Volunteering in New Zealand 2017
Organized by: Lynn Lewis
The organization that I will be participating in is International Volunteer HQ. More specifically I will be volunteering in the New Zealand program that will help the local environment. In that program I will be working on the Coastline Conservation and Education project. What this project entails is that I will be there for two weeks assisting with the staff with coastal clean ups, educational presentations on the topics to local schools and businesses and preparation for further scientific analysis of litter and debris found during clean-up activities. Why did I pick this project? I picked this project because I am thankful to be alive. I'm proud of the family I came from and how they raised me to be the person I am today. I am one of the lucky ones in this world and I always wanted to do something that would help another community. Being a person who loves different cultures and the environment, I was excited about this project and knew that this was my chance to give back. I need help in order to make this happen. I plan on going next year in March 2017 and I will be doing different types of fundraising to get this goal met. Will you help me? I can't do this alone. I need help in order to even get started and I highly appreciate that you took the chance to read this letter.
