We want to offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported our Habitat El Salvador fundraising project. Your support and contributions played a crucial role in this process and we literally could not have done it without you.
Thanks to 46 separate donations we were able raise $8,075! That is 115% of our $7,000 goal!
This trip has been such a positive and life-altering experience for previous students and we're excited to be heading out in just a few weeks. With these funds we have been able to purchase plane tickets for each of the six students. This removes a substantial financial burden for these students who will be working and learning during this 10-day program.
Additionally, because of your generous contributions, we will be able to help students cover the airfare cost on the next trip (May 2019). We will then work with those students participating in 2019 to fundraise to cover the cost of flights for the next group in 2021--it will be a “pay it forward” system that was made possible by all of you!
Thanks again for your support—we’ll be in touch with pictures and updates once we get back!
