Almost fifteen months ago, our ‘Just Go! Holiday’s” kitchen was built at Kainja Primary School in Malawi.
When we saw the pictures of the kitchen, we decided to go even further on the project and attempt to fundraise £12,200 to feed every single student from the school.
We knew it was a very ambitious goal but still went for it.
Today, we are incredible happy and proud to announce that we, the Just Go! family, have reached our goal!
Thanks to our suppliers, our team, our friends and, of course, our customers, the kids from Kainja Primary School have been fed for a whole year!
I personally visited the school in March and I can tell you, just to see these little faces queuing up for their meals, makes you realise how far, an £1 go in a country like this.
There are as many stories to tell as the many children from the school but for many of them, Mary’s Meals’ is the only meal of the day.
Ndilibe,13, is one of them. He tells us: “I was often missing school because I was too hungry to attend and needed to go looking for food. You worry where the next meal is going to come from. But my next meal will be the porridge. It will be from you, Mary’s Meals, where I will next get to eat.”
I wish all of you had been there to see and feel how thankful these kids are with everybody who helped to reach our goal. From the many customers who donate £1 to the amazing donation from the Circle of Generosity from United States! All of you and every one of you have made this possible!
A MASSIVE THANK TO ALL OF YOU!
I wanted to send my sincere thanks for the Home Depot gift card that I received. Your group promotes something so worthy that we should all strive to do. During the weeks after the storm, I offered help to my neighbors and friends where I could and I saw many acts of kindness. It is truly nice to be at the receiving side of one of these acts. I cannot express my appreciation enough and I will definitely pay it forward.

From all of the families
Dear Circle of Generosity,
Thank you so much for your generosity.
Your donation has helped us immensely and has improved our quality of life and that of our families. We’re especially grateful for this, because without their support we would not have succeeded.
People like you and your foundation are truly making a difference and are an example to follow.
Thank you again, and my God bless you for your generosity.

The $1,000 check that COG sent to Marine Cpl. John Curtain has been put to good use. He is doing better and learning to walk again with his new legs. Quite a brave young guy.
He isn’t focused enough yet to write, but he and his family thank Circle of Generosity for this gift. And so do I. Ellen Levine.
