My name is Erin Blackburn, and I need help to raise money for my upcoming volunteer trip to Kenya.
My volunteer work involves caring for children who have been abused, negleted, or have lost parents to AIDS. Along with working in the orphanage and caring for the children, I will be taking part in school activities, creating lesson plans, and facilitating learning among these children in need.
In order to be the best volunteer possible, it is imperative that I raise money for specific supplies. The money I raise will be put toward buying school supplies such as pencils, art supplies, books and other materials to help with learning. I also plan to make hygiene kits for these children with basic necessities such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste. I need to purchase and prepare all of these items before my trip, and it is quite costly.
Your donation will help to give children supplies and learning materials that they would not have otherwise had. By helping me with this fund raising, you become a participant in these childrens lives and are a force for good from thousands of miles away. Thank you for taking the time to read about my story. I can't wait to make a difference.
