BENEFITING: WON BY ONE TO JAMAICA
EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2013
I'll be going on my 3rd annual trip this summer to help lead the Blue Springs High School senior football players to build homes for the homeless in the central highlands of Jamaica. While we're there we will provide work for Jamaican men without jobs, we'll serve the sick and homeless at a county infirmary, we'll donate goods and all of our clothing to the people in the community, and we'll work our tails off to build as many small, hurricane-proof houses as we can for families there. Nearly 75% of the town is homeless, and these "concrete rooms" will be the first homes these people have ever had as their own.
This is a big year for the Blue Springs, MO community because the Blue Springs South Jaguar football seniors (my alma mater) will also be coming along on the trip for the first time. Cross-town rivals putting their rivalry aside to serve others because they know it's the right thing to do - awesome stuff!
Your donation would be greatly appreciated. Each player has to raise $1600 to go on the trip, and we have 42 players going with us this year!
I'm giving butt-slaps (men only) and double-high-fives in return for donations!
