Emails from the Peace Corps, No. 17

  • Jun. 1st, 2009 at 6:15 PM
I'm awful. Absolutely awful. I haven´t written and I apologize. And, I apologize in advance because I`m not actually writing this time either. I`m just begging for money.

So, it's that time of year again... We're doing our diversity and leadership camp in August! And, of course, without money there will be no camp. I`m co-directing the camp this year (woo, responsiblity!) and I really believe that Dominican youth benefit from the different activities we have at camp including disability charlas, american culture charlas, hatian history charlas and much much more. It is also a great opportunity for youth to be somewhere other than their village... for some it will be the first time.

So, please help me if you can. I know things aren`t so good in the states with the economic down turn. All donations are tax deductable. Every volunteer needs to raise about $150. So, if you could give up your morning coffee one morning and donate the money to camp it would be really appreciated. Anything... $5, $10.

If you´d like to donate a check instead of doing it electronically here´s the FAQ about that:

I don't want to donate online - how else can I donate?

Although donating on-line is the fastest way for Volunteer projects to get funded, you may also donate by mail or over the phone:

Send a check to:
Peace Corps Headquarters
Office of Private Sector Initiatives
1111 20th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20526

Please make check payable to Peace Corps Partnership Program
Please also note the project number, Special Fund name, or Country Fund name in the memo section of the check.
(Please print and mail this donation form with your check, so we may contact you with information regarding your donation, if necessary.)


Call the office and we can take credit card information over the phone (1-800-424-8580 x2170)



LOVE! I swear I`ll write soon. I`ll be in Central America until June 21st.


Kisses and Hugs,
