This year do not buy me a fancy gift for my birthday. And I won’t ask you to pay for an expensive “What happens in Vegas…” weekend or fork out cash to pop over priced bottles on SoBe.  All that is lots of fun, but here is what I really want… ...

This year do not buy me a fancy gift for my birthday. And I won’t ask you to pay for an expensive “What happens in Vegas…” weekend or fork out cash to pop over priced bottles on SoBe.  All that is lots of fun, but here is what I really want…

December 30 - January 3, with your help I will set in motion a 30 hour attaché at the Jamaica National Children’s Home in Kingston, Jamaica.  Over 50 of my orphriends (orphans ages 7 – 20) will experience a festive New Year’s Dinner plus purpose driven “eXPerience” Exchanges facilitated by young professionals, like me, from Jamaica and the US. 

I need your help to make my 30th Birthday wish come true in the next 30 days.  

This is how you can help:

1, COME to JNCH, volunteer with me for 30 hours and lead an “eXPerience” Exchange sesson and help prepare New Year’s dinner for over 50 of my orphrieds.

Or

2. CONTRIBUTE to the cause by donating $30, $83, $300 in the next 30 days to fund ‘eXPerience’ Exchanges and New Year’s dinner for over 50 of my orphriends at JNCH.

Your contributions fund New Year’s dinner, access to technology, supplies and supplies for “eXPerience” Exchange sessions. 

And

3. SHARE my 30th Birthday wish with friends, colleagues, organizations and institutions that passionately provide skill-based international missions to the Caribbean or which can provide additional resources to make my 30th birthday wish come true. 

Please make your investment by using FUNDRAZR (powered by PayPal & WePay) or contributing directly to me in person.

Your generosity can really help someone AND that is the best gift I could ever ask for.

 

Why now?

I can’t help thinking that the money spent on gifts and lavish outings could go to my orphriends who need it more than I do AND Because turning 30 should be celebrated in a grand way.  Because 30 is Mass Junction; an interaction of time, when the past and the present synergize; maximizing the future.  Because young people deserve to eXPerience a meaningful and self-actualized adulthood. Because I have a responsibility as a global citizen.Because the time is NOW.

 

What is an “eXPerience” Exchange?

An eXPerience Exchange is facilitated by a “teacher” whom provides students with an engaging, entertaining and educational program or activity on a particular topic. “Teaches” can be farmers, chemists, social entrepreneurs, beekeepers, surfers, engineers, or just about anyone whom is keeper of their craft.  An eXPerience Exchange teacher can be someone who has experienced life in a unique way. eXPerience Exchange teachers are thinkers, innovators and curators of life and learning.  In eXPerience Exchanges the teacher inspires others by passing on their learnings through a creative program or activity that evokes the magical “Aha” moment.
