Caitlin is my sister. She is wonderful. A beautiful soul.
This is a recap video of her 18th birthday celebration – donated to Greg+Jannelle, YWAM Missionaries working with a number of organizations, using art and media to change the world for good.
Because Caitlin donated her birthday, Greg and Jannelle Althoff received roughly $200.
They are still in need of support. Go here to donate!

6. Amazima Ministries
Amazima Ministries was founded by 19 year-old Katie Davis in 2008. The organization, based out of Brentwood, TN, feeds, educates, and encourages orphaned and vulnerable children and the poor in the country of Uganda. In the Lugandan language, Amazima (uh-mahz-i-muh) means “truth.” Amazima desires to reveal the truth of God’s unconditional love through Jesus Christ to the Ugandan people.

7. For The Silent
For The Silent is a non-profit organization contending – through advocacy, prayer, and fundraising initiatives – for children silenced by sexual exploitation and trafficking.
We are runners, singers, and artists, prayers, advocates, crafters. We are people who truly believe that HOPE comes when we react to the heart of God and act on behalf of the suffering.
We are more concerned with seeing the world changed than being the world changers.
