BENEFITING: BAJA BOUND MINISTRIES INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 15, 2014
For my 40th birthday, I wanted to celebrate life by doing my favorite thing in my favorite place with my favorite people. So I am inviting YOU to be a part of a house build in Mexico!!! By building a home for a hard working family in Ensenada, we will be giving them a brand new life, impacting generations to come.
1. Donations! It cost $7000 for the building supplies. But my goal is to raise a few thousand over this amount to help make the trip affordable for the participants. Every gift counts!
2. People! My goal is to bring 20-30 people with me to build the house February 15-17 (President's 3 day weekend). No skills necessary!!! We will be led by the non-profit organization Baja Bound Ministries. We will all stay together at a safe and secure retreat center right on the coast near the building site in Ensenada. It's a beautiful place! We'll have a birthday fiesta one evening, and have some time to enjoy the region too! For more details, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Prayers!... that this takes my mind off of turning 40! Just kidding. :) Prayers for the family that we are going to bless, that the funds will be raised, that people will be able to join, safety at the building site, and travelling mercies.
MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
As you may already know, the impoverished people of Mexico are near and dear to my heart. I love building relationships with the people, enriching the children's lives, and helping them find a way out of their poverty. Giving this family a home will change their lives in so many extraordinary ways. It does not merely shield them from the elements, but also helps them to stay healthy and clean, gives them a sense of dignity, provides a safe and secure environment for themselves and their belongings, and frees up their limited finances to provide their children with a good education. It is truly life-changing.
Baja Bound is a non-profit organization that builds homes for the working class families of Mexico. They will guide us through this adventure! Baja Bound provides the tools, supplies, and construction leaders at the work site to guide us through every step of the build. Please take a look at some of the before and after photos of past house builds I have attended. The house will consist of 3 rooms, insulation, dry wall, a loft, many windows, cement floor, a shingled roof, and a door with a lock on it (somehting they have never had!)
IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS IS A TAX DEDUCTIBLE BIRTHDAY PRESENT!! The donations will go directly to Baja Bound Ministries and are tax deductible. You will receive a receipt via email once you donate.
Come be a part of this rewarding adventure!!!
