My life has been blessed with love, family, friendships, a good education and so much more. I’ve never experienced true hardships. Yet there are millions around the world whom are deprived of these simple blessings.

Dear Family and Friends,

Recently, I’ve been humbly granted an incredible opportunity to visit the Anbarasi Orphanage Home in Tamil Nadu, India on behalf of Whole Foods Market. We will be doing project work and playing with the children. I will be visiting many impoverished areas of India to learn, experience and appreciate the beauty of life and culture. Not only will I be working with young children. Also we will be visiting Microcredit clients (mostly women). Whole Planet Foundation ( supports Grameen Trust with a $1.3 million grant for its microcredit initiatives outside of Bangladesh. Grameen Trust has a project in Kerala, India. This region of India is where Whole Foods Market sources a variety of products including cashews, spices and tea. We will meet microcredit clients, tour cashew production and packaging facility in Kerala, and learn about traditional Indian cuisine.

How it works is Whole Foods Market covers the cost of our accommodations, activities, and food but we’re asked to pay for our flights. Money raised will go to flight expenses as well as treats for the children at the Children’s Home.

My hopes are that I might be able to have some small impact on these children and women - even if only by providing hope and inspiration to them. By learning more about their culture and the process of micro-loans; I hope I can a have a hand in empowering these women to heed their entrepreneurial spirit to lift themselves out of poverty.

Any amount you would be willing to contribute to my cause is very much appreciated. I hope one day, I might be able to support you in achieving your dreams, just as you have done for me.

Much appreciation & gratitude,
