Send Ava to Vietnam - Goal: $3,000

$712 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 53 months

Hello everyone:

Thanks for stopping by! I am very excited to announce that I'll be volunteering at an orphanage in Vietnam for about two months this upcoming January 2013. Many people have invested their love, guidance, and even home to me, and now I'd like to pay it forward!

But in order for this volunteer trip to happen, I need your help and support. I must meet my goal, which is $3,000, and every dollar counts.


Volunteering with the International Volunteer HQ, I'll be working full-time, caring for 600 orphans, 200 of whom are disabled.

I'll be assisting the children with basic care, such as feeding, bathing, caring, and giving them the love they deserve.
In addition, I'll be helping the staff in providing rehabilitation exercises and therapist treatments for the disabled children.

So please spend about couple minutes to read how you can help me, where your money and investment will go, and other tasks I'll be performing at the orphanage.

Thank you so much for your love and support!

A big hug from me to you,
Ava Van

Hi everyone,

I have 2 new updates to share with you.

1. As many of you know, my trip was postponed due to some health issues I've been facing, but the trip will still happen and it'll be soon as March 2013.

Even though I'm still in the process to been seen by a specialist, I'm very eager to meet these kiddos. Maybe being with them will make me better :)

2. I've received $2,000 in donations so far, meaning I'm $1,000 away from my goal.

I'M SO CLOSE.

In the spirit of Christmas, I hope you can help me make this trip possible by sharing my fundraising website on your Facebook.

Let's send me to Vietnam!

Thank you in advance for your love and support.

Xo,
Ava
