Dear Mr and Mrs I have just finished my sophomore year at Kent State University where I am studying to be an Architect. I am in the Honors College where they encourage us to volunteer for extracurricular charity work. I am excited about an opportunity I have to travel to work in HAITI this June with Dr Brad Henderson and a group of college students through the Pittsburgh Kids Foundation. We will be volunteering at the EBAC Orphanage where we will conduct a week-long Bible camp for the orphans and neighboring children from the nearby villages . We will also do any necessary physical labor and deliver food and clothes to the needy families in the area. Kent State will recognize this trip and I will receive Honors Credit toward my graduation requirements. This will be my first trip out of the US and I am sure I will learn many valuable lessons from this travel experience and from the Haitian culture. I am excited to use my artistic talents during the Bible Camp, and I hope to design a mural for the orphanage to enjoy for many years to come. I am writing to you to ask if you would like to donate to my trip, as I am responsible for raising $1400 for my travel and food expenses. Any financial gift would be greatly appreciated. If you choose to do so, please address your tax deductible checks to the Pittsburgh Kids Foundation. I am also asking you to join me in praying for this trip. Please pray for safe travels and health for myself and our group. Also, pray for our camp to be successful in sharing God’s love with the Haitian people who have suffered many loses in the last year. Join me in thanking the Lord for this chance to expand my horizon while helping the orphans. “This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress…… James 1:27 a.
