FREEDOM TO LOVE
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and supporting me by being part of my mission! I am inviting you to accompany me on my journey towards the Freedom to LOVE by participating in my mission with VIDES USA at the United Nation's 56th Commission On the Status of Women.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a special calling deep from within my heart to find a way to share the LOVE that GOD put there. My journey in responding to this calling begins here, with my mission work with VIDES USA.
After an intense formation experience which included a lot of prayer and spiritual reflection, I have found that an essential element that I have been missing in my response to God's call to LOVE, is allowing myself to have the FREEDOM to LOVE without expectations, conditions, rules, or limitations. How can we put limits on the way God loves us? Why do we put any limits, expectations, rules on what our lives can become? God is infinite and we can never know what He might have planned for us.
This opportunity to help VIDES' projects and work at the UN this year's Commission on the Status of Women will focus on the empowerment of rural women and their role in hunger eradication, development and current challenges. Supporting this mission, with VIDES USA (www.vides.us) and participating with VIDES at this year's United Nation's Commission on the Status of Women is a first step for me, and can be for you, to being FREE to LOVE.
I will be spending slightly more than two weeks in Haledon, New Jersey and will be commuting each day to. the United Nations in New York City along with other VIDES representatives. Here is a link for the Commission for more details:
With your help, we can work with VIDES at the UN so that more people can grow to be Free to LOVE, without expectations, limits or fear. Support VIDES and its mission at UN in the following ways:
Commuting Costs: $30.00/ day
Room and Board Expenses:
Donation/ Offering to Host Community in Haledon: $40.00/ day
Additional Food/ On-site Costs: $20.00/ day
To cover the basic costs of this mission, I need to raise approximately $2000.00.
That means that I need to find 100 people who can donate $20.00. Please donate what you can. If you can donate more than $20.00 feel free!
I would like raise enough to help VIDES continue their work with the UN at the Commission on the Status of Women by raising an additonal $500.00- $1000.00
