BENEFITING: Esperanza International
THANKS TO CROWDRISE, BY NOVEMBER 30 DONATE EXACTLY:
- $29 for your chance to win an iPad 2
- $27 for your chance to win a Northface Denali Jacket
- $15 for your chance to win two Marmot DriClime Windshirts
- Any amount for your chance to win pizza for you and 11 friends
*TIP: Donate larger amounts in these smaller increments for more chances to win. For example, if you plan to donate around $50, make two $27 donations for two chances to win a Northface Denali Jacket.
In 2005, we had the idea to gather a group of 10-20 recent SU alumni and friends to commit one week of every year to building homes in and raising money for underserved communities in Mexico with the support of non-profit organization, Esperanza (www.esperanzainternational.org). Six years and four treks later, we have had over 60 volunteers, worked on over eight projects, and raised over $15,000 for the organization.
In 2011, due to numerous financial and scheduling constraints, we are unable to trek, leaving the organization without our much-needed physical and financial support. As we typically trek over the week of Thanksgiving, we hope to raise at least $3,000 by November 30 to make up for this loss.
It is our hope that friends, family and community will join together in supporting the tremendous work of Esperanza, organizing communities and assisting families living in substandard housing. Gifts of all sizes - big and small - will make a great difference in the lives of many.
