Donate and Help Me Make Difference this Spring Break

In the past six years, the Gulf Coast of the United States has been hit by major hurricanes and an oil spill. Most of the country could do little but watch and pray for the people whose lives were torn apart. Devastated communities throughout Louisiana and Mississippi still need help.

Instead of continuing to watch helplessly, I will be joining a group of students from Hillel UCLA as we travel to New Orleanswith PJA & JFSJ this spring break. Our goal is to not only help local organizations in any way they need, but to learn about the community in an attempt to understand how the challenges they are struggling with developed and learn what we can do in the long run to make positive change. While many students look forward to spending their break relaxing at home or going on vacation, I am committing myself to service and learning.

I am looking forward to the trip, but the cost is a concern. The cost will be about 900 for the seven day trip, including transportation. Our group is planning several fundraisers to help raise money and awareness, but any assistance you can provide will be of great help. In addition, by passing this message along to your friends and colleagues you will already be helping us achieve our goal of spreading awareness of the ongoing need in Gulf Coast communities.

I am very much looking forward to this rewarding experience and returning with new perspectives on the importance of service to our nation. I hope to bring the skills and knowledge from my experience in New Orleans back home to work on a project in our community. Your help will make this possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I will be sure to update you when I return.
