    Dear Oprah:

    I want to walk with you and your wonderful heart, but you know what, in these economic times, I am unable to pay $30.00.

    I am the President and Founder of EDUCATION AND LITERACY FUND FOR AFRICA. We build schools from Kindergarten through Twelfth grades that specialize in Science, Mathematic, Engineering and Technology in South Africa.

    We also address the needs of HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis in South Africa.

    If you can use my help in volunteering, and/or just cheering on the Not for profit organizations that are being honored in this walk, please contact me.

    Jacqueline Spann
    President, Founder
