Help Poor Children in Brasil with School Supply
Organized by: Andrea Skehan
EVENT DATE Feb 29, 2016
"Let us together help children to look for a better future" My name is Andrea Druck Skehan. I was born in Brazil, where I grew up close to my family, studied and got a B.S. Degree in Physical Education at PUCRS.
While working in my professional practice period at low income communities, I had the chance to learn about the many difficulties faced by those people. During 2008 I came do US, in order to work in a Foreign Students Program at "Hyatt Hotel", Lake Tahoe, Nevada. There, I met an American citizen, we got married, being blessed with a beautiful daughter, Annabel.
In 2016 I´ll turn 30 and, in order to express my gratitude to life and to all American and Brazilian people who give me care, support and love, I have decided to develop a project, aiming to provide to low income children in Southern Brazil, a back-pack containing basic school supplies. Therefore, in order to achieve this goal, I´ll need your help.
As a matter of fact, all of us have at least one good reason to be thankful for.
Our goal is to reach a number of 300 back-packs with basic school supplies to be distributed in three different schools of low income area. I´ll be traveling to Brazil next February, which is the deadline for delivering them. No matter the amount of your contribution, it means a lot to them. Counting on your generosity, I thank you very much. Andrea
