BENEFITING: CAMBIANDO VIDAS
Hey ya'll! Just by coming to this page, it shows you have some interest in giving back to the community (just like someone in the past has given to you)! Have you stopped and taken a second to say thank you for the roof over your head? Or the connection and bond you have with those around you? Having these things in your life is truly a blessing and an organization like Cambiando Vidas works diligently to bring both of these things to families and communities that greatly need them. CV not only includes the community members and family members themselves in these efforts, but encourages service from foreign volunteers to contribute to the community while taking with a immersive and culture filled experience. My team and I will be traveling to the Dominican Republic in July to work alongside the community members to build a new home for a family. This mission works to not only bring a safe house for this family, but also strengthens the connections within the community, families, and foreign volunteers (Us). Having gone on mission trips in the past, I see how the interaction between residents and outside volunteers brings a whole new meaning to the act of selfless service and charity. Around this time last year, my sisters and I had traveled to Flint, MI to act as volunteers and translators when the Flint Water Crisis was covered most through the media. This is exactly what Cambiando Vidas sets out to do and they make it possible for people like us to really help the community. I am lucky that I get to travel with these same sisters! I hope that you can join my team and I alongside CV to bring this experience to the family and community in the Dominican Republic by sending your prayers and good wishes, sharing our page, supporting our events, or contributing a financial donation. All proceeds will go to lodging, meals, transportation, and most importantly, construction materials. On behalf of my team, I whole heartedly thank you for your support!
