Donation 1BYRON CENTER, Mich-  Four children and their family fought the winter storm Saturday morning to make a donation to the Samuel Omogo Foundation. 

Emma, Sarah, Nate and Ben Tomlinson donated their allowance in a mason jar to the foundation after hearing about the foundation back in the summer time. 

They collected close to forty dollars to pay-it-forward for clean water wells in Nigeria. 

The Samuel Omogo Foundation (SOF) was started in memory of Samuel Omogo who died at a young age of 47 in October of 2011 after battling an illness.  Samuel made such a difference with improving so many lives in many villages in Nigeria.  SOF was formed to help keep Samuel Omogo’s legacy alive, according to the Foundation’s website. The foundation is currently helping to drill wells in the southeastern region of Nigeria.

The foundation is based in Wyoming, Michigan.

    That is great and all, but how about focusing on the needy here in the US or here in Michigan? Instead you put all of your efforts, and they are noble efforts, into helping those in other countries who would most likely rather see you silly American's dead than alive.
