My name is Jazmile Batista, 19 year old girl from NYC. I am so exited to be a part of this wonderful opportunity at helping the less fortunate. I have always had a passion for helping those in need, but never really knew how I could help.. I happened to cross by this great documentary on netflix called "Living on one dollar" I was immidietly hooked onto it from the minute I started watching it. Throughout the whole movie I kept asking myself "How can these people live on a day to day basis under these conditions?" "How hard must it be to live this way?" But most importantly I kept asking myself "How can I help?" At the end of the film, they were awesome enough to put their website up for those who were interested in learning more about this cause, and interested in donating. I rushed to the website and made a profile and subscribed to many things offered on there. Clicking different links landed me on this website and I was SUPER exited when I saw that I could make my own fundraiser, so indeed i did just that. So here I am hoping to reach my first goal of $500.00 with the help of family, friends and others who are willing to lend a helping hand as well. All together we can be the change we want to see in this world. I am glad to start this journey today- and i aspire to visit this country one day.
