Hi my name is Shelby Zickert, and I am raising money to be able to go on a mission trip to help children in Haiti. Please show your support!

I want to share with you the dream that I would love to be able to achieve.

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to give back and loved to get
people gifts even if I made it at the last minute out of some sticks,
glue, and some paper. I have always been someone who wants to give
back.

My Uncle and Aunt adopted their amazing little boy from Haiti. They
have had an eye opening experience and have started taking mission
trips there to help the people of Haiti. They have done things from
helping dig up rocks to make trenches, to playing with the children
from the orphanages and many other things, basically anything to help
out the people of Haiti and help spread the word of God.

Since they have been taking yearly mission trips, I haven't had the
opportunity to go. This will be the first year that I will have an
chance to go-- with the help of anyone willing to donate toward this
cause. Not everyone has a chance to go on a trip like this because of
the cost. With the help of everyone out there who is willing to
donate , I will be able to participate in this mission trip to help
the people of Haiti. All of you will be part of it by helping me to
have this opportunity, to go help and spread the word of God.

For anyone willing to help, I would be happy to keep you updated on
the process and the stories of what we are doing. After the trip, I
can personally send you a letter or picture and share my experience
with you and how I was able to reach out and help the people of Haiti.

Your donation will help me pay for the $1,000 trip costs, the $150
passport fee and then $50 for shots that will be necessary to take the trip.
If I'm lucky enough to earn more than I need, all of the rest of the
money will be donated to a cause in Haiti. All of the extra funds
will either be given to the orphanage to help with food and supplies
or to another organization in Haiti that might need the money. Every
penny will be given to help the people of Haiti somehow. .

The trip will take place in March 2013, although the down payment of
$500 will be due in January 2013. Those of you who can help, thank
you all so much! You will be helping a good cause and the people of
Haiti will be very thankful. I hope you all will participate in making
this dream come true and helping people in need.

From the bottom of my heart thank you all so much!

Love you all,
Shelby Zickert
