EVENT DATE: Sep 16, 2013
I'm turning 33 this year and would like to raise money for ADRA. $333 sounds like a good number, right?
ADRA has a "gift" that costs exactly $110, so if I did raise $333, I could get three of them! Here's the story about this "gift":
From birth until they begin working, most children of the street vendors of Santo Domingo de los Colorados, Ecuador, play on and roam the streets. They are unsupervised from morning until night. This risky behavior puts these children in constant peril. The children who survive often begin selling items on the streets at an age as young as 9. ADRA will provide a safe place for these children to stay at the end of each school day until night, thus encouraging parents to ensure that their children attend school. These children will receive tutoring and homework help, music classes, sports activities, and safe place to be.
$110 will give one child this service for one year -- if we can raise $333, that will help three children for one year!
