Isaiah Washington & Stevie Wonder‘Reach One Million Campaign’ to Help Children in Sierra Leone

On Thursday, August 21, during ‘Stevie Wonder’s Morning Thunder Thousand Dollar Thursday’ radio show, heard locally in Los Angeles on Radio Free KJLH102.3 FM, Stevie Wonder donated $5,000 to actor and philanthropist Isaiah Washington’s ‘Reach One Million’ Campaign. The donation will be used to erect a water well in the local village of Njala Kendema in the Bo Region of Sierra Leone, West Africa where there is little access to clean drinking water and 70 percent of the country’s population lives in extreme poverty.

Washington recently used the occasion of his 45th birthday to kick off the ‘Reach One Million’ Campaign, a national campaign spearheaded through his non-profit organization The Gondobay Manga Foundation with the mission of raising $250,000 to help improve the lives of one million children in Sierra Leone-one village, one region, at a time.

The campaign’s official websites are www.ReachOneMillion.org.
