Hi friends! I'm fundraising for a service trip to New Orleans called ServeUP (Urban Plunge) on March 7th-16th. For the 8th year in a row, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Boston University is taking a team from BU on an alternative spring break trip to New Orleans, a city still recovering from the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. This will be my third time going! :) <3

In the past, we have joined with other New England schools and worked with Habitat for Humanity, helped out a local urban farm, build houses, and tutored kids in an after school program. During the days we'll be working in the communities and at night we will be hearing from speakers & engaging in discussions about service & faith. We will be looking at the teachings of Jesus and discussing what the Christian faith might have to say about service & justice. 

The vision of ServeUP (UP stands for Urban Project) is bring together a diverse group of students to serve together & have open & honest discussions about community, service, and faith as we look at the teachings of Jesus and what the Christian faith might have to say.

The fees for this program is $497, which includes transportation, loding, work tools, and meals, but I would like to raise as much as I can to support other students that are going on this trip as well. Please consider supporting me on this amazing adventure!

Love,

Christine
