Here's a snippet of Kelli's story:
By Caroline Cox

Kelli Sasser says she felt “compelled by Christ” to help the people of Rwanda rebuild their lives. During the Rwandan genocide in 1994, nearly one million people were killed in one hundred days – nearly 20 percent of the country’s population. The government and military both supported the genocide, and the small African nation was left in shambles.
Fast-forward to 2003, when Rwandan pastor Simon Nziramkenga met Sasser and her husband Scott, a university physician, and explained how access to healthcare was a dire issue. Thus, the nonprofit One Hundred Days was born. While Sasser’s focus is on building a hospital in Kigali, her ongoing mission is to provide healing to the people of Rwanda – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

PINK: Where did you acquire capital to start your organization?

Kelli Sasser: Almost all of our funding comes from friends and family members who have “caught a vision” of how we can offer our core values to people who are in life-threatening need. Our core values include trusted partnerships, sustainable solutions, holistic transformation, passionate service and transforming beauty. Friends fueled by trust and friendship have helped build a community – here and in Rwanda. We have had several multi-thousand dollar gifts, but the majority has accrued in very small donations closer to $100. We have raised more than $300,000. Click here for the full story.

RED TAILS - A Film About American COURAGEOUS Heroes

Last night I had the privilege of escorting a Tuskegee Airman, Mr. and Mrs. Val Archer to the Atlanta pre-screening of Red Tails in Jonesboro (south of Atlanta).  What an honor for me to be in such a glorious position - I really don't know how I qualified but I am grateful to have been chosen to have met such upstanding citizens - to experience the deep gratitude, respect and humility they exude.
T.MORRISON is "Premier Perfect!"

I was among the most prestigious men and women.  National Historian, Zellie Rainey Orr was the speaker and of whom I have the pleasure of calling a client!  Ms. Orr along with Mr. Archer was featured on CNN with Ms. Fredricka Whitfield in November and Mrs. Whitfield and her husband was in the audience as was many other media notables.  There were several pilots there - in failing health as they are well into their 80's and 90's but still with such strength!  The descendants of Booker T. Washington and Fredrick Douglass were there and talk about jaw-dropping, I was just pinching myself that 'lil ole me' was sitting in the front row with Tuskegee Airmen of whom (not to my knowledge) I have any kinship to.  It was not red carpet glitz and glam, it was truly a time where these men and women had a chance to experience what their obedience in such a time of strife, disregard and disrespect earned them - a Hollywood film! WOW, LOOK AT GOD!

Watching this movie affected me on so many levels - it made me very proud to be an American, to have family that have served this country (My Uncle Joe) and to stand even taller as an African-American, that despite the ridicule and disrespect we had to encounter on a daily basis by our White brethren and sistern, we still had their backs.  What a dedicated people we are! What a strong and courageous human race we are!

My hope is that our children - all of them - can look at this film and stand taller for being human and KNOW that COURAGE has NO COLOR!

It takes COURAGE to be willing to do the right thing when everyone else seems to get away with so many wrongs.  It takes COURAGE to love when the risk of rejection is staring you in the face. It takes COURAGE to move forward to accomplish greatness in the face of so much adversity.  But when you MOVE forward with COURAGE you can accomplish the IMPOSSIBLE and BE THE CHANGE you wish to see.





GRATEFUL! Thank You Atlanta Tuskegee Airmen, Mr. & Mrs. Val Archer for making it possible for me to attend the premier with you! xoxoxoxo!
