CJ & Rod July 2021 – Volunteer trip to Peru to work with disabled kids & adults

Update posted by Charlize Joelle Rafter On Jul 22, 2021

Ok so our Covid tests came back negative so we officially leave tomorrow for Peru! We are so excited it’s gonna be a hard night to try and sleep through the excitement and nerves.
We raised about $450 over what our initial ask was which is so fantastic as we learned the Covid tests in Peru coming back to Canada well exceeded our initial budget and in USD.
Our friends and new friends from The Bridge Church have all stood by us providing donations of cash in excess of what we could have ever imagined.

Weather you donated $10 or over $1000 you are appreciated and the reason we can go help these very impoverished people. May God Bless you!

We will keep you posted if possible during the trip if not we will post after the trip.


CJ & Rod

Shout out to members of The Bridge Church we attend! These members have contributed over $2000 to the fundraising since this past Sunday! That is amazing. We don't know how to say thank you so we will just say Thank you!

The latest funding that came today couldn't have been more perfect timing after learning that the cost of return Covid testing while we are in Peru is going to cost $250 USD each and we had no idea we would be looking at that type of bill. We'd be saying ouch EXCEPT we just received a donation this morning that will now help to mostly cover that unexpected cost.

I can't say how thankful we are for all the people from all the walks of life who have given so freely and abundantly.

You all are the Best! xoxo CJ, Rod & Susan

Wow, I’ve been blown away over the past few days. Having received two donations from people from the Bridge Church that I’ve never ever met or laid eyes on. That kind of giving is on a whole new level and my gratefulness drew me to tears! I’ll be at church in the Park this morning with my dad and hope to meet you! If we don’t connect please accept my thanks 💕🙌🥰

CJ is extremely Proud of her Faith, especially her Faith and not religion! This is why it’s so hard to find an ‘organization’ she wants to be involved with. Her Faith is entirely built on love. Jesus love is the greatest of all showing self sacrifice and unconditional love. CJ has found a church who makes it their mission to also reflect this non judgemental love, not only to each other but those they meet everyday.
We want to take pause and say thank you to any of the Bridge Church attendees who are helping CJ with her remaining fundraising efforts! And we would also love your prayers for CJ & Rod’s involvement, safety & effectiveness. CJ can’t wait to tell you all about

Thank you everyone for all donations big and small so far! We couldn’t be more thrilled and CJ is so happy people are actually backing her! Please share with your network as you never know who else is feeling like giving in order to receive that warm glow in their heart. People pay it forward more than we know if they know there is a need. Think about sharing with your network! 🙌🙌💕💕🙏
