Hey everyone! I am a part of an after school club at my Highschool called Project Humanitarian Involvement, or what we call it PHI. Our goal is to raise money for communities around the world that are in need and send supplies to those who need it. For example, we have raised money for those in Haiti and even sent school supplies to schools in Zimbabwe.
For the past few years our group has traveled to El Salvador with Habitat for Humanity to build earthquake proof homes for multiple familys and communities. The trip costs approximately $2,000.00 for each student to go and we send around 13 students each year. Fundraising was a breeze before our town decided to take away funding for all sports and extracurricular activities, including our group. Now our town is getting sick of giving money to students so they can participate in things like sports, theatre, and clubs.
I'm asking anyone to help out our group this year so that we can continue to help families in need in El Salvador!
Here's a documentary I made of last years trip, enjoy!
Thank you so much,
Jaime Lee Simmons
