What is the Power of 100 People Working Together on Any
Project in the World to Create Positive Change?
PAY IT FORWARD AWARD
On February 7, 2018, 100 Humanitarians International was featured on KUTV as the recipients of the Mountain American Pay it Forward award. We met at And Sew On where the filming took place, and we talked about the underwear pattern that Marissa Waldrop created. They then joined us at a sew-a-thon, where we were able to assemble 67 pairs of underwear in one day for the rescue center in Kenya we are supporting. They also donated $500 to us, and we used the funds for 50 Days for Girls kits that we had made and distributed in Kenya.
In the Fall of 2017, Moses and Heidi met Alex Boye at a concert, and after talking for a while, Alex invited Moses to be a part of his video Promised Land, which debuted on December 27, 2917. We met up on October 22nd and spent the day filming, including going downtown and walking a potbelly pig around Temple Square in Salt Lake City. We had a lot of interest…in the pig! Amazingly, no one seemed phased by two Africans wearing traditional Maasai clothing. We ended up at A Taste of Kenya, the fundraising event we hosted that night at Club 90, and wrapped up filming. It was a really fun day!
In the Fall of 2017, we created a documentary about 100 Humanitarians International on an expedition. We talked about the power of 100 people working together, the Emparnat Cultural Center, and how we have grown so quickly. In the video, we interviewed members of our Kenyan team, and show some of the projects that we were working on at the time. Things have changed and expanded so much since then, and we hope to do another documentary soon!
We have been asked to present on two different podcasts about the work that we are doing in Kenya. Scott and Becky Mackintosh host “Life in 22 Minutes“, Lori Lee hosts “Love Your Story“. On Life in 22 Minutes, they hosted Moses and Heidi in a two part series about the life and culture of the Maasai. On Love Your Story, Heidi talked about the underwear project in Kenya for the rescue centers and street women.
