HOURS PLEDGED: 2
I am SO excited to announce that I have just booked my ticket for my first humanitarian job. I have wished for this opportunity for as long as I can remember.
I am participating in a Volunteer Trip to Haiti from October 15-23rd, 2012. I will be working with over 300 children in Jacmel, Haiti. We will be volunteering at two orphanages, as well as helping to build the Jacmel Children Center, www.jacmelchildren.org, and project work with 105 children from impoverished situations that attend the Art Creation Foundation For Children, www.artforhaitianchildren.org/. After returning from Hong Kong, I am excited to put my teacher training to work. My program will focus on education, rebuilding and rehabilitation. My intention is to offer these misplaced individuals love, nurturance, and to provide a smiling face and supportive spirit to those that have suffered. Volunteering will be a incredibly meaningful and transforming experience, as well as a mutually enriching for both the Haitians and myself.My goal is to raise $3,000 by October 1, 2012. The funds will be given to the orphanages to buy food, clothing, and bedding. At one of the orphanages, the children are sleeping on a concrete floor, and we would like to raise money for proper bedding and nutritious meals. Through the generous donations of friends and family, I am hoping to raise the necessary funds to help the orphanage. Also, if you know of anyone who you think would be interested in donating please feel free to pass along this letter. Thank you for taking the time to consider contributing to this worthy cause. Any amount is highly appreciated.
