My Name is Roger Sondrup, for almost 10 years my life was selfishly motivated. I did what I wanted with no regard for others. I was addicted to drugs and alcohol, dealt drugs, was in and out of different jails and institutions, and had become disillusioned and angry at God. In December of 2011, I was impacted greatly by God, and was a statistical anomaly in cleaning my life up at the ripe age of 23, (between the ages of 18-25 is when an addict is least likely to get clean, I did it at 23). Since then I have not been at rest unless I am doing something to give back, and serve others. Not because I feel guilty, but because I love God so much for what He did for me. Since then I have been on the path of life where I am focused on serving others. Serving a mission for my Church, serving in jails in 12 step recovery meetings and detention centers speaking to youth.
I have the chance to change people’s lives in Fiji and Nepal with companies like Help International and the JRM Foundation. I know not everyone gets this chance so I want to make it personal to those who are willing to donate to my cause. I am a professional videographer, and I own my own business, my company Pro Motion Pictures has been awarded a small scholarship to film this humanitarian project with Help International. I am honored and grateful for the scholarship I have been awarded. But it is not enough to cover my expenses and with my own money I am still short. The trip will span 6 months taking me from Fiji, then yo Nepal. Any help is greatly appreciated. Now here’s the best part. Many people donate to wonderful causes like this. But I will be posting regularly and updating you all with my travels via my blog addict2altruist.wordpress.com, my YouTube Channel, and other social media sites. It is a chance to make sure your money is well invested.
Thank you so much for your generous contribution.
