This is Project Colombia. Raising money for a trip to Colombia to help the familes affected by the drug trade. Please show you support!

A small trip with a huge purpose!

Colombia is on the rise from the days of cartels running the streets and drug trafficing destroying their lives. But behind the tourist hot spots and bikini beaches still lie's its problem's. Many families and their children have been affected by the cartels and the grusome drug trade. Most of witch are still being affected by it. Children are abandond on the streets and parents stuggle to feed themselves.

I am a 21 year old college student with a passion for speaking and reaching out to people who are in greater need then I! This opportunity to fly to Colombia came knocking at my door about 3 weeks ago. Having a family member that is currently teaching English in Bogota Colombia, he has seen first hand the effects of the drugs and poverty in the country. Offering me to come down and reach out to those in need. Really struck a cord in myslelf. I am only one person and one person really cant do much to fix the damage of the past 10 years. But I am one person who wants to make a difference in a big way!

Starting small I plan on traveling to numerous shelters and not so very nice places in the country. Providing basic things like toys, water, books, sporting equipment, and a small message saying how people can overcome anything in their live's. Because I HAVE!

Being a college student the only way I could afford this trip would be selling my car. Being that my car is the only way I can get to school and work, that is no longer an option.

I am starting this fundraiser and planning this trip not for myself but for the people we all would be helping out! My goal is to reach $4,000 before I embark on this journey. The donations would cover a round trip plane ticket, living expenses to live abroad for 30 days and the rest will go to the familes and children.

Like I said it is a small trip but a has a huge purpose! I am not apart of a non profit organization, Though one day I would love to start one. I am just a guy that wants to make a difference in a big way. Not asking for $50,000 to go build a church in Colombia. I am asking for the support of $4,000 to get my feet wet and begin this journey to help people in need!

if you have any questions about the trip and the stops that I will be making. Please feel free to email me anytime! benroberts699@gmail.com.
