Are you here to help me raise money to teach and serve in Ecuador for the summer??
My fundraising goal on this page has decreased due to donations outside of this website: (last updated June 4th) $4700 - $1853 = $2847
-jambalaya sales $110
-pickup soccer fundraiser $213
-individual donations(checks made to WorldTeach with my name in memo line) $1530
I will be placed in an under resourced area, living with a host family in Ecuador to teach English for the summer of 2011. In a country suffering from poor living conditions, poverty, unstable government, crime, and pollution from oil drilling, learning the English language can improve lives in many ways. Knowing English keeps students competitive in the job market and provides educational, professional, and social opportunities. They are then able to improve their standard of living and pursue a better education and career.
Volunteering and serving others is obviously very rewarding. Experiencing a different culture is the most interesting thing I have ever witnessed. Therefore, when both activities are combined the experience is bound to be exceptional. I can only imagine how fun and rewarding this experience will be. Feel free to ask me anything before or after and I would be glad to tell you everything.

My goal is to raise the amount of the program cost as well as additional funds for school supplies.
If enough money is collected we can further benefit the community through a service project! (library, scholarships, playground, etc.)
Here are a few examples of what your donation could fund (estimated prices):
$10- 1000 3" x 5" index cards
$20- 20 notebooks
$100- a book display unit
$175- classroom Dry Erase board
$250- round-trip flight to and from US departure city
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts, and all donations are tax-deductible.
"¡¡Gracias AND Thank you!!" -from me and my future students in Ecuador
