Community Service Donations Pt. 2

Hello and thank you for visiting my page! Last year, around this time, I expressed my desire to take middle schoolers to Belize so they could have the chance to help other kids their age.  I reached out to the GoFundMe community hoping to at least raise $1000.  I am thrilled to share that with your help, last year, we were able to repaint the entire outside of a primary school (see profile picture), 2 classrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 6 picnic tables, We were also able to give educational scholarships to 6 hardworking students whose parents weren't financially able to send them to high school.  

In addition to financial donations, we received 22 soccer balls, a heap of hygiene products to donate to the families, and a Polaroid camera to send the kids home with pictures.  As a group, we also put on a fine arts festival where we taught dance, music, and theatrical improv that the Belizean kids loved.  We also played many soccer pickup games. They won, we were horrible :).  But at the end of it all, I can easily say it was an incredible trip!

The service trip was such an amazing experience for the kids I travelled with and the kids we helped that I was asked to do the trip again!  So here we go family, are you down to help again?

So here is the scoop:

The students and I will travel from Atlanta to Belize and accomplish 5 goals:

*Clean up and paint 2 new primary schools
*Create an awesome fine arts festival where we will teach dance, theater improv, and music
*Complete a hygiene workshop
*Give away at least 6 $200 scholarships to the kids who received them last year so they can continue their education
*Take family pictures to leave with the families

This is where we need your help! The money you donate will help us with the following:

-Purchase cleaning and paint supplies to fix 2 schools (4 rakes, 20 pairs of gloves, 10 gallons of paint, 2 wheel barrels, 20 paint brushes, 15 paint trays, drills, electrical strips, etc.)

-Hygiene products

-Polaroid film (many kids and their families don't have one picture of themselves so we are going to change that)

-At least 6 educational scholarships! (Background on scholarship need: it costs $200 per year for each student to attend school in Belize. Most parents on average only bring in a couple of hundred dollars a month so many times they have to choose between feeding their family or sending their kids to school)

Any donation you can give would be all the way awesome!

Thanks everyone,

Nicole and the kids in Belize
