THE STORY:

♥ ✞ Hi Everyone!! I made this site to raise money for a Service Trip I'm going on in the Summer.

This trip comes at an amazing time in my life. In the fall of 2009 I decided to start getting involved in the Catholic Church and Catholic Student Association at my school. I have been taking classes to become catholic and this Easter I will make my sacraments. I am so excited and thankful to everyone who has been there along the way. This Summer and the Trip to Africa is going to build my faith tremendously and bring me so much closer to the Lord!
Below is some information on the trip ...

I will be joining 11 other classmates of mine as well as the Brotherhood of Hope on a trip to Tanzania, Africa. Tanzania is a country the size of Texas on the east coast of Africa. Tanzania is an extremely poor country. It is considered one of the Least Developed Countries in Africa. Most people live in one room huts that have been thrown together with whatever building materials could be found. Most houses in the rural areas are literally mud-huts with thatched roofs! Many villages do not even have an easily accessible supply of drinking water. The country is so poor that there is almost no public education system. There are mostly private charitable schools that serve at the primary and secondary levels.

WOULD YOU JOIN ME AS A PARTNER IN OUR SERVICE? The brothers will be working together with Rutgers students to offer some charitable service to a school for the poor run by the Precious Blood Fathers and an orphanage run by Mother Theresa’s sisters. We will also be involved with three building projects: 2 homes for destitute families and one new classroom building for a small village school. We hope to raise enough money to assist with our travel costs and also to ship donated computers, baby food, clothing and used bicycles to the schools and the orphanage.

PLEASE, CONSIDER HELPING ME THROUGH YOUR PRAYERS AND A
MONETARY DONATION! I ASKED FATHER VINCENT, THE FOUNDER OF THE VILLAGE OF HOPE, IF WE REALLY MAKE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE? HE REPLIED, YOU CAN NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE VALUE OF ANYTHING DONE IN LOVE! WHAT YOU HAVE DONE MAY SEEM SMALL TO YOU BUT TO THESE KIDS, IT SAYS, SOMEBODY ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT ME! IT GIVES THEM HOPE! ♥ ✞

This trip means the world to me and the others I am going with. But most importantly it means the World to the families and children who we meet. With your love, support, and prayers we can make this trip a huge success!! ♥ ✞
