The Story

Words simply cannot express how much I appreciate your generous support towards my fundraiser. I have always dreamed of volunteering in Africa in hopes to help the less fortunate and to seek a better understanding of this world that I know so little of. It was the most challenging yet the most fulfilling six months of my life.

Your donation has given me the unique opportunity to not only physically teach in a small farming village in Ghana, but I was also able to research, plan, organize, execute, and oversee a variety of school improvement projects. I was so fortunate to be able to help the way I did all because of your donations and love.

I am writing this as a sincere thank you for your donations. You have made a meaningful impact to these children’s lives, and the impact will continue for years and generations to come.

Reached 90% of my fundraising goal! $440 to go before July 1st! :o

It still amazes me how much support I have been receiving! Thank you all for believing in me and in my mission in Ghana, Africa! Thank you for being a part of this exciting and meaningful journey! 

I had never done a fundraiser before. The thought of reaching out to others for money supporting something that I believe in with no direct or tangible benefits to others seemed so intimidating and difficult. Yet, I pushed through my insecurity and fear, and I glad I have done it. I am very humbled by this experience. I have learned so much about myself and the world. I have learned that there is so much love around!

With or without donating, I thank you for spending the time to learn about what I am passionate about. I want to devote my life to improve the world. Either it's bringing light into others' lives, improving lives through education, or empowering others to achieve their dreams. I know I am headed into the right direction because my heart rejoices everyday. 

17 days till departure for Ghana. I am working as much as I can save up funds for this trip. Thank you so much for helping me make this trip less of a financial burden. I am also thrilled to be finding out how I can best help the children and the community by using part of the the donated funds. I promise your donations will be well allocated. 

I love you all! I am forever grateful for your support and love. Your kindness is with me and will be passed on to many lives that I have the previlege to touch.

Love,
Avy
