8 Oregon college students are trying to raise money to help some very impoverished people in Cape Verde Africa. You'd be helping so many!!

My name is Jordan Meyers and I'm a college student at Western Oregon University. Me and 8 other students are going on a service trip to a few impoverished areas of Cape Verde, Islands off the west coast of Africa. We are going to assist in refurbishing a girls' home; where young woman go to seek help because they have no help or money to live comfortably themselves, or are too young. And also a boys home. They need very basic stuff done, like getting there floor fixed, some fences built to keep them safe, walls rebuilt possibly. Anything many of us take for granted like a working computer; they do not have one. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible. We leave for Cape Verde Dec. 9th and are returning Dec. 22nd. All donations are tax refundable. If you contact me I will be able to give you a tax ID upon receiving your donation. This is a really great cause and it would be unbelievably amazing if this site turned out to be useful, please help. This particular trip could end up helping over 50 people; maybe even more.
