You may not know this, but my friends Ada and Zach (who are getting married in two weeks!) are involved in a charity called the Endeavor for Hope Foundation (EFHF) which works to promote access to education in rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa.
When I checked my email this morning, I found a message from Ada forwarding photos of the students at a school in Africa that the foundation is helping support.
It really brightened my morning (like a ray of sunshine) and helped me start my day out right (like Maker's Mark), so I figured I'd share one with you while I was waiting here for the people who clean my apartment for my useless ass.
Also, I love how some of the children look bored: just like good students should!
