Dear friends and family,
This summer, I'm going to be traveling to Ecuador, to participate in a community service project. The exact nature of the project is not yet known to me, but I can give you a sense of the kind of work I'll be doing. I will become deeply rooted in a remote rural village in Ecuador’s western lowlands, while I live with a family in a their home. For two weeks I'll work with locals in the restoration of a school building and the construction of a community center. When I'm not working on this project, I'll have the opportunity to get involved in the community in different ways.
As you can see, a lot of exciting and challenging ventures lie ahead for me. Before I go, I'm urged to do as much fundraising as possible. The money that our group raises will pay for building materials and supplies. Any excess money could go to things like toys or sporting equipment for the community center, and for the local school, etc.
With all this in mind, I'm asking you guys to help, by asking for a fully tax-deductible donation. 100% of your contribution will go directly to this service project, and I and my fellow group members will be able to oversee this project through to its completion.
Thanks so much, guys!
