The organization that I will be volunteering with is called Learning Enterprises (Visit LE’s website: http://www.learningenterprises.org/index.php?id=114). It is a non-profit that is run entirely from top to bottom by student volunteers. LE does not ask for program fees from volunteers
and certainly not from the beneficiaries of the program, and does not exchange any money with local and international staff. Additionally, I will meet the travel costs myself. Because of this, LE and I depend on donations from family and friends to stay afloat. This year they will be sending volunteers to 11 countries, and can certainly use your support.
Living in a developing country is sure to be a strenuous experience, and I would love to have you in my support network throughout the experience. I hope you will consider supporting my organization financially, and if not, supporting me in this endeavor! Feel free to give me a call or email me (email@example.com) if you want to chat about LE or about my summer—or anything, really. I would love to hear from you!
Learning Enterprises is a 501(c)3 organization, so everything you pledge is completely tax deductible. Thank you so much for allowing me to update you on my upcoming summer experience!
