Help me get to Costa Rica to help kids

I am about to embark on a once in a lifetime experience. I have made the decision to travel to Costa Rica this January, 2013.  This is solely a volunteer/mission trip. I will be spending two weeks volunteering my time with kids in orphanages, community centers, day-care centers, and underprivileged schools.   I am deeply and truly honored and excited to be able to teach, lead games and activities, as well as help care for the wonderful kids that I will meet. I am also excited because this trip offers me opportunities to grow, not only on a personal level but on a professional level as well.

 

Being that this is a volunteer trip, there will be no profit to myself.  With that said it will be my personal financial responsibility in order to make this trip a reality.  The total cost and expenses for this trip will be $2,000.00.  The expenses include registration fees, 24/7 support of the International Volunteer HQ staff, travel costs, round trip airfare, stay expenses for my host family, international travel insurance, and daily meals. 

 

I would greatly appreciate any support that you could offer me which would enable me to participate in this experience. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
