I am heading to a rural coastal community in Manzanillo, Nicaragua at the end of February with other salesforce.com employees and partnering with a non-profit organization called "Surf for Life" to spend 5 full days helping to build a sustainable high school (there will be other weeks too). I was inspired to join this project as a traveler who's visited many different countries and been fortunate enough to experience the amazing culture and kindness of people in coastal communities like Manzanillo. Now, it's time to give back in a way I believe is a key to unlocking future opportunities for these kids - education!!

The new high school will not only provide daily classes for kids whose education typically ends after 6th grade, but will also offer technical courses for young adults such as mechanics, cooking, and small business. Surf for Life focuses on doing social good in coastal communities around the world that all visitors, surfers and non-surfers alike, have been able to enjoy.

I am paying for my flight and recreational expenses as well as donating to this project personally, but I need your help to cover my project costs for tools and building materials.

Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated!!

Here’s a video of Salesforce volunteers in action this past October on a similar project in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica: http://vimeo.com/57759638
