As part of my social service worker program and because of my interest in helping those in need I have been selected to take part in the George Brown College International Placement opportunity. I'm proud to have been selected as this is a limited opportunity not available to all students who apply. While in Cuba I will be living and working with those less fortunate than myself. I will be meeting with various community based organizations which provide services to the Cuban people. This is a great opportunity to increase cross cultural experiences.

 

This where I need your help.

 

To achieve this learning experience, I am required to fundraise to cover the cost of my flight, accommodation, meals and supplies while supporting the organizations that we will be assisting while in Cuba.

 

This placement affords me the opportunity to live and work closely with the Cuban people developing myself as a future social worker.

 

I am requesting your assistance and generosity to make this once in a lifetime opportunity a reality. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. I am also having a fundraiser on April 18th at the Amsterdam Bicycle Club (next door to the Old Spaghetti Factory). I look forward to seeing you there and thank you for your generosity.

Thanks,
