"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." ~ Gandhi
My name is Elisabeth, and I'm a twenty-one-year-old living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I have some background in volunteer work: I've helped at animal shelters, food pantries, nursing homes - and I would love the chance to be a part of something with an impact like this.
I may not be super qualified, but I am a hard worker and I want to help make the world a better place. Whether or not I'm able to go, I'm honored to be able to support this project.
Even though some time has passed since the destructive quake, Haiti remains in need of aid. Every dollar raised will go toward improving the lives of others; I will deal with travel costs myself.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
RANDOM ACTS wrote -
Two years ago, after a destructive and devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti, Random Acts provided major funding for a journey to Jacmel to assist in rebuilding homes, communities and lives. During our initial visit, a dental clinic was reconstructed, an orphanage was refurbished and a carpentry school with 1600 donated tools was founded.
Later, in 2011, Misha Collins and the Random Acts team returned. This time, we were joined by a group of 22 enthusiastic volunteers. For the volunteers, work began before they arrived in Haiti. To secure their spot, each person expended vast amounts of energy and determination to raise at least $5000. What a great accomplishment! The monies raised from those donations, and donations from our amazing supporters, provided the tools and supplies used during our mission.
While there, the volunteers and staff opened their hearts and arms to demonstrate the true power of kindness. They worked in the fierce heat of the Haitian sun to aid in the construction of a multi-purpose community center; a facility that will provide shelter, as well as educate and feed homeless and orphaned children. Plus, our team members participated in creative and recreational activities with the children, such as arts, crafts and games.
But, our work isn’t done. That's why we're going back in 2012.
