Happy New Year! We are excited to say that we are beginning to plan Sparkes of Hope Summer Camp 2016. Our camp fundraiser will be launched in March, so stay tuned. In the meantime, we have lots of things to organize and prepare for camp, but we really need your HELP! As you know, all donations to Sparkes of Hope go directly to Youth Upliftment International to support the students of Collège Amélioration Jeunesse. For the past 2 years, our family and all our volunteers have paid out of their own pockets for their flights and accommodation to volunteer at Sparkes of Hope Summer Camp. In the first year, we both flew as children which helped with the cost. We also received a generous gift from loved ones to help pay for our flights. This year, both my Jane and I will be over 13 and have to pay adult fare and accommodation. We have tried repeatedly to ask airlines and travel agencies to support Sparkes of Hope to no avail. If there is ANYONE who knows ANYONE in the travel industry who could help us, please contact us. We would greatly appreciate any help with our flights and accommodations this year. We will never use Sparkes of Hope donations for travel expenses but as of now, we cannot afford to go to our own summer camp this year. Please share this post. We believe that someone out there can help us help these children. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you!
