Mission Trip to Cabo Verde

Hi- my name is Ellie Dougherty, I am currently a 14 year old freshman in highschool with a GPA of 3.8. I am 1 out of 12 students chosen to be part of a mission trip to Cabo Verde, Africa with my mother in the summer of 2018. We will be going to Praia which is the capital of Cabo Verde (also known as Cape Verde) for 2 weeks and will be volunteering through Cabo Verde For Life by participating in an educational supply drive. We will be personally delivering school supplies to the schools in Praia and the countryside, then we will be conducting English lessons at orphanages near the city of Assomada. My goal is to raise $4,000 by April 2018 (cost of trip). This money goes towards plane tickets, sleeping accommodations, fees, taxes, meals, and ground transportation.As a Christian, I believe that it is our responsibility to care about the well-being of not only those who are involved in our everyday lives but also to those that are less fortunate like those in Cabo Verde and that is why I have such a passion to work hard to be able to volunteer and be a part of these children’s lives to make a difference in their society. This is such an amazing opportunity that I have been chosen to be a part of and I would be more than appreciative if you could donate to this cause.I have invested $400 of my own money for the required, non-refundable deposit.I will be working hard between now and April to raise and work for as much funds as possible and working with other charity groups to solicit their support.Will you please help me by donating here or sending a donation by mail (private message me for address). Your prayers over this mission would be greatly appreciated.In Christian Love,Ellie Dare Dougherty
