If I acknowledge my ratchet-lookin’ toes before anyone else, does that take away from the fact that they look like claws? YES OR YES? OK COOL.
So now that that’s out of the way, I wanted to take a serious moment to again thank everyone who donated in the Lombok fundraiser over the past few days!
Please, please, please head over to my stories to see all the amazing items we were able to buy (in bulk) because of you guys!
We as westerners come to these countries, and take, take, take forgetting to give beyond a hashtagged location.
This earthquake has left 352,793 Indonesians homeless, destroyed 52,812 homes, taken over 400 lives, and left hundreds more injured.
These numbers are heart-breaking, but it’s you all that have put smiles back on their faces in this time of need, so again, to those who donated, we are so grateful.
Tomorrow is also Indonesian Independence Day, so I’m toasting and honoring this country that’s given me refuge for so long. I only hope I can one day repay in a more meaningful way ❤🇮🇩
