Dear Family and Friends,

Greetings! I hope that this letter finds you and your family well. I am now in my second year of college, studying Biochemistry and Chinese. School is challenging, but I enjoy every part of the experience! I am writing this letter to ask you for your help. On January 3rd, 2015, I will be departing on a medical brigade with MEDLIFE Boston College Chapter to Cusco, Peru, for 10 days. I will be working directly with physicians, pharmacists, and nurses to provide one-on-one assistance to patients who do not have access to healthcare. The area that I am going to work in is a poor part of the country, and it would mean so much for me to be able to take care of the residents there. The purpose of this trip is to promote general health education and contribute towards the completion of community development, hygiene, and school projects. For more information on what MEDLIFE is, you can visit its website at www.medlifeweb.org.

I am truly excited about the opportunity to serve, and I am seeking your support in making this possible. I have approximately two months to fundraise $2,500. This mission trip means so much to me, and I would be most gracious if you can help me out! If you know me in any way, you would understand how important this brigade is to my career path and how I would love to leave an impact on the world in any way possible. Even the smallest donation counts towards something genuinely significant in my life as well as lives of those in need. Thank you so much for taking the time in reading my letter! Please help me out!

With love and warm regards,
Elisa Kang
