Today is a very exciting day for three “World Changers” at donorworx. Regional Manger Kimberly Harkins, Campaign Leader: Natasha Sood and Fundraiser Tina Carey began their journey on a field trip to visit Save the Children’s US programming in Arizona, specifically the Navajo Nation.
During the trip, donorworx staff will have a chance to observe the Sponsorship programs which they help support, both in a school and home setting as well as interact with the children benefiting directly. In addition, they will meet with various educators and local Navajo people and have the opportunity to learn more about the Navajo culture.
