Thanks for stopping by! I am very excited to announce that I'll be volunteering at an orphanage in Vietnam for about two months this upcoming January 2013. Many people have invested their love, guidance, and even home to me, and now I'd like to pay it forward!
But in order for this volunteer trip to happen, I need your help and support. I must meet my goal, which is $3,000, and every dollar counts.
Volunteering with the International Volunteer HQ, I'll be working full-time, caring for 600 orphans, 200 of whom are disabled.
I'll be assisting the children with basic care, such as feeding, bathing, caring, and giving them the love they deserve. In addition, I'll be helping the staff in providing rehabilitation exercises and therapist treatments for the disabled children.
So please spend about couple minutes to read how you can help me, where your money and investment will go, and other tasks I'll be performing at the orphanage.
Thank you so much for your love and support!
A big hug from me to you,
