HELP SEND ME TO HAITI

The Anthropology Department at the University of Houston has asked me to join Coreluv International, a faith-based organization, founded in 2009 with the sole purpose to “Defend the Orphan” on one of their missions in Gonaives, Haiti in January. Our mission is to provide care and safety to dozens of homeless children in Gonaives and surrounding cities. As an anthropology student, this is a truly invaluable opportunity. However, participation in this project does not come without a cost. That, my friends, is where I hope you all will come in!

While the total cost of the trip is well over $1,000, I am asking each of you to help me raise only $375, the cost of housing and other facilities that are made available to me while in Haiti. Coreluv is heavily dependent upon the willingness of volunteers to keep their missions going, therefore, your contributions are a near-direct benefit to Coreluv. Contributing as little as ONE DOLLAR goes a very long way in funding this trip! In addition to contributing financially I am asking that each of you share this message with your peers and colleagues. It is important that I reach as many people as possible in order to raise the most amount of money.

Thanks to all of you in advance for your help! Now, help me Defend the Orphan!
