Carly & Nicole Volunteer in Costa Rica

Hello dear friends and family!

As some of you may know, we will be volunteering at an orphanage in San Jose, Costa Rica from June 29-July 7. We are ecstatic and can't believe that it's just around the corner! Volunteering abroad has been on our hearts for many years, ever since Nicole's missions trips to Mississippi before and after Hurricane Katrina and all throughout Carly's work with children over the years. 

We've been longing for another opportunity to take some time out of normal NYC/Allentown life to serve others, and now that we've finished college and have a few vacation days to spare - this seemed like the perfect time! 

While volunteering through International Volunteer Headquarter's (IVHQ) afforable programs is a privilege in and of itself, we are looking for some financial support to help cover travel expenses and program fees. 

But more importantly, we hope that our work there will bring joy and love to all those that we meet. Please pray for our safety, the children that we will be working with, and the host family that will be welcoming us into their home. 

If you are able to give a few dollars through this fundraising page, anything and everything would be appreciated!  

15% of every donation received will be used to purchase school supplies, oral hygiene products, and vitamins for the children we will be working with. If you donate- please be sure let us know what you would like your contribution to go towards!

We love you and thank you for taking the time to look at our page.
