      Round Up For Charity | The O’Brien School

      Round Up For Charity | The O’Brien School

      In November 2016, we're supporting a charity very near and dear to our hearts. While on vacation in Tanzania in 2006, a friend unexpectedly saw a need she could not ignore. Her family vacation turned into her life's calling - to build a school for the children of a small and impoverished village halfway around the world. She got to work.


      One year later, The O’Brien School in Tanzania opened to 150 students offering the only educational opportunity for children in their village. The school provides an alternative for young girls who are otherwise married off as early as 12 years old. The school also offers village women vocational training in crafts and jewelry allowing them their first opportunity for independence. It costs about $1000 per year to sponsor a young girl  for secondary school and that includes room, board, books and a little money for incidentals.

      We are so proud of our friend who saw a need and found a way to make a difference. At the end of the day, that's what it's all about. Although we normally support charities in our community, we know there is need all over the world and we're happy to make a difference wherever we can!
