The TXProject's campaign for The Emiliani Project

We wanted to make a difference. We wanted to make a difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable among us. Then we found The Emiliani Project and they introduced us to the orphans in Medellin Colombia. We have the opportunity to build a building on some land that will soon be home to dozens of orphaned boys. For $20,000 USD, we can purchase the building materials for a new bathroom (attached to a dorm building we built earlier). We will then travel to Colombia in August to build this bathroom. Fortunately, we are half of the way there. We have found someone to match funds for this campaign up to $10,000, so we only need to raise $10,000 to get us to our target. Please consider giving to our building fund. We will share all the details, pictures and stories of the construction of this building with you during the week that we are there by posting updates to our website https://thetxproject.com.

What's great about this is that %100 of the tax deductible donations go to buying materials. We do the labor. No overhead. And, we will show you how your dollar makes smiles on their faces.
