Help us get to Cochabamba, Bolivia for a Global Outreach service immersion project!

Dear friends and family,

We have created this fundraising page to help offset the costs of a ten day service trip that we will be a part of this summer through Fordham University's Global Outreach program. GO is highly selective in choosing students to be a part of these experiences, and the twelve of us were fortunate to have been chosen to the Bolivia team.

In Bolivia, through our partnership with Community Links, we will be staying with host families while learning about the economic, environmental, and social injustice issues that affect the people of Cochabamba. We will also be helping out in the local community and neighborhood elementary school.

We're all excited about this opportunity and passionate about making a difference in our world. It is not every day that we get to experience a whole new culture and place so different from our own. Many of us applied to Global Outreach so that we could step out of our comfort zones, and for some, this trip to Bolivia is the first step in "setting the world on fire," in the words of St. Ignatius Loyola.

The total cost of this trip is $2,000 per team member. As you can imagine, this is more than most undergraduate students have in their bank accounts. Throughout the last couple weeks, we have conducted several fundraising activities to raise money, but we must also rely on donations from family and friends. Please consider supporting this cause. Any little bit helps and is greatly appreciated! If you would rather mail a check or want a tax-deductible receipt, please contact one of us.

Thank you for visiting our page! We'll keep you updated on our journey.

Love,

The GO Bolivia Team!
