THE STORY:

Hello,

I am an exchange student from Lebanon, and I have created this fundraiser as part of my Global Youth Service Day project.  I would like to ask for your help.

Measles is one of the deadliest and most contagious diseases that kills more than 450 children each day.  For just $1.00, we can provide a vaccination.  That means you can save a life for just $1.00.  You aren't just making this person happy, you're saving their life.  

With a $1 donation, you can help vaccinate one child.
With a $5 donation, you can help vaccinate one family.
With a $10 donation, you can help vaccinate one classroom.


My goal is to raise over $1000.00 to help vaccinate an entire village in Africa, and save many lives by ultimately helping to eliminate this disease once and for all.

I want to help the world and have a lasting impact.  To me, this is more important than helping to feed one person at a time, or raising money for a relief cause.  While those are good causes, they don't have the same lasting impact that a measles vaccine can offer a person, or vaccinations can offer an entire village.  This vaccination will protect people forever, not just for a day or year, and that is the impact that I hope to achieve through this fundraiser.

We are very fortunate in our world that we don't have to experience life threatening diseases on a daily basis.  Ourselves, our families, our loved ones are safe from this fate because we have access to vaccinations.  Imagine what it would be like if we didn't.  If every time someone got a cold, it threatened their life, as well as those of all the people around them.  The solution is simple, and it costs less than a cup of coffee from Starbucks.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, and for donating to this very worthy cause.  I appreciate your support, as do the beneficiaries of your work, who will benefit from your donation in a way we won't ever be able to fully see.  

Thank you,

Mira Fakhrideen
