BENEFITING: Operation of Hope
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2016
Dear friends and family,
This October I am heading to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe with my friend Dr. Christiaan Schrag. We will be joining Operation of Hope and their team of medical volunteers to provide free life changing cleft lip/palate surgeries to children in desperate need. We aim to preform 40 surgeries during our 5 operating days.
I am looking for financial help to cover the cost of my flight to Bulawayo. One of the reasons this organization is able to provide life-changing surgery is because of the volunteers. They volunteer their vacation time and also cover all of their flight expenses. All additional money raised will go towards the surgical mission which costs an average of $250.00 per surgery. All donations will receive a US tax receipt.
As many of you may remember, I was fortunate enough to join Operation of Hope in Harare, Zimbabwe back in May of 2014. This was my first surgical mission experience, and Operation of Hope was such a wonderful organization to volunteer with. They are astonishingly organized, caring, and really made you feel like family. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to have this experience again.
Be sure to watch the video... I'm in it!
Words cannot express my gratitude for your generosity. Your donations make it possible for these children and their families to smile.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
