Help me help the people of Quito, Ecuador!

Due to globalization, the demand for knowledge of English has risen in South America. The English language provides citizens of developing nations with valuable skills to carry forward into their careers. Because tourism is one of Ecuador's most important industries, English skills help native Ecuadorians to better communicate with a wide range of English speakers from all around the world.

However, many Ecuadorians continue to face poverty and lack of access to the resources they need in order to develop these skills. I will be spending the month of September, 2011 in and around Quito, Ecuador, helping underprivileged children by volunteering as an English teacher!

You can help me help them! Please consider a donation to my cause. Anything you can give will help. The money raised by this project will:

1. Help cover the cost of transportation and the program fees that keep the non-profit for which I'll be working running smoothly (and contribute to the local economy).

2. Contribute to a gift of books in English that I will purchase in the U.S. and take with me to Quito. I will take as many as I can reasonably fit in my luggage. Your contribution toward these books will help not just one child, but generations of children well into the future! My wish is to be able to afford a significant gift of valuable books of various kinds that can serve the community for years to come.

3. Any remaining funds will be put toward whatever school supplies are most needed in the organization or school with which I'm placed. The supplies will be purchased in Quito and will then be given directly to the children who need them the most!

Even a small contribution can help make a significant impact. I am so grateful for your time and your consideration; thank you so much. Have a wonderful day!
