I have been selected as part of Fordham University's GO! El Salvador program. Please give generously and help me get to El Salvador!

Global Outreach is part of Fordham’s Campus Ministry. Our mission is to offer students the opportunity to experience the richness of a new culture, the realities of poverty, and that faith can be lived through Christian service. Global Outreach (GO!) has over twenty-five mission trips all over the world. All of the GO! trips are based on four pillars: spirituality, simple living, solidarity, and social justice. Team members spend a great deal of time preparing for the project by getting to know one another through learning about the language and the culture of the trip’s site, exploring our own personal spirituality, and especially by completing service work with and for our brothers and sisters around the world.
I, along with the other 11 members of my group, will be traveling to El Salvador from January 3- January 15, 2012 and working with the organization CRISPAZ to promote peace and establish projects of solidarity and sustainability within the community to help prevent El Salvador's extreme poverty. During our time in El Salvador we will be staying with families in the community, emphasizing our mission of simple living and community. Before we go our team must raise $21,000 to cover the flight and extremely modest living expenses for 12 people. To meet this goal, we have started a letter writing campaign, and appreciate any support that can be given to our project.

Donations can also be made by check. Checks are tax deductible and can be made out to:

C/O Campus Ministry

Bronx, NY 10458

Please write my name and G.O. El Salvador on the memo section of the check so that the money gets directed to the right place.

Thanks so much!
