An Elon alumni reached out to our group asking if we could help volunteer for a fundraising event she was holding to support the non-profit she started, Malaika for Life. Founded in 2009 by malaria survivor Kristen Kenney, Malaika For Life is a grassroots movement to fight malaria through medical relief, advocacy, education and supporting social enterprise in Africa. The Bridges LAdies were more than happy to step up and volunteer. Directors J, Adam and Jen, came along as well to support. We sold many of the bracelets created by the Tanzanian women to support the cause and met some great people in the process.
