A little over one year ago I went on my first Habitat for Humanity Global Village Build in Thailand. The experience was very rewarding, combining travel to a foreign land with philanthropic efforts that involved hard manual labor, home building, engineering, teamwork, and social interaction with locals. At the conclusion of that trip I hoped that would not be my last Habitat for Humanity trip.
Very recently my team leader from the Thailand trip reached out to me to see if I was interested in helping with a build in Nepal. My eyes got wide and my heart started pounding. I have always wanted to explore the Himalayas plus Nepalese Cuisine is one of my favorites.
Then I realized I only have about 1 month to fundraise $3500. The Habitat trip cost $1960 for the building materials and lodging plus you need to get to the build site on your own. Flying from Baltimore to Kathmandu Nepal will cost an additional $1500. So it is fundraiser crunch time.
If I fundraise successfully by December 31 then the trip will be a GO.
From February 16-27, I will come together with a team of individuals from all over the world to build housing for the local community. I am excited to explore a new culture and contribute to Habitat’s vision of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Please consider supporting my Habitat for Humanity journey. Your tax deductible donation will support an incredible building experience and help provide vital funds for the work Habitat for Humanity Nepal is doing.
You can donate online here (roughly 5% fee) or by mailing a check noting HABITAT NEPAL (message me for my mailing address if needed), that will go directly to our Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip.
Thank you in advance for your consideration! Please let me know if you have any questions about the trip. Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook!
With sincere appreciation,
