Dear Rob,

I'm not sure if this is a functional e-mail account, but I'll have a go. I currently live and work in New York, yet my fiancee and I are moving to Chile in January to live for six to seven months and are looking at various volunteer organizations to work for/with. Right now we are deciding between working at a Nursery school in Vina del Mar and The Chol-Chol Foundation in Temuco, yet I was wondering if you had any recommendations for us. I am 24, I graduated from Vassar College in 2000 and am a writer and artist. If you'd like to know more about me, let me know and I'd be happy to send you a resume or anything else.

Thanks for your help and I hope this works.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Rob:

I will graduate from Lehigh University with a degree in Biology and English and would like to take a year abroad and volunteer in Brazil through the Peace Corps. My mom is Brazilian and so I have visited Brazil many times and am familiar with the language and culture. I would like some more information too about the opportunities there. I would especially enjoy working in the north of Brazil if possible. Your thoughts are appreciated. Regards, Ian McManus
