Lindsey's Internship with UNICEF-Israel

I have somehow (Jesus, much?) managed to land the internship of a lifetime with UNICEF's director of advocacy in Tel Aviv, Israel. I will spend three months this summer drafting reports on the implementation of the United Nation's treaty "The Convention on the Rights of the Child" to be submitted to the U.N. This is a human rights initiative focusing on insuring basic human rights for every child in every nation around the world, and I am humbled beyond words at being given an opportunity like this.

Because UNICEF is a non-profit organization, there is no compensation for my internship, and I am solely responsible for the costs of flight, transportation, accommodations, etc. Any donation will help pay for things like supplies, food, transportation, and (funds permitting) the ability to visit some of the Holy Land's most historic locations such as the Western (Wailing) Wall, Bethlehem, Qasr el Yahud (the site where John the Baptist baptized Jesus), Nazareth (the childhood home of Jesus), the Dead Sea, the Red Sea, etc., etc., etc., etc.

When initially asked about starting a fundraising page, I was very reluctant because it is not style to ask for help. (especially money! how embarrassing!) But then I saw this scripture on a friends Facebook post:

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8

It was a much needed reminder that this trip is not about me! I want to make the biggest impact I can this summer, and to do that I need support. Please do not feel obligated or pressured into donating! This is simply a forum to donate if you are led to do so. Thank you all so much for the love and support. It is undeserved, but so much appreciated!
