Living Water Trip to Honduras

Hey everyone, I hope all is well. Normally, I would rather offer my assistance then request it, however, I am humbling myself and asking for your help. I am exploring the idea of going on a missions trip to Honduras from August 24-31 with my church (Reunion Church in Boston) through the non-profit organization Living Water. It is a great opportunity for me to journey to a poverty stricken area and provide those in need with both secular and non-secular services. The team I travel with will provide the villagers with clean water (by drilling wells), teach hygiene, and encourage/aid the villagers any other ways we can. This is my chance to help out those less fortunate and keep my sanity while working in the ethically grey area that is the legal profession.


The only obstacle standing in my way of signing up for this trip is the costs. Unfortunately, Living Water does not fund the trips, so that burden falls upon the shoulders of the volunteers. The trip costs approximately $2,000. This poses a problem for me because law students, by law, can only work so many hours per week during the school year and despite working two jobs this summer, only one is a paid position. After projecting my income from now until the application deadline of May 18th (when the money is due) and subtracting my projected costs of living, I will only be able to raise $500 myself. Thus, $1,500 remains.


Therefore, I am asking for any sort of contributions to help me fund this journey. DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED TO DONATE. Rather, I only ask that you give what you feel compelled to give. Any little bit helps. For all of those that want to do such mission work but cannot due to work, school, family, health, etc., think of this as a way to help out and live vicariously through me.


Thank you in advance. Every little bit is appreciated. I feel terrible asking but I cannot do this alone seeing as law school and Taxachusetts have my income in a vice grip.


****IMPORTANT: I SET UP THIS PAGE IN A WAY SO THAT IF I DO NOT REACH MY GOAL THEN NO ONE GETS CHARGED, SO DONATE IF YOU ARE COMPELLED AND YOU WILL ONLY BE CHARGED IF I REACH $1,500 TOTAL****
