An Inspiring Video Conference About Tithing

Good morning everyone,

I recently read about a video conference with a very special boy, Stefan Lyons.

He's an 11 year old who has been raising money to build a school in Africa. He started his Kenya Project of giving and tithing at the age of 9 years old.

He has raised $2,000 baking and selling cookies but he still needed to raise more money to finish the project.

So he wrote a book "My Adventures with Stitch" about his pet white rat. It's filled with true stories and Stefan even took many of the picture that are in the book.

He raised enough money to convert an old cowshed in Kenya into a large schoolroom called "Stefan's Wing.

The video conference was offered through Polycom's educational programs and included classes in New York, South Dakota, Texas and Arizona. All four time zones!

During the video conference, students had a chance to ask Stefan a lot of questions about his Kenya Project, about his being an author, and of course, about his pet Stitch.

Isn't it amazing how a young boy like Stefan can truly make a difference by tithing his time and talents to help kids in Kenya?

And because of video conferencing, you can reach out to people all over the world. And make a difference.
