Hello, everyone, I don`t normally blog in the middle of the week, but the leader of our India trip asked me if I would. Our trip is coming up in less than three weeks, and as I`ve stated before, besides paying for our own transportation to and from India, volunteer fee, and travel within India, we need to raise $15,000 in building supplies for the actual houses we`ll be building. Every single penny of that will go into the supplies only, nothing else. These concrete homes will give the Dalits (formally known as untouchables) permanant housing, very important during the monsoon season. This will increase their health, social status, and ability to provide for their families. If you would like to donate or just learn more about the trip, you can go to this link http://www.golongitude.org/www/JET_March_2010.html.
You needn`t feel like you can only donate a lot; even a little bit helps and is grately appreciated. And of course even more than donating, your prayers are always appreciated!
