• Christmas album sales raise money for students’ mission trip to Kenya

    Christmas for KenyaI absolutely love Christmas music, and I’m always on the hunt for new recordings, be they obscure (Fernando Ortega’s “Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella“) or downright unusual (“The Star Wars Christmas Album“). So I was excited to read that a couple of Baylor students and a local church are using Christmas music to raise funds for an upcoming mission trip to Kenya.

    The students, Kaley and Lauren Eggers, suggested the idea to a pastor at Waco’s University Baptist Church as a fundraiser, which seemed appropriate given the importance of music in both American and Kenyan culture. The 13-track album includes songs performed by both Kaley and Lauren as well as other Baylor students, and it is available for download at ChristmasForKenya.com; the download is free, though a donation of $10 is suggested (you can give more or less). So go enjoy some Christmas music and support Baylor students as they endeavor to help others.

    Sic ’em, UBC students!
