Once more, I will have the honor and priviledge of being a part of Team Redwood this next year (January 2018). Team Redwood consists solely of volunteers. These amazing medical and dental professionals donate their time, energy and skills in order to provide medical, dental and eye care to the Orphanages (and communities) in the surroundings of and within Port Au Prince, Haiti.
Funds raised through this site will go towards:
$1,000 mission fee (covers security, translators, transportation while on Haiti, food and lodging for the 2 weeks we'll be there).
$1,200 will cover airfare/travel expenses/luggage fees. $300 will go for supplies needed for traveling overseas, and anything beyond my goal will go towards extra medications/vitamins or bandages I will be purchasing to bring to the orphanages.
Gofundme charges 9% of anything deposited through its site, so if you would rather contact me and make an in-person donation, please message me on FB messenger.
Of course, if you would like to give directly to the orphanages, you can look up TeamRedwood.org and follow the links.
My first deadline is Sept 15, by which I will need to have paid the first 1/2 of the mission fee. After that, my next priority will be airfare (booking the same flights as my team, to travel in the same group together). The final deadline (2nd 1/2 of mission fee) is due November 1
Mission trips like this would not be possible without the kindness and generosity from my supporters. I am so blessed to have such amazing people around me, and I'm very grateful for this opportunity! I know that the orphans will be happy to see us, and I can hardly wait to see those smiling, adorable little faces!
