Family and Friends!!

I hope this message finds you well in this exciting and happy time of year with the holidays rapidly approaching.  I am writing to let you know that after a competitive application process, I have been selected to travel to Haiti with the Denver School of Nursing to provide support and clinical care for an orphanage!  This exciting internship partners with the Non-profit organization, Love Takes Root. The Denver School of Nursing faculty member leading our internship, Barb Wilkerson, is a pediatric nurse practitioner and she started this organization with her husband Dr. Rick Wilkerson. Please check out their amazing cause at: http://lovetakesroot.org Denver School of Nursing has partnered with Love Takes Root for the past two years and the generous donations of supporters like you allowed a new orphanage to be built in Jacmel, Haiti to replace the orphanage destroyed by the Earth Quake in 2010. Our internship will focus on transitioning the 50 Haitian orphans into the newly constructed orphanage and providing clinical care for the orphans and surrounding community. While on the internship we will scrub into surgery and assist Dr. Wilkerson in the surgical needs of the community as well. Most importantly, our goal is to empower Haitian health care providers while teaching preventative healthcare practices in order to enable these families to thrive independently long after our departure! I am so grateful for this chance to contribute my nursing skills on a global level and would be deeply honored if you would partner with me to raise funds to help me get there and support the work of Love Takes Root! All funds for flights, housing, and medical outreach supplies are due to Denver School of Nursing on February 1st.

My goal is to raise $2500 in the next 50 days! This money will cover the flights to Haiti and more importantly it will provide needed funds to donate medical supplies, equipment, and program support for the Love Takes Root orphanage in 2014. Every dollar helps. I would love to keep you posted as I prepare for, attend, and return from this life changing experience. Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or any questions you might have! Thank you so much for your support!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
