So this year, I would like to do something different! Instead of gifts, I am asking that everyone make a donation to my favorite charity, Walk for Wells! I am hoping to raise $2300 in honor of my 23rd birthday! Please visit the link www.https://jhbwalkforwells.com/donate/ to donate via PayPal. There is an option to “Add special instructions to the seller”. Please specify “Ope’s Birthday” in this section to help me keep track of my goal! (An example is provided below.) Thanks in advance for joining me in this endeavor. Together we will give the gift of water to a community in need!
