African Pastor Comes to California to Thank Woman for Donating Wedding Ring
Fresh water well to be dug in village through the work of nonprofit wedding ring charity

YORBA LINDA, Calif., April 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- In 2006, Ali Eastburn learned that children in Africa were becoming sick and dying because they had no clean water. Now, two years later, an African pastor is visiting Eastburn to thank her on behalf of his village for the unusual response she made to what she'd learned.

On Eastburn's finger two years ago was her diamond wedding ring, and she recognized that she could sell the ring to raise money to dig a well. Ali sold her wedding ring and founded With This Ring, a charitable organization seeking to provide the poor of Africa with clean drinking water while inviting other Western Christians to donate their wedding rings as well.

Eastburn, the Executive Director for With This Ring, will be joined by Pastor Asari from Ghana, and will share her story and the mission of With This Ring at a banquet on April 17th at the Doubletree Anaheim Hotel. The public is invited to attend to learn more about With This Ring and to hear the amazing story of the unlikely events that brought these two people together.

To attend the banquet, contact With This Ring at (714) 726-2410. To find out more about With This Ring, visit, where you can sign up for WTR's free weekly e-newsletter, Bling!, Also, you can read Ali Eastburn's blog at
