On Monday, March 20th, Olivia, Lauren and Dorothy from Peace Love Cupcakes presented a check for $28,000 to staff members of the African Well Fund and Africare in Washington D.C. The 3 high school seniors, with the help of their parents, founded PLC as a non-profit in the 6th grade and have been raising funds for AWF by baking and selling cupcakes in their community in Westford, Masschusetts. While they originally set a goal of raising $15,000 to help fund clean water projects, they soon exceeded their target and decided to aim for $25,000 instead. The donation will be combined with funds from African Well Fund to finance a $65,000 project in southern Senegal which will include the construction of two new borehole wells and the rehabilitation of four wells at six different Health Huts – community health centers where expectant mothers can receive access to care while delivering their children. Access to clean water is critical to support these health centers.
A huge round of applause and sincere thanks to Peace Love Cupcakes for their continuing support and all of their hard work!
