Belen Youth Missions Trip 2014
I'm very excited to share about a unique and special opportunity that has crossed my path to help make a difference in a rural and impoverished town in the Dominican Republic this summer. I work at a private school in Miami that prides themselves in the formation of MEN FOR OTHERS. Our goal is to build a bridge in Hoyo de Perez, Altamira (Puerto Plata) to benefit four communities which include over 100 families.
This year, 100 students have committed to going on this mission to Hoyo de Perez. Each student has been given a goal of raising $500 to help sustain the trip and all its expenses. Visit the newly designed Belen Youth Missions Trip website, www.belenyouthmission.org and make a donation.
I had a CRAZY IDEA...
...what if we could deliver 100 Bilingual Children's books to 100 families?
I want to invite you to make your way into the heart of a family in Dominican Republic with a gift that will spark the imagination, bring a smile to children's faces, and encourage the importance of literacy!
I would like to take 100 copies of my children's book to 100 families in Dominican Republic. If we are able to surpass this goal, with your help, extra funds will go towards purchasing medical supplies for the Trip.
$1,500 Dollars in 1 month?
I know it sounds crazy, but it would be amazing if 100 friends (and friends of friends) would purchase 100 books. Every $15 dollars donated HERE will ensure another family will receive a book.
(Books need to be ordered 1 month before the trip departure to ensure their arrival.)
Who's up for the challenge?
Organization: Belen Jesuit Preparatory School
Location: Hoyo de Perez, Altamira (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic
