I also wanted to take this time to share a few articles that have been written about the Abyssinian Fund and the success they have had in the short time they have been in existence. Check out From a 542-square-foot office above a bustling intersection in Harlem, the Rev. Nicholas S. Richards is building what he hopes will be a 7,000-mile bridge to the eastern highlands of Ethiopia. There is also the Wall Street Journal article “A Gift in Harlem Helps Farmers in Africa” as well as this review of The Fund’s first fundraising event.
