Kris Allen in Rwanda, Africa

27 Mar

As many of you know, Kris Allen is in Rwanda, Africa with TOMS Shoes delivering much needed footwear. His wife Katy is accompanying him. Here are a few updates/articles about how the trip is progressing.

Woke up in Rwanda. Watched the sunrise and some big birds walk around right next to me. Think Im falling in love with this place already.

went to rwanda genocide memorial today. very touching and moving. cant believe that people could commit such crimes. glad its over.

Bonus: I think this is really cool. A geography teacher (I think it is one of Katy Allen’s friends) is mapping out Kris’ route with her students.

@SarahDuch this is awesome! We just filmed video two! It’s a mini tour of the plane!

After talking with the TOMS folks for a good while, Kris Allen and his wife showed up (I’m actually typing this post while Kris is sitting right next to me) and we’ve been hanging out with them all night. They’ve been gracious enough to answer all of our questions about their life now and are just extremely down to earth folks.

Will add updates as they come in!
