I’m a freshman at Durham Academy, NC, and I have been raising money for charities every year since I was 5 years old. I would like to raise $2000 this year for Romanian Children’s Relief (RCR) – Inocenti. (www.rcr.org). This organization helps orphaned, handicapped and sick children get the medical and therapeutic care and educational support that they need. It is truly a loving organization and each year they help more than 2,000 abandoned and hospitalized children as well as children with special needs. My family and I have visited this organization about 6 years ago in Bucharest, Romania. I helped feed and play with the babies, and change their diapers. I have seen what the money I raised has done for the organization and it is very impactful. Many children are sick, and need medicine, vitamins, clean diapers and clothes. Their supplies are limited and very much dependent on donations such as yours. Your help is very crucial to these children’s survival. I have chosen to help RCR-Inocenti because I got to witness how much they have done for so many babies with so little funding. They need help and with your support to my effort, we can make a difference in these children’s lives!
Last year, I hiked Mount Kota Kinabalu to the summit (4095m), one of the tallest mountains in South East Asia. That was a two-day challenge that was both difficult and unforgettable. This year I will try hiking and backpacking the 72 miles Great Smokey Mountains traverse of the Appalachian Trail. This will take up to 6 days, and 5 nights. I will experience the highest point of the trail (Clingman’s Dome, 6,643 feet). This part is both considered the most difficult and beautiful part of the Appalachian Trail. This will be a new challenge for me!
Please consider supporting my effort by donating through my website. It’s very simple, fast, and secure.
I appreciate your generosity and kind support. Please feel free to spread the word!
With many THANKS,
