THE STORY:

Dear Family & Friends,

Last year I made the best choice out of all my birthdays! I receiver the best gift I could possibly imagine!
Since of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I didn't need, and definitely stuff that I could easily live without. I asked if my friends and family could help me to support clean water projects in developing nations.Thanks to support from all wonderful friends and family , we together were able to raise $523 !! ONE MORE TIME THANK YOU!!

So this year, I'm giving my birthday up AGAIN!!!.This time to local nonprofit from Erie, PA.

I gave up on my birthday....On April 23rd, I'm turning 24 years old, I would like for my birthday to be a birth day of new opportunities and hope for students at risk who gave up on hope...I want to GIVE UP so they WILL NOT GIVE UP!! I'm asking for any symbolic donation or volunteering time from everyone I know to support Bayfront Maritime Center for  summer sailing opportunities for youth and children of Erie, PA.   Would you help me?

Summer sailing opportunities are often out of reach for the under served children of Erie. Given a chance, kids can learn the thrill of adventure, the determination it takes to face a new challenge,and the confidence that develops from learning to work as a team. Contributed funds will sponsor these life changing opportunities for a sailor who might otherwise be unable to participate.

My birthday wish this year is to make my birthday  a day of birth for new hopes and opportunities for children & youth who gave up on their hopes.

I want to make my birthday matter this year and support local community!!!

Please join me,

Lots of love, peace and energy to All of You!!!!

~Marta

We meet people everyday, some are just for a season and a reason, its not how much time we spend with them that matters, but the quality of time we spend with them. You have such an amazing heart and you always do good things for others and this is why you did impact my life.I wish all your dreams and goals be fulfilled and make the best of everything. My dear friend and sister, Happy Birthday. :) 5 years ago
