BENEFITING: HIGHRIDGE CHURCH
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2015
This is your chance to rally around a cause bigger than yourself! Join UNITE, an initiative where we bring together a generation to do really awesome things, and change lives.
We need our generation (we need YOU!) to continue to make a difference in the world around us, change the tide, and transform our culture. The greatest world changers in history have to start somewhere, and this mission… is just the beginning.
Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere behind Haiti and is home to approximately 6 million people who live under impoverished conditions.
48% of Nicaraguans live below the poverty line. 23% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic under nutrition. 79.9% of Nicaraguans live on less than $14 a week, which is less than what we might pay for something like dinner and a movie.
We have a long-standing relationship with Voice of Hope, a charitable organization based in Leon, Nicaragua. We go as a each year to help them and get to know the people of Nicaragua.
Our goal is to have 300 students raise $120 each, totaling $36,000 in funds that will enable us to feed 1000 kids per week for an entire year. This will also supply us with the tools we need to build a feeding center in Nicaragua that will last a lifetime.
