Adam's Trip to Change the World :]

Hey everyone.  Your good friend Adam here :]

I have an incredible opportunity to use my experience in film and photography and working with kids with disabilities in South America!

I hope you can partner with me to change the lives of the people in Paraguay and Peru :]

My Background:

If you don't already know I have worked with kids with disabilities since 2001.  When I moved to San Diego I went to work with an autism agency for 10 years teaching ABA therapy to kids with autism.  Due to an unfortunate incident I hurt my knee and had to leave that occupation behind.  

I then pursued photo and video work and God has blessed this endeavor immensely. 

I wanted to still be able to use my gifts and knowledge in the field of autism and reached out to a local non-profit here in San Diego that runs out of my church.

Funny thing is they posted that they needed a media personel to take photos and videos of their events/mission trips.

When I heard this I was like "Wow! This combines both my love for kids with disabilities and photo/video!"

So I reached out to them and shared with them my life story.

Miracle 139 International goes to developing countries to help teach and empower teachers to help them with children with disabilities.

They have a need for behavior specialists and a media person and I happen to be able to fill both those needs.  I truly believe this is something I was groomed for over these many years.  So I have decided to take a step out in faith and head on down to Paraguay and Peru to help.

Both of these trips will be back to back in August 2017.

While I wish I could make this trip free of financial burden, I am calling on you and other friends and families to be part of this journey with me :]

Here is where your donation would be at work!

$20 - 3 square meals a day.

$100 - Food for 1 week

$250 - Cover basic at home costs (bills/portion of rent)

$300 - Supplies/materials for Teachers

$500 - Transportation costs in both Paraguay and Peru

$1000 - Room and Board for 1 month

$2500 - Plane ticket to one location.

$5000 - Plane tickets to both Paraguay and Peru

$10,000 - Fully fund entire trip!

I can't wait to share with you all the photos and videos I will get to document while I'm there so you will be able to see Paraguay and Peru exactly through my eyes.

I look forward to us, YOU and I, partnering in helping those that need it so dearly.

Cheers my angels.

-Adam
