Wow! It has been a whirlwind month for us!
We just completed our successful kickstarter campaign
, 3 tradeshows in three countries, and the 20th anniversary Lewa marathon, which Love is Project sponsored in Kenya on July 29. It is such a unique experience to be a part of! Camping in the bush was definitely a highlight. It was wonderful to connect with our partners at NRT/Lewa conservancy teams doing their best to protect wildlife, environment and the communities in the surrounding areas.
All 1500 runners wore LOVE bracelets beaded by artisans across Kenya in Ngong Hills, Maasai Mara, Tsavo, Laikipia Samburu Trust & Lewa NRT.

Soon after arriving at Lewa, Cosmas and his team gave me a preview tour of the marathon course and the initiatives Lewa. He has worked at Lewa for 25 years and he is passionate about conservation and takes pride in his work everyday.
