In _______ of 2012, I will join a group of American volunteers to Peru on a mission to help improve and expand the capacity of a facility in Cusco for really needy children. Parents of these needy children face difficult choices: watch their kids live on the fringe of society, without sufficient food, shelter or basic medicines; relinquish them to institutions that can feed and house them; or abandon them when their own lives end or become too burdensome. The children's home where I will be volunteering clothes, houses and educates the children to be happy, productive members of society. As a volunteer, I will engage in a variety of activities, such as: helping them with their studies, training them on computers, teaching them dance, working with them on handicrafts and artwork and playing games with them. In addition, I will help in the community elementary school or help with painting, cleaning, or repair in the orphanage, and most importantly provide the children with desperately needed one-on-one attention.
By making a pledge on my behalf, you are supporting the development of these children toward future independence, and contributing to a greater world of understanding and awareness. My goal is to raise at least $990 this year. Over 85% of your contribution goes directly to the programs. Please help me reach that goal with your pledge. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your tax records.
