Help the Children of Brazil!

Hello Friends and Family,


I hope this email finds you well. I, unfortunately am not very well. I have caught some kind of cold, and not quite sure what it is. I am very nauseous and have a fever. I sweat at night even though I'll be shivering. I am having horrible abdominal pains and my muscles and joints are constantly aching. And I have no energy to even walk to the store. Walking home from work exhausts me, and I can't walk all the way without stopping. I definitely need to see a Doctor, but they are very expensive here, and my Portuguese isn't good enough to speak to one.


I am still teaching 4 different classes - 3 levels of English, and a humanities class for kids who are essentially fluent in English. Most of them are artists; dancers, singers, etc., who have dreams of traveling the world one day and "making it."


I do still need to raise much more money to volunteer for this program. It is very similar to the Peace Corps, however, I am responsible for my own living expenses. I am reaching out for an assist from people like you who want to see me succeed. This is not a paid position; I am volunteering my time, experience, and knowledge to help at-risk youth.


Each year, thousands of people participate in International Volunteer HQ's programs to destinations in more than 20 countries. Volunteers immerse themselves in local cultures, uplift the lives of the extremely poor, and return with life-changing stories and experiences. You can learn more about what they do by visiting www.volunteerhq.org


Thanks to all of you who believed in and support me, and knew my time would come and thank you SO much for making this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity a reality. You're the best! Pictures soon to come!!

Love,
Evan Brienza
