EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2011
HOURS PLEDGED: 100
Dr. Edgar Rodas, founder of Cinterandes is turning 75 in April!
I know, I can't believe it either! (did you see the photo of him on the Tarabita 400m over that river in the Amazon?)
Cinterandes operates (LITERALLY) on a budget that would make most charities hearts stop! With nearly nothing in cash and in kind donations from cities and towns across Ecuador they do surgeries in a TRUCK!
I just spent a week with them in El Oriente (the jungle) of Ecuador.
It was amazing! Meeting the people from the jungle and learning how they get to their towns . . . TRULY remarkable!
Lets celebrate Dr. Rodas' incredible accomplishments by throwing some cash his way, huh folks?
OH and btw . . . if you donate exactly $16.00 (or exactly $26.00 - who knows why, they're a quirky bunch) by March 31st you'll be entered to win an Ipod nano from Crowdrise! WOO HOO!!
