For 5 years now I have been volunteering for organizations like Habitat for Humanity. I have been lucky enough to participate on 5 global builds and am going for my 6th this New Years.
However, this year is a bit different being the first time I have tried fundraising AND marking my second trip to the island! I am really anxious to reach a goal of 1200$ for Sustainable Molokai- a tremendous organization with a serious mission of cultivating symbiotic partnerships for self-supporting projects such as Affordable Home Moloka'i.
In addition to working with 6 families building homes, we will be contributing to the implementation of permaculture projects. Yes!
I have to tell you, my first trip in 2009/10 was an incredibly emotional experience. This was more or less the first time I went on a build where the families and I shared a common language. It made working with a family insanely moving as we moved from construction chat to gabbing over lunch in one fell swoop. There is so much loving energy on Moloka'i, it is a gift to be part of it.
It means so much to me to travel this time of year and work to promote a better island for a better future.
Donating is super easy AND tax deductable!
And! Even better- if you're interested in joining the team (or a future build), there are at least two available spots!! Hurry and nip that in the butt by emailing Kat Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for considering a donation. I hope to see you on this build, or the next!
