Ellie’s Run for Africa

Ellie Ambrose was featured in our cover story in the January/February 2012 issue of Girlz 4 Christ Magazine. Each year in May, Ellie hosts a run in Nashville, and the funds raised from this event go to help children in Africa.

This year, the Girlz 4 Christ editor, Jessica Lippe, has agreed to become a “Hero” sponsor of Ellie’s Run for Africa. This means that she’ll be promoting Ellie’s Run and raising money that will help African children get fed and educated as a way to break the cycle of poverty. Now, we’re inviting you to help us out! 
You can find out more about Jessica’s Hero Fundraiser by going here:  http://www.elliesrun.org/hero/jessica-lippe. Donating any amount will make a HUGE difference in the lives of children in Africa. We’ve already raised $29- enough to pay a teacher’s salary for one day in Africa. We think it would be really cool if all the Girlz 4 Christ readers could partner together and contribute at least $138 to this cause- that would be enough to feed one child in Africa for an entire school year! 
Make a difference in the lives of African children today- visit  http://www.elliesrun.org/hero/jessica-lippe  and click the “Donate Now” button!
