN. Kenya here I come!" ~ Adrienne.
Congratulations once again Adrienne!
~ Eliza and the ESTC team
