Did you know that worldwide about 1 Billion people live below the poverty line and survive on less than one dollar a day? I am in a class at the Denver School of Science and Technology studying social action and how we can make a difference not only in our community, but in the world as a whole. I feel really blessed to be in this world and especially here in America. I don't have to worry about being hungry or having a place to sleep at night. With this great blessing, I feel like I'm obligated to help others out. I feel blessed and I feel like giving back to people who are unfortunate. We can make a difference. We are taking action. Over Spring Break, our class is travelling to the Williamson, West Virginia in the Appalachian Mountains one of the poorest regions of the United States. While there we will learn first hand what it means to live and survive in poverty. I’m very excited about this opportunity and need your help. I am trying to raise $900 in order to pay for my trip, which covers all my expenses including travel, food, lodging and instruction for seven days. Will you please make a donation to help me get to Appalachia? What is in it for you…? - You are a partner with me in my learning experience by supporting me. - You have the opportunity to be part of our class by contributing to our success. - You are joining the Fight against Poverty. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to communicate with you regarding this very important issue. We are thrilled to have this chance to learn so much and we couldn’t do it without your support.
