I have been awarded an extraordinary and selective opportunity! In March of this year I will be traveling to Jacmel Haiti to participate in a community nursing internship! This exciting internship partners with the Nonprofit organization called Love Takes Roots. The Denver School of Nursing faculty member leading this internship, Barb Wilkerson, is a pediatric nurse practioner  and she started this organization with her husband Dr. Rick Wilkerson. Please check out their website: http://lovetakesroots.org. Denver School of Nursing has partnered with Love Takes Roots for the past two years and it has been through generous donorations of supporters like you that allowed a new orphanage in Jacmel Haiti to replace the orphange destroyed by the earthquake in 2010. Our internship will focus on transitioning the 50 Haitian orphans into the newly constructed orphanage and providing clinical care for the orphans and surrounding community. While on the internship we will scrub into surgery and assist Dr. Wilkerson in surgical needs of the community as well. Most importantly, our goal is to empower Haitian health care providers while teaching preventative healthcare practices in order to enable families to thrive independently long after our departure! I am so grateful for this chance to contribute my nursing skills on a global level and would be deeply honored if you would partner with me to raise funds to help me get there and support the work of Love Takes Roots! All funds for flights, housing and medical outreach supplies are due to Denver School of Nursing on Febuary 1st. My goal is to raise $2000 in the next 23 days! This money will cover the flights to Haiti and more importantly it will provide needed funds to donate medical supplies, equipment, and program support for the Love Taked Root orphange in 2014. Every dollar helps! I would love to keep you posted as I prepare for, attend and return from this life changing experience. Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or any questions you might have! Thank you for all your help!!!
