Another day, another $12

Just to catch everyone up, MckMama was able to get both villages (Ola Nagele and Garmaam) "adopted" by her readers. Jeff Power and GHNI also did a little push on Twitter to promote the adoption campaign for the second village, Garmaam.

Village # 1 (Ola Nagele) was adopted in @ 3 1/2 - 4 hours

Village # 2 (Garmaam) was adopted in @ 37-45 hours (* exact amount of time unknown since no adoption campaign updates were done during an @ 8 hour timeframe)


MckMama has a new post up that addresses a number of questions about Africa, GHNI, etc. Despite the fact that she has been asked many questions before her trip and during her trip, I find it interesting that she did not answer some of the more difficult questions until both villages were adopted.

As always, I would like to encourage everyone to do their own research before donating to any cause or charity. I think this is even more important when the donations are ongoing. Charity Navigator evaluates over 5,500 charities and is a great resource when you are conducting research about organizations you are considering.
