My name is Ray Lee.
I've just made a massive decision and my hope is that you'll be part of it!
On April 12th I will be saying \"Bon Voyage\" and make my way across the Atlantic (the SLOW way) to stay on the tiny island of Ibiza.
...a personal journey, an opportunity to lend a hand and so much more...
Some of you know Marie Francoise, aka. \"MF\" aka. \"Douchka\'s Mom\". I call her, \"Madame\". A retired but dedicated public school teacher, she continues to tutor and fill-in when she\'s needed by the kids of Spain.
Madame has lived on the island since 1973 in a 300 year-old finca-style home. Her mother, brother and a wood-burning stove keep it warm. This usually works just fine for a drafty house in Ibiza, but this little place has seen extreme cold and even SNOW as recently as last month...it needs some attention.
But, the isolation of the island, medical issues and drastic drop of DOLLAR vs EURO value make improvements extremely difficult for this amazing woman.
I\'m going to help.
I\'ll be assessing the leaks, making repairs, helping to clean up the property, and stepping out to learn from a land, language and life that I will NEVER forget.
Will you chip in to make this happen?
It would mean the world to me, if you did.
Personally, this is an adventure of a lifetime! I\'ve never traveled so far or for so long by myself. For those of you who know what the last year has been like for me, you know...I\'ve NEEDED this!
In addition to the adventure and repair work, I\'ve been invited to work with Ibiza Masonic Lodge #44 during my stay. My intention is to discover resources from them to offer support for Madame and her family for the longer-term.
I\'ve already committed by purchasing my travel to Spain and will be staying in MF\'s home. Your donations will be used for building supplies and expenses.
Any remaining funds will be donated to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, upon my return in May. If you\'ve never toured the TSRHC, it\'s an incredible place that literally changes the lives of children...at NO COST to the families!
Please STOP "“ for a second "“ and consider taking the two minutes it takes to click that big "DONATE!" button and make a real difference to real people.
...and be part of this great adventure.
I\'ll be keeping everyone informed with pics, blog & video all along the way...stay tuned!
Thank you for anything and everything...love you all!
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
P.S. "“ To answer the frequently asked question, YES "“ the more you contribute, the greater the chances that I'll never come back! ...gee, thanks J
P.P.S "“ Special Spanish treats to thank you for your help in making all of this happen!
