EVENT DATE: Jan 07, 2012
January 7-15, 2012 I will be traveling to Gualan, Zacapa, Guatemala with a class of Arcadia students. For this week we will be volunteering with a project called Hearts in Motion. The mission of Hearts In Motion is to provide care and medical treatment for children, families, and communities. Our time will be spent at a school, orphanage and medical center.
You can learn more about the organization at their website (http://www.heartsinmotion.org/index.htm).
I am looking to raise money to assist in the total cost of the trip, which is $2200. We're also taking donations of medical supplies, clothing, school supplies and spanish language children's books.
Any donations you would like to contribute can be sent to either my school or home address.
In lieu of gifts this holiday season I would like everything to go to this project, the cause means a lot to me and I (and you too!) would feel much better about giving back to the world, or well the state of Zacapa, Guatemala, we have to start somewhere before we go everywhere!
Anything you are able to contribute would help immensely!
When I get back in January I will be sure to send you all pictures and video of the experience!
