I am a junior at Clemson University, and recently got involved in our chapter of Students Helping Honduras (SHH), a nonprofit organization that sends volunteers to Honduras on eight-day service trips. 

The mission of SHH is "to build a movement of young leaders to empower orphaned and vulnerable children in Honduras." Since the founding of SHH in 2007, the organization has raised over $1 million for projects in Honduras. Clemson's Chapter of Students Helping Honduras has completed the building of two elementary schools in the rural villages of Primavera and Rio Chiquita. This summer, the Clemson Tigers received an award for the National Champions of Recruitment, bringing down 55 volunteers last winter. In March 2014, we will be returning to Honduras to work on a brand new school in a village close to El Progreso. I strongly believe that education plays a substantial role in fighting poverty. And today, I have the opportunity to be part of this effort and spend my spring break helping the children of Honduras. 

Having worked with kids most of my life, I've seen the vital role that education plays in early childhood development. I would love to help these less fortunate children and see them have the opportunity to obtain an education. I'd also enjoy experiencing the Honduran culture. Not only will our efforts benefit the children of Honduras, I believe the experience will help me appreciate what I have, and learn more about myself. 

So, this is where you come in. I'm a college student, and I'm of course broke. The cost of the trip is $650, plus airfare which is also $650. Unfortunately, I am unable to pull this out of pocket, and the expense of the trip is the only thing keeping me from being able to help hundreds of deserving children in Honduras. With this in mind, I am writing to ask you for a donation of any size, even if just a couple of dollars, to help us achieve our goal. The first half is due January 10, 2014. Please help by clicking the button below to make your donation of any amount. 

For more information about Clemson's SHH Chapter and its purpose, please visit their Facebook page You can contact me on my "Send Kristen to Honduras" Facebook page. I plan to keep my Facebook page updated throughout my journey so you can share the experience with me. 

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!
