THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends:

We know that worldwide, and especially in Africa, there are people just like us including children who are dying because of hunger, dehydration and other sicknesses related to the lack of nutrients. They are also dying, because we as human beings are not helping each other.

The idea of helping those in need, like the people in Africa, has been with me since I can remember, is like a piece of me that I can´t let go. Since I was little, I was taught by my parents to always be grateful for everything we have, because at the end of the day you don´t choose in which family you are born into, it´s just pure destiny. And since then, I´ve seen the world in a different way...a way that I´ve realized how fortunate we are. Because of that, I have been volunteering in helping those who don’t have the same opportunities.

My desire of wanting to help people in Africa really grew when my Dad went once to Ghana about 6 years ago to help build a school and some much needed bathrooms. Believe it or not, in these communities, there were no bathrooms. They even have to walk for hours just to get a bucket full of water. Since my father´s trip, where I learned about the way of living of these people, I knew that someday I wanted to go to Africa and help.

Last week, my dream came true! I received the news that I won a grant for a volunteer trip to Africa. At the end of June, I will be going to Ghana to work with the local community to help build a school. I decided to go for one reason: to help those people who need it. Those who keep reminding us that we need to help each other.

But first I will need your help…

Let´s work together and help those in need. I have set up a webpage to raise donations for my trip to Ghana. These funds will be used to build a school, improve local facilities, as well as more bathrooms with washrooms. Also, it will also be used for the construction of two water wells.

As in every fundraising page, we have our own goal. My objective is to raise $7,500 USD, so let´s have this amount as our target and let´s see what lies ahead of us. And remember that any amount is more than welcome…the sum of everybody´s effort is rewards to many. We will certainly make a change in the lives of these people forever!

At first this was all a dream, a hope. Now this is becoming a reality…so let´s help this dream come true.

“Be the change you want to see in this World…”

Thank you,
