BENEFITING: TRAILBLAZER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2014
As most of you know, I am a high school teacher at Shaker Heights High School. I am privileged to teach a class about Human Rights & Conflict, where we explore a case study about the history, genocide and what it is like to live in Cambodia today.
Spring break 2015, I will be able to lead 12 students on a trip to Cambodia to experience what they have studied. I am going to Cambodia this summer, in the first week of August, with my lifelong friend Annie Kemmerling to preview our school trip and work with the Trailblazer organization.
I was introduced to the Trailblazers organization back in 2007 and their mission has never left my mind. They build inexpensive water filters for Cambodians who have have no access to clean water. I can't even remember the last time I did not have access to clean water. With so much abundance in our country, I am hoping this can be a small opportunity to reflect and give back.
Annie and and I hope to collect and present a donation from our family and friends this August of $500. Any contribution, whatever you feel comfortable with giving, will be greatly appreciated.
Please check out the Trailblazers Foundation website, which goes it to much more detail about the amazing work that they do for those living in Cambodia.
