Mission trip to Haiti!

The Haiti Earthquake on January 12th 2010 was the worst natural disaster to strike the Western Hemisphere in the past century, estimates of the number of casualties are as high as 200,000, more than one million people were left homeless, and hundreds of thousands were injured....

Dear Family & Friends,

I have been invited to participate on a Mission trip to Haiti, with a team of medical professionals going with a charitable organization, that is a Christian non-profit corporation.
The trip is August 7th -August 15th 2010! The Haiti Earthquake Aid & Relief Transformation. Objectives include medical care, outreach to children, and light construction. I will be working with the medical team, assisting with supplies and in the pharmacy, as well as with the outreach to children.. I will also be documenting the trip with my camera for the other volunteers and the organization.
I want to display the good being done by the volunteers so that more people will get involved and donate time, money, supplies. I want to show the devastation of the people and country so everyone realizes how much still needs to be done there. Mostly, I want to capture the hope in the eyes of the people of Haiti, I want others to see how incredibly grateful they are to have volunteers there helping them...
The total cost for the trip is $1600.00. This includes airfare, transportation, lodging and food. I am going to cover as much as I can for the chance to go. Some very wonderful fellow photographers are volunteering their time and talent and we are planning a portrait session event, with proceeds going to this trip. I am also asking for donations. Any donation in any amount will be greatly appreciated! I have been going back and forth trying to decide if we could afford such a trip. As you can see, I have decided I have to. I can go, and help these people, & document their struggle and their survival. I don't want to be 80 years old, looking back on my life, and have regrets about this. I want to go, I want to help, I want to make some kind of difference. I am blessed with a wonderful family, amazing friends, and I'm pretty healthy! I can't let fears hold me back, and I really cannot let $1600 hold me back! I am actually praying that I will be able to participate in future trips as well. Any donation will help but I do understand if you may not be able to donate at this time. Please instead support me with your thoughts and prayers, as well as passing this letter along to others who may be able to help. Thank you : )

If you would like your donation to be tax deductable, you can donate directly to the foundation on my behalf. Contact me for more infomation.
