Hello family, friends, and acquaintances!

As you may have already gathered, I am about to embark upon a pretty amazing journey. I’m picking up and shipping off to Korogwe, Tanzania in August 2014 to serve as a volunteer Project Coordinator. Before I do, I need your help to get me there!

In Tanzania, I’ll be living and working in a rural village in the Usambara Mountains on 2Seeds' Bungu Project. I will be working with smallholder farmers, and my role will be to help these farmers with planting and harvesting, organizing community meetings, managing funds for projects, accessing new markets, and a million other little things. Before I head out, though, I need to raise $8,000. This money will not only get me to Tanzania and support my living costs, but it will also help to provide funding for agricultural projects within my village.

One of the biggest worries with donating to nonprofits these days is that so much of a donor’s money goes to overhead and/or gets spent unwisely. Fear not, though, potential donor. Resource stewardship is of the utmost importance to me and to the organization for which I will be working. When you invest in my project, the only person that touches the money is me. I am responsible for 100% of the $8,000 you help me raise, and I’ll be sending each of my donors a report every six months to let you know how your funds are getting spent.

In the months leading up to my August departure, I hope you’ll consider investing in my project. I’m excited to start this adventure, learn some Swahili, head to a new continent, and most of all, I’m excited to create meaningful, impactful partnerships in my village. With your help, we're going to make amazing things happen. Thank you for your support!

Love & Peace,

-Whitney
