Thank you!!

April 15, 2018

From our Oaxacan Family to yours, we would like to thank you for supporting our efforts. This trip was truly a once in a lifetime experience. On our trip, we had the honor of being immersed in a culture that was vibrant and full of life. The best part was the service we provided and the people we met along the way. By the end of this trip, everyone we had met had become family to us. We have you to thank for all that.

 

We did it! We went to Oaxaca!!!

 

Last chance to to support our trip!

Dear Friends,

 

Thank you to everyone who has already made a gift and contributed towards our cause. We are anxiously awaiting the departure for our trip and are sending out a final message to please make your gift today if you have not already done so. Again, these funds will ensure that we have the resources to provide travel accommodations and food for everyone participating in this service learning experience.

 

If you've already made a contribution, you can still make an impact by forwarding this e-mail or sharing our page on social media to spread awareness as we prepare for this culturally enriching experience for our students here at SJSU. We are 60% of the way to our goal and every dollar helps!

 

Once again, we thank you for your support and appreciate your time!!

Dear Friends,

 

Thank you once again!  With your help, we are halfway towards our goal!  Thank you for all of your support! Please keep spreading the word and sharing our mission with your family and friends. We still have a few days left and we want to make sure that all of our classmates have the meals, travel arrangements, and housing accommodations needed to be included on this trip!

 

We need your support now more than ever and no donation is too small (or big for that matter). Thank you so much for giving our funding the kick start it needed, every bit helps!

 

Thank you!

We're excited to share this!

Friends, family, and supporters,

 

Thanks to everyone’s generous donations, we have raised nearly $1,390 in just under a week! We have less than a week to raise as much as possible. We would like to thank everyone who has supported our cause!

 

Our group is excited to spend spring break working closely with the leaders of Arrazola, Oaxaca and want to make sure our work is meaningful to them! Recently, we have been preparing to buy the supplies we need to run our various health programs. Our week of service learning will be unforgettable! Our work will involve volunteering at food banks, running health programs and we will have the privilege to work with CANICA. This program aims to help families who, due to their financial situation, send their children as young as 3 to sell candy in the streets. The work we will do with CANICA, will help support families and give them the opportunity to become financially stable enough to send their children to school. We are looking forward to learning how to provide care to a different community from our own, one that has been kind enough to embrace us for the past 14 years.

 

We are so excited and grateful to everyone who has donated and shown their support. Please share our cause by forwarding this e-mail or sharing the link to our page on social media and let everyone know that you supported “Vamos a Oaxaca!”.

 

Thank you all again for all of the support!
