When I saw that we had reached our $5K goal I truly didn't know how to express the excitement, gratitude, disbelief, Love, relief, etc that washed over me and through my heart. I can't say I've ever been part of something so huge. I've never witnessed so many people from all stretches of life coming out to support something I believe in. This project has been such a huge journey, as I expected it would be, and I'm beyond grateful to have received the selfless outpouring of Love and support that all of you showed.
THANK YOU! Because if this, I will be able to join my YTT group when they travel to Haiti in Feb 2016 to break ground on a children's school that will be built with the community it serves. I'll spend one week living with an impoverished family and immersing myself in hard work and the empowerment that grows from it. The trip will be no retreat - we will be working long days breaking ground on the school, working alongside the Haitian parents who have been working these past months to show their commitment to this project. I'm truly proud to be part of buildOn's mission.
How appropriate to celebrate such an achievement on World Kindness Day. But, the journey isn't over yet! I am now setting my goal to help our team raise $85K, which will allow us to build TWO schools and our entire group will be able to get involved in the hands on work. Everyone has worked so hard, gone through the same trials and tribulations as they faced their own reality of such a huge project. Please read their personal stories and consider making a $5 donation.
Spreading the inspiration is just as important as raising money. What's meaningful to you? In what way can you involve yourself in that bigger picture? Do something for World Kindness Day to show how huge your heart is and know that every little bit DOES make a difference.
