About my Fundraiser
"For I know the plans I have for you," Declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future" - Jeremiah 29:11

Together, we share one hope to change the lives for deaf children in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. This culture considers being deaf a curse. A CURSE! As a deaf person, I know for a fact we are not cursed, but blessed! We are capable of anything we dream of or want in life. Everyone everywhere has a right to believe this. This is why we are going. As the first group including us few deaf, we can open their eyes and their heart to love for who they are. Like us, like them, we are not cursed, but blessed. The funds contributed through this page will go towards helping the two of us acheive this trip. Though God shares his love for us all, it's through the love people share with us that we understand His love. Going on this trip will open us up to sharing the love God has given us to people who may not experience this. The journey will change our views on the world and teach us to grow in so many new ways while we interact and change lives with children accross the ocean. Our gifts of patience and teaching with children can be put to use in places more than just our hometowns. There is no greater gfit than sharing our fruits with those, and with the adventure of a new community and culture to challenge how we share these fruits and gifts. 

Help us make this trip happen so we can change not only our lives, but the lives of these children as well.
Thank you, for your time and contribution.
