VIDES USA's Fundraiser:

Banana Fund 2011-Jubilee

VIDES USA's Photo

BENEFITING: VIDES USA

THE STORY:

As you know we (Matt & Frank) started the Banana Fund in 2006 when we first began our VIDES volunteer service in Rwanda. The fund, to which many of you contributed, purchased bananas and fruits to supplement the diets of the young orphans we got to know and also a solar power hot water heater for showers, something the kids never had! We continued the Fund in Sudan to purchase English books and to build a playground in Khartoum. Well, it's been five years since we were out in Rwanda and Sudan and we are asking you again to dig deep into your hearts and pocketbooks to help us raise funds again for VIDES. The money raised by the Banana Fund 2011 will support VIDES and its volunteers who, like us, have gotten to assist communities around the world.

This year also marks the 50 years of service of VIDES+USA Director, Sr. Gloria Mar. Sister Gloria has worked tirelessly for VIDES, and after many years as an educator and principal, her vigilance and love in her service to VIDES still shines through! We appreciate her with all of our hearts, for her charity, understanding and dedication to the Spirit of St. John Bosco and Mother Mazzarello. She has educated us, advocated for us, supported us and encouraged us in our missionary work and involvement with VIDES, and her wonderful life of service is an example to us all.

In her honor and to continue the work we started in Rwanda and the missions, please consider donating $50 or perhaps finding five friends who will donate $10 each!

Thank you again for supporting what is so close and dear to our hearts.
Life is now,
Matt & Frank
