Thank you for showing the power of faith and God's love. We reached our goal for Christian's summer service fundraiser in only 6 days! See More

EVENT DATE Jul 12, 2015

THE STORY:

 

Dear family and friends,

Our son Christian is currently a junior attending Xavier High School in New York City. This summer he has been accepted into their christian service program called CFX, Companions Of Xavier.  The trip is to Tijuana, Mexico from July 12th to the19th.  Christian, along with other select classmates will work alongside with the Esperanza International Organization to help build and repair homes in the local community.

During this summer service trip, Christian will interact with families who are less fortunate, help build homes, form long-lasting bonds with his classmates, friends and fellow volunteers as well as strengthen his spanish speaking skills.  Through the combined efforts of Xavier High School and the Esperanza International Charity, they will explore and deepen their commitment to work, cross-cultural sharing, community building, prayer, and recreation.

The total cost for this opportunity is $1,100.  In order to participate, Christian must raise the remaining balance of $750.

I am reaching out in faith to each of you and hope you will assist with a small contribution. Your generosity towards his fundraising effort will be greatly appreciated.  Any funds in excess of $750 will be donated to the Esperanza International Charity.
