Hi my name is Joe Mahony, I'm 18 years old from Dublin, Ireland. I am raising funds for a volunteer year I'm doing in Detroit, Michigan. The money that I recieve will go to getting me over there and will aid me to do my missionary year. This includes working with deprived youth from the streets of Detroit and working with the homeless of the city as well as helping people who suffer from addictions and help them with they're rehabilitation get back into a working environment. I am hoping to be over there by the end of this month. I have always enjoyed working with people of all ages. I have been blessed with so many people who have made a difference in my life and I hope that I can make a difference in someone elses life during my year in Detroit. I would very much appreciate any donation made, big or small, as every donation given will go directly to this mission year and will help me help others. Every penny counts!
