BENEFITING: MISSION 292
I am embarking on my first ever mission trip! This is something that Mark and I have dreamed about for several years, but haven't ever felt like the timing was right. This trip is happening very quickly for me! Now I have the opportunity to go to Haiti in January 2016 with Mission 29.2 and am asking for your support. Mission 29.2 is non-profit that hosts an annual marathon in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. The marathon helps to get the local community involved in educational funding while promoting community health and wellness. We provide all of the local runners with running shoes (donations of shoes are also welcome!) and the money raised goes directly to Institution Univers, a local primary and high school that we support in Ouanaminthe. Your donation will help: fund the school with the ability to purchase supplies for the children, 2 daily meals (which most of them would not get at home), and it will help pay for repairs needed at the school. Additionally while in Ouanaminthe, we spend some time with children from a local orphanage where we get to take them to the beach and shower them with lots of much-needed love and attention. Your donation will directly impact these children!
