Help me volunteer in Haiti this summer!

I have been offered a wonderful opportunity to become a counselor at Camp Jacob in Port-au-Prince, Haiti this summer. 

Camp Jacob is an annual retreat offered to the residents of St-Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children, where campers are brought to Kaliko Beach Club resort on the northwestern coast of Haiti, 1.5 hours from Port-au-Prince and receive a variety of medical therapies and life skills programming such as creative arts therapy, physical therapy, aquatics and sports. Camp Jacob removes the barriers of the camper's day-to-day lives that are often restricted due to lack of accessibility, funding, and social stigma and simultaneously provides life skills training that increase self-esteem and encourages engagement with Haitian society and the world beyond.

I have been wanting to attend Camp Jacob as a counselor for several years now, for my own personal and professional growth. As many of you know, I have worked with children for over 10 yeras, at summer camps, schools, babysitting and more, but I have never had an opportunity to work with kids in this capacity and I know that they will have so much to teach me. This year will be possible but I need your help to get there.

I am asking you for your help to raise $2,300 so that I can attend Camp Jacob. This will cover all the costs of the trip and help make sure that my home and dogs are secure and taken care of.

Thank you in advance for your support. To see more about what Camp Jacob does, please check out their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/jacobscolorlink/info
