Right to Write Ministry Fund

$235 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 10 months
For the past 3 years we have been traveling by sailboat and delivering much needed school supplies to children in many different countries. Help has been given in Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, Columbia, Panama, Cook Islands and Tonga.
We are now in the South Pacific visiting very remote islands that are accessible only by boat. Many only see cargo ships a couple of times per year. Our primary goal is to give school supplies to children but we also bring food staples and fishing supplies as resources for these people are few. 
Many believe charity begins at home, however todays is a global world. Everything we do, every kindness, every drop of polution, affects us all. We hope these small but meaningful supplies we give bring a little help and hope to those we meet. 
This cannot be done alone. We are two people in a very small boat in a big ocean with large hearts. Please consider helping us continue this journey by donating. Thank you

It has occurred to us that you may want to know what Right to Write costs. When we started we worked entirely with donated goods, and loaded our boat before we left Canada.

Those supplies are long gone and these days our greatest cost is shipping to these isolated parts of the world.

We base our costs "per child" in US dollars and we strive to supply each child with 3-4 pencils, 8-10 color pencils, an eraser, a pencil sharpener and a cloth/drawstring bag (case). We also give each teacher (classroom) a pack with paper, notebooks, rulers, scissors and magic markers or chalk. We strive to find the best deals we can but in the end, we spend an average of $6 - $9 per child.

The 500 kits we just prepared cost around $3000!

Our goal this year is to reach 1500 children and so we need YOUR help. No gift is too small. We have no major sponsor, and we do make a difference to the people we help.
