On behalf of the St. Lawrence Youth Group in Watts, California, I am respectfully asking you to help them attend their first World Youth Day in Brazil. Our Youth Group is a great benefit to our parish community. Your donation will help ensure that our Youth attend this special event; where thousands of youth get together every year and be part of this adventure. The youth is really motivated in doing everything possible to attend this year. They have been working extremely hard with bake sales, car washes, chocolate sales, raffles, and nothing seemed to be working out. They started raising funds since last year 2011, and the deadlines are approaching with a $600 deposit for each person. So many youth are beginning to think that they are not capable of accomplishing this goal of attending World Youth Day in Brazil due to lack of funds. If St. Lawrence Youth Group in Watts, California is not able to attend this event; the youth are going to think that all the effort they are putting forth are a waste of time. Since they require a large amount of money their families don’t have or can’t afford to send them to BRAZIL. Some youth are getting discourage and parents are not supporting them with the funds. The youth want to be part of this ADVENTURE to experience an authentic, Catholic, youth pilgrimage. This will help the YOUTH GROUP become more motivated to set goals and have their faith grow, and be knowledgeable of the experiences they are going to come across, and just enjoy their summer in another country instead of being surrounded by violence’s, drugs, and gangs. They will be able to share their experience with the community, and inspire greatness in other youth. We need you to join us and to be part of this important event of having young teens attend World Youth Day. We believe that this event is an opportunity for our parish community to work together and strengthen our unity and ministry. There are various expenses in preparing for the event. With this in mind, we come to you for assistance in the way of monetary donations. Your generosity will help to diminish these expenses and increase the income from our series of fundraiser events for the benefit of our community youth group.
