THE STORY:

I am in the 6th grade and I want to share an exciting opportunity that I have to travel to Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa this summer. My mom and I will participate in a Family Service Learning Journey with Ripples of Hope for the first part of our journey. While there, we will be working side by side with volunteers and residents at schools and youth organizations  such as Kilptown ( see video)in Johannesburg and Cape Town with the nonprofit organization, Ripples of Hope founded by Kristen Atwood (www.ripplesofhope.org). Next, the second part of the journey involves visiting a family on the mission field from my church. They are missionaries with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). They work with kids and their families in South Africa. I am looking forward to seeing their work firsthand. I really hope that by taking this trip, I will see the world differently and get out of my comfy place and make difference. I hope to be more aware of the ways that I can make the world a better place. I know that some of you would like to touch the lives of the people in South Africa and you can! I have the responsibility to help raise funds for Ripples of Hope to make the trip possible and helping to cover my portion of the service trip. I am still a bit short of my goal. No donation is too small.  I look forward to sharing stories and pictures on my return. I hope you and your family will consider donating to Ripples of Hope towards this trip. Checks should be mailed to P.O. Box 1263, Dedham, MA 02027 to receive a tax-deductible receipt. (Ripples of Hope is a registered 501(c)3 and as such all donations are tax deductible.)
