Hi friends! I'm fundraising for a service trip to New Orleans called ServeUP (Urban Plunge). For the 7th 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.

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.

Students are required to fund all costs associated with this trip and donations or contributions of small or large amounts are welcome and appreciated. The fees for this program is $525, but I would like to raise $1050 (the cost of two people going on this trip) to raise money for two of my non-christian friends on this amazing faith based service trip. I want them to experience what I experienced in my walk with God. Thank you!

Your support is greatly appreciated!
