Eleven years into this journey, her travels have taken her to the far corners of the earth and off the beaten path. She has met foreign dignitaries, traveled to remote poverty-stricken villages, climbed mountains, slept on dirt floors, celebrated with many and cried with a few. She has met thousands of people along the way and her life has been blessed and is profoundly richer for having crossed paths with so many remarkable human beings. One hundred and forty-four passport stamps later, she is a different person as a result of this work.
“In gratitude to the thousands of donors and volunteers who have changed the lives of so many, thank you for allowing me the privilege of bringing smiles to the world on your behalf.” – Kim Valentini.
