CFX Ecuador Xavier High School

Dear All,


Thank you for reading my GoFundMe. My name is Will Smith and I am a Junior at Xavier High School on 16th Street in Manhattan. Xavier has invited me to participate in a “CFX” service trip to Ecuador where my classmates and I will serve the community by spending time with local residents, engaging in prayer and carrying out community-service projects. To confirm my spot on the trip, I am asking for your help in raising $800 to cover the cost of lodging, transportation and food. 


I realize that $800 is a significant amount of money, so I would like to provide you with additional information that might be helpful to you in considering a donation. I believe in the CFX program, having participated in my freshman and sophomore years. In my freshman year, I went to First Fruits Farm in Maryland where I gathered crops for underprivileged communities. In my sophomore year, I went to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where I performed community service and spent time with Native Americans.


With nearly 3 years of Spanish under my belt, I feel that I could make a meaningful difference in Ecuador and I could help bridge the gap between our cultures. Anyone interested in providing a donation, no matter how small, may click on the “Donate Now” link. 


For your reference, below please find a link with additional information on Xavier’s CFX programs.

Thank you for your consideration. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you might require any further information. 


Thank you,

Will Smith
