If you have a moment, please check out this worthwile online project.
I recently launched http://www.aurashouse.com. It's a fundraising website that aims to raise $4500 to build a safe, sturdy home for 11-year old Aura Hernandez and her family who currently live in one of the poorest slums in Guatemala City, Guatemala. So far over $2000 has been raised.There are photos and details at the site.
I have been working on the site with the top-rated US charity Children International as well as with students from William Paterson University of New Jersey (where I teach).
A brick is added to Aura's virtual house on the site with every $50 raised.
Would you be interested in possibly making a small contribution? Even a $1 donation would be a help. You can donate securely online or use the offline address at the site. It's for a great cause, would be a huge surprise to Aura's family, and would qualify as a certified good deed for the day. :-)
Or, you can also volunteer to help work on the site. Check out our October Newsletter (link is on the main page) for more details.
Thanks in advance and best wishes,
