My Shanti Uganda Baby Shower

This past Saturday was my baby shower. Since this is my second child, I didn't need a lot of things so I decided to utilize the opportunity to fund raise for a special charity... The Shanti Uganda Society. 100% of the proceeds from the party goes towards Shanti Uganda's programs aimed to improve the lives of mothers and grandmothers living with HIV/AIDS, improving infant and maternal health and supporting teen girls. I felt this fundraiser was perfect for a baby shower, as some of their…
