PERU FOR A PURPOSE
Organized by: Karley Brown
EVENT DATE Jun 06, 2014
Volunteering abroad has always been a dream of mine. I have particularly always wanted to volunteer with children because I believe they are our future and they too deserve a shot in life. Im overjoyed to have been accepted into the non-profit Global Volunteer (GVN) Organization for their Childcare Program. During my time in Cusco, Peru I will be assisting in the care of severly underprivialged children at orphanages, day cares, schools/after school programs, homes for abused children, shelters and more. Volunteers of the GVN program assist with homework, organize educational activities, teach, and provide love and attention to children that are deprived of it every day.
I will be landing in Cusco, Peru August 11, 2014 for a week stay. Many of you may know that this is also a week before my birthday (August 22) so I'm asking one simple thing; if everyone could please help support me and this cause by donating. Any amount would be greatly appreciated and help drastically. For me, this would be a greater birthday gift than anything else imaginable. Between the flight cost and the Peru program I will have to raise $2,300.00 to make this once in a lifetime trip possible. This is for the Peruvian children who need our love and support desperately.
I have to pay the trip in full by June 6, 2014, 10 weeks before the trip, so that GVN can organize my stay. Extra money donated will go directly to Peru's school system. You have no idea how much of an impact this small gesture can make on the lives and well being of the children in Peru. As I type this on my computer while sipping my coffee it's overwhelmingly eye opening to think how easily we take these things for granted. To us this seams so normal, but to them a computer or a simple cup of coffee are far and few between.
Let's come together and do something; let's be the change we want to see in the world. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and helping this dream of mine become a reality. Not only for me, but for the children of Peru.
Help me get to Peru for my birthday!!!
