Volunteer, Travel, Volunteer some more, Go Home.

From Alex Nelson

I am raising money for travel funds as I volunteer in Ireland, and then Baton Rouge, with the Louisiana Flood Recovery Project. Donations go towards the cost of food, transportation, hostels, and recreational activities.

More Info

I am currently in Callan, Ireland; volunteering at a recently opened and family owned cafe. I have been here since mid September working as a: cook, front of house/barista, and general maintenance. I will soon be leaving for Dublin to assist a family in the renovation of their new home. At the end of November I will be flying back to the United States to join the All Hands Organization in Baton Rouge for the month of December; as a part of their Louisiana Flood Recovery Project. The focus being on repairing homes devestated during the floods. At this stage in the project the work will include: muck and guts, installing drywall and insulation, mold sanitation, and finish carpentry: painting, flooring, doors, trim, cabinets, and bathroom fixtures. Depending on demand for volunteers and my own personal obligations, I may continue onto Disaster Relief in Texas or Florida. Afterwards I would like to return home to see family, friends, and really settle for the first time in a year and a half.

Your donations will Fund my:

Continuing travels and volunteer work in Ireland for the month of November.

As well as: food, transportation (flights, public transport, taxis), hostels, travel insurance, and the occasional recreational activities.
