SHE DID IT!!! Way to go Jill.  We're so thankful for your willingness to do this, for your dedication to complete the 50 hours, and for your love and support of the albino children.  Jill's Alone fundraiser supported the 200 albino children in Tanzania, to purchase them bed sets (blankets, mattresses, beds, pillows, and mosquito nets).  See below for pics/videos Jill sent us while she was away.
