Let's All Send Money To This Dude In Uganda, Because At Least He's Not Sarah Palin's Brother
About a week ago, we got a nice note from a Ugandan fella saying how much he liked Wonkette and also could we help him raise money? He was creating theUganda Community Farm, a microcredit program, a farmers market AND a stove program to help with Uganda's deforestation. We were all like oh yeah we will look into that just as soon as we learn how to do investigative journalism to make sure it's not all just going into dude's pocket.
Spoiler alert: between then and now, we have not actually learned how to do investigative journalism. But we did have a friend who used to smuggle shit to Somalia look over dude's indiegogo campaign, and he says the things they are addressing -- like the stoves and the deforestation and the leguminous trees for nitrogen fixation and whatnot -- are real issues, and then he told us some stories about the Kenyan aid workers partying in Nairobi, so, that is good enough for us. Also, they are planting ginger, and ginger is fucking delicious.
So let's send some Wonkette love to the Uganda Community Farm, and give away some stoves. Even if it turned out that it was just one guy making some bank -- and we don't THINK so? -- isn't that better than sending cameras to Sarah Palin's impoverished brother? Yes, we thought so too.
Happy Christmas Wonkers! Let's buy some stoves! And some organic ginger! Or just make one guy King of Uganda. Either way, we're down with it.
Rebecca Schoenkopf is the owner, publisher, and editrix of Wonkette. She is a nice lady, SHUT UP YUH HUH. She is very tired with this fucking nonsense all of the time, and it would be terrific if you sent money to keep this bitch afloat. She is on maternity leave until 2033.
