The Start Of Something

So as some know on the ninth of August, 2011, I will be going with Me To We on a trip to Kenya to help the community by building a school and helping to provide the Maasai people with some of the necessities they need to survive. In this endeavour I hope to gain a greater understanding of the world and its problems, and to learn how I can continue to Take Action for change.

To undergo this trip, I need to fund raise approximately $6000.00. I am also hoping to supply one or two bursaries to assist in the cost for local Me to We students to attend the week-long Me to We Leadership Camp held in the summer at UBC.

Please take a look at my fundraising activities page. Your generous support in these activities is greatly appreciated. If you cannot attend, but still wish to support me,  please contact me for any information you require.


  1. Riley,

    I will be following your blog with keen interest and a tremendous sense of pride. Your commitment to this journey and your desire to make a difference in the world are courageous actions at any age, but particularly as a young man. I am very proud of you.

    A wise man and great leader named Franklin Roosevelt once said: The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.

    I'm thinking that this is exactly what you are doing, Riley :)


  2. Hey Riley,
    How is the fundraising going? Are there lots of people signed up for your second bowling night in May?
