Organized by: Nick Rolfes

THE STORY:

*** CAMPAIGN UPDATE 8/12/14 ***

Our fundraising and philanthropic efforts were successful beyond our wildest dreams.  In total, we distributed over $5,000 to six amazing local organizations around the world (with more donations still to come!).  Take a look at our activities here, and thank you to everyone that helped make this a massive success!

*** CAMPAIGN UPDATE 7/10/14 ***

After 30 days on the road, we've donated approximately $3,500 to four amazing local organizations in Ahmedabad, Seoul, and Tokyo! Keep the donations coming, as we have more organizations to visit in Beijing, Santiago, and Buenos Aires.

*** CAMPAIGN UPDATE 6/9/14 ***

Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts so far!  We're on our way out tonight and are excited to put these donations to good use.  We will keep the campaign open until we make our last donation in Argentina in the beginning of August. 

*******************************

In June, Nick's taking a break from the corporate world and Priya's taking her vacation from med school to spend the summer traveling the world. Over the course of 10 weeks, they're flying over 40,000 miles to visit 20 cities in 14 countries!

Nick and Priya are both very grateful to have this unbelievable opportunity, and they want to give back to those less fortunate in these countries. To that end, they're each donating $1000 to the local communities that they visit - medical clinics, schools, orphanages, or various other charities.

They would like friends, family, classmates, colleagues, or random internet strangers to add to their donation in hopes of making a small difference to those in need around the world.

100% OF MONEY RAISED WILL GO TOWARD THE PURCHASE OF DONATED SUPPLIES, OR WILL BE GIVEN DIRECTLY TO LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS.
