A Request

10 weeks to go. The end is in sight. How did this happen?! I don’t know. One day I’m helping clean out the classrooms and learning how to write lesson plans and then next I’m starting to wonder how I’m going to fit all my stuff in my suitcase.
But today, I am writing to you with a request, because I need your help. As many of you know, I did not do any fundraising. I wanted to make this happen on my own, without asking for money. But now I find myself in a tight spot, with living expenses being higher here than anticipated.
As a refresher, I am a volunteer for Our Little Roses (www.ourlittleroses.org); an organization that brings hope to girls who have come from compromising situations, abusive homes and/or abandonment. There are around 70 girls in this home ranging in age from infants to 18 years old. The home sees that they are fed, given an education and are cared for. The home also has a school open to the community. I teach 4-6th grade reading and spelling five days a week to 50 students. I also tutor at the home three days a week and just hang out….usually playing soccer and getting my butt kicked.
Here’s what my goal is. For the next two and half months I would need $500. If I am thankfully able to reach that goal and go beyond it, I will donate the remainder directly to the home where there are many needs.
My needs are as follows:
1. Groceries
2. House expenses (internet, trash, cleaning supplies etc.)
3. Glasses (I lost my last pair and need a new ones)

Anything you can contribute would be wonderful. Thank you for your support, your prayers, and your love. Living in this country has not been easy and my work is bloody hard, but being with the girls makes it worth it. And that is what you’d be giving me, the confidence to continue my work here and end with a bang. If you know anyone who would be interested in donating don’t hesitate to pass along my link!
Love from San Pedro Sula, Honduras,
Emily
