This is off-topic, but very important to me. My good friend Adam Maya of the Orange County Register, the UCLA blogger, is traveling to Haiti as part of a 14-person group to serve at an orphanage for seven days. I told him I would post this email on the blog, and to be sure, every denarius does indeed count.
As you know, very soon I will be going to Haiti as part of a disaster relief team with Hope World Wide. I’m part of a team of 14 people who will be serving in an orphanage with about 120 children, attending to four severe needs: Medical and health-related care; psychology, social work, and counseling; construction and building; teaching, computer, and educational training.
I will be in Haiti from June 12-19. The total budget of the trip, which includes transportation, food, supplies, a large donation to the orphanage, and incidentals, will be about $2,000. I wanted to see if you would like to help me donate to the cause and change lives in Haiti. Of course, any support you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. Every denarius counts.
