Benson got tagged in the ice bucket challenge.
We didn’t realize it was for ALS. (He was tagged early on, before it became like the biggest news story since Jesus, and the dude who tagged him wasn’t clear, so there you go.)
So instead of donating to an ALS charity, Benson bought two goats and a mosquito net for some children in Rwanda.
Today, we received a thank-you letter from a child who received one of the goats:
“…It was a really surprise when they gave me a goat that you sent to me when you didn’t even know my names.
I am called Maneza…You have become my best friend.”
And suddenly the color I paint my kitchen cabinets isn’t so important anymore.
(Though I’m still excited about having my kitchen cabinets painted and will likely blog about it in the next few weeks.)
