BENEFITING: OUTWARD BOUND CENTER FOR PEACEBUILDING
EVENT DATE: May 14, 2012
In addition to all online donors, a BIG thank-you goes out to Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt MaryBeth, Aunt Sue and Uncle Eddie, Annie, Lil Ed and Aunt Ann and Uncle John for your cash donations!
This summer I was selected to go to Costa Rica on the Practicum on Experiential Peacebuilding with the Outward Bound Peacebuilding non-profit based in New York. The trip is an intensive week of applied leadership and a challenging multi-cultural environment. It also combines direct service into the international work we are doing, which brings together all aspects a quality trip for me.
If you know me, you know how much these experiences mean to me! I believe that these global experiences are what bring the world one step closer to understanding and compassion. I am so excited to be a part of the group of 12 from around the United States that is able to take part in this cross cultural and peace-building experience.
Every little bit get's me that much further - Thank-you for your support!
