Fundraising Launch

The time has come! This week I am officially launching my fundraising campaign, tied to my return trip to Haiti, on behalf of Friends of the Orphans!

I have set up a separate Fundraising tab that gives some more details about my personal fundraising for Friends and Holly (my roommate and travel partner) and her involvement with Mercy Corps. I am happy to have a direct fundraising page on the Friends of the Orphans website so that I can track donations and send thank you notes accordingly, but also so that donors know with confidence that 100% of funds go directly to Friends of the Orphans. If you are interested in donating, please click on the "Donate Now" link above!

I will be searching for more speaking opportunities to raise awareness as well as any fundraising events or opportunities, so please contact me if you have any ideas or suggestions, or if you want to get involved!

Also, I would be overjoyed if all readers could forward the link to my blog or the fundraiser (direct link: to at least 10 friends or family! If anyone needs a draft of a letter to send out or more information about my story, the trip, or the organizations, send me an e-mail at

I hope you all consider donating and passing the fundraising information along!

Thank you (mesi anpil!!)
