BENEFITING: SURF FOR LIFE
Friends, Family, Colleagues, and Do Gooders at large, YOU are needed: please help me raise funds to build a school where it is really needed. As you decide where you want to make your donations this year, please consider this veritable cause. Education is truly the best donation as it is an investment for a better future, and youth in most developing countries do not have access to schools. You can help us change that, one school at a time.
Why Nicaragua you ask? Why not! We found a really successful and honest program that has made tremendous strides in the past, and we want to support the cause with solidarity and unity. As an engineer, I’m really looking forward to using my educational background and experience to make a large impact on this small community.
My fundraising goal is at least $2,500 to cover the program including materials for school construction. I'm asking for donations of $20-$50, but anything you can contribute will make a difference. I'm keeping a log of sponsors (you!) as I plan to share pictures after the volunteer trip to show you the results of your contributions.
Thank you in advance for your support for positive change in the world (the future elementary school students thank you too!), and enjoy your tax break. I leave you with a quote from William Butler Yeats: “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
