BENEFITING: EDGE OF SEVEN INC

EVENT DATE: May 02, 2011

HOURS PLEDGED: 336

Emma Kosciak

THE STORY:

In May I will travel to Salleri in Nepal. This is a remote mountain town in the Everest region where I will (willingly) have no access to modern amenities and will spend two weeks doing hard manual labor in an effort to help others. I'm requesting your help and support.

I'll be traveling with the Non-Profit Edge of Seven, who believes that investing in girls and women in developing countries is the best strategy to end global poverty. Seven out of every 10 girls in the Everest region of Nepal don't have access to education because the schools are so far away. I will be helping to work to change that by building a hostel for girls to stay at while the attend school. I'm asking for your help and support as we raise the funds necessary to complete construction (shown in one of the pictures to the left).

While I'm not entirely sure what it is I got myself into (yikes! the airplane landing is a dirt strip of land!), I'm ecstatic about it. My boss, Scott, sits on the Board of Directors for this organization. While helping to fundraise for their most recent construction efforts, he looked at me and said "Emma, this seems up your alley...think you would ever do something like this?". I said "Well, if my boss can give me the time off, ABSOLUTELY!". Needless to say, we worked it out.

Foreign travel, hard manual labor, supporting education for women, helping to reduce poverty, if that doesn't have Emma written all over it, I don't know what does! I know many/most of you share my sentiments. I'd really appreciate and be incredibly grateful of any financial support you can show in the form of a donation. My goal is to raise $3,000. With your help, I just might succeed! Simply click the orange "DONATE" button on the top right hand side of this web-page!! Also, please don't feel pressured to donate. If you are unable to show your support financially, any form of support is welcome, such as leaving me a kind message below:) Or do both!

Thank you for helping me make a difference in these girl's lives. If you're interested in learning more, visit www.edgeofseven.org and see some fantastic pictures from their most recent excursion here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/edgeofseven/collections/72157625606815558/
