A plea for support

Dawgman.com would like to pass along this message from Washington Husky Anthony Kelley and his wife Tonya. Last year, they brought the iintombi dancers, a troupe Anthony met while visiting South Africa, to Seattle on a goodwill tour of the area.

Here is their message.

"We have been faced with ongoing trials and tribulations with our efforts of bringing the dance troupe back to Seattle, WA for a 2nd educational/cultural exchange.

"We experienced difficulties with the approval of the troupe's visas. However we continued to stay focused; we are pleased to say their visas have FINALLY been approved!! Unfortunately the rates that were quoted for airfare changed within a couple of days so we are faced with yet another obstacle, we are $2,000.00 shy of the funds needed to cover travel expenses.

"We are sending out a plea for support.

"We are working on a cultural exchange between the South African Youth & a group of Palestinian Youth that will be on tour in Seattle, WA in July."

A helping hand
a willing heart
a simple gesture on someone's part.
sometimes that's all it takes
what a difference it will make.
