Help Finish Our Orphanage & School!
TO ALL THOSE VISITING OUR CAMPAIGN: Our friend and supporter, Matt Vecere who was killed in the Ethiopian plane crash, helped to create this fundraiser in 2015, that is why you may see information that is a few years old. However, the goal is still very real. We weren't able to raise all the funds that were needed, so construction stopped. Now, with donations coming in, we can finish what we started.
"Matt was passionate about the environment, civil rights, social and environmental justice, and advocating for those less fortunate. His passion turned to direct action, rolling up his sleeves to serve causes where he could make a tangible difference. He volunteered countless hours with charitable organizations, at community events, and with numerous relief efforts after natural disasters. Matt had strong connections to Haiti. He served with various organizations and made several trips to the island, beginning after the devastating earthquake of 2010, after hurricanes, and again as recently as two weeks ago.
An avid surfer since his youthful days on New Jersey beaches, Matt has lived in California for more than a dozen years. Matt was excited about taking the trip to Africa to attend the UN Environment Assembly for the first time.
Matt will be missed by many. We are heartbroken more than words can express." https://6abc.cm/2XV88VU
