I have been asked by a non-profit organization called Advance Worldwide to join a team travelling to the middle east this August to provide aid and support to refugees. We will be partnering with an organization that is already established over there, which is working with thousands of refugees full time providing them with practical relief and resources, everything from medical attention to fitness/health and practical job training as well as mental, emotional, moral, and spritual support. They also have a small school for the kids, as they are not allowed to attend the local schools.
I am humbled and honored to have been asked and given the amazing opportunity to go for ten days to help run sports clinics for the kids, fitness clinics for kids and adults, and teach and train leaders to run these classes themselves. This is very exciting for me!
Because this will be a volunteer opportunity, I am asking you if your are willing and able to support me financially in this great opportunity?
I don't think we can even imagine what these people have been through and what it must mean to them to have people like me and you and others from all over the world who are willing to give time, money and support to them. I can't even fathom what it must be like for them.
I need to raise $3,500. The sooner the better. This will cover airfare, food, transportation and other expenses as well as supplies for our services that we can leave behind, meaning several pieces of small fitness equipment (for example resitance bands, other small fitness equipment and kids classroom materials(we also have nurses and teachers on out team).
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
I deeply appreciate your consideration and your taking the time to read this letter.
