BENEFITING: NORTHWEST HAITI CHRISTIAN MISSION INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 15, 2012
"To whom much is given, much is expected" is a phrase my family does their best to live by. I am incredibly blessed to be able to look up to especially my sisters--older and younger--who live out this creed in their daily lives. Inspired by the generous, genuine actions of these beautiful women I call my best friends, and presented with the opportunity to be more like them, I find myself a month and a half away from being able to go give back to some families who desperately need it in the poorest country in the world.
On the first day of the new year, I will be making my way to Northwest Haiti with an incredible group of people (led by this awesome guy...Check out his incredible video: http://www.crowdrise.com/bdayhome) to serve others for 10 days. We will be rebuilding homes, recapturing lives through photographs and reacting to poverty by passing out as many Toms Shoes as we can! But to make all of this happen, I need YOUR help so that I can help those who need it more. My goal is to raise $2000 by December 15th to fund my trip. Anything that you would spend on me for any holiday, for my upcoming 21st birthday or for any other reason, I want you to lay down here. Every little bit really does help! There is literally nothing I want more than the opportunity to go help others. If you can support that endeavor in any way, I thank you greatly. And if you aren't able to provide financially, your words of encouragement, heartfelt prayers and good thoughts are just as sincerely valued. I love and thank all of you for your kind hearts and for taking the time out of your busy schedules to stop by!
