Matty's Fund to Help People in Need

Hey Everyone! My name is Matty Pierce. I am a young adventurer from Santa Barbara, California. I love to travel and live a very different life. Most 15 year olds don’t get to travel to Central America and experience the things I do. Two summers ago I traveled to the Nicoyo Peninsula in distant Costa Rica and lived in cozy little bungalows along the coast and forest. This past summer I went to Nicaragua solo to experience the lives of people who live very distant from the capital and resources. I stayed in a small house with a Nicaraguan family and had so much fun surfing and living their lifestyle for a couple of weeks. I have also been traveling to the Door of Faith orphanage in Mexico for the past few summers. I absolutely love the children and have become great friends with some of them! Next week I will be traveling to Mexico to help build houses for families in need. A few weeks after that I will be traveling to El Salvador to install water filters in areas with very little access to clean water. The non-profit Project Save Our Surf is running the event but I cannot go unless I raise enough money to pay for airfare, housing, etc. Please help me out so I can go on this amazing trip and help the people of El Salvador! Please feel free to share and tell your friends and family. Remember, anything helps!
