I Need Your Help To Make This A Reality!

Sat Dec 21, 2002 12:16 pm

Dear Members:

My name is Carlos A. Espinoza, I'm LanPeru here on the site. Over the past two years I have been working on a non-profit organization to promote literacy in Peru. Here is the thing, for all of you out there that feel charitable, I am trying to raise $150.00USD for all the fees that I have to pay to the IRS to get exemption from taxes. I have posted (below) a little about the organization. If you are intersted in donating, please post on here and I will e-mail you!

Adolescents Against Illiteracy
Since we are a new organization, there are probably a few questions that you may have about us, below are some questions and answers that may make everything more clear.

Who Are We?
Adolescents Against Illiteracy is a new non-profit organization which hopes to help disadvantaged schools in Peru and Chile by providing textbooks, and supplies which will promote literacy at an early age. Adolescents Against Illiteracy was founded and is run by students attending Grant High School in Van Nuys, California, ranging from grades 11 to 12. Adolescents Against Illiteracy hopes to target schools, in the poorest areas of Metropolitan Lima and Santiago.

What Do We Do?
Adolescents Against Illiteracy believes that the foundation for success in life is built in the early years of childhood, mainly by way of education. In countries like Peru and Chile, many young students do not have the materials or opportunities in education that we have here in the United States. Adolescents Against Illiteracy hopes to help the most disadvantaged schools with supplies such as books, pencils, teaching equipment, nutrition, and many other education-related items. Contributions will be collected in order to purchase the items mentioned above, due to the dollar’s (USD) power over the Peruvian Sol and the Chilean Peso amounts such as ten or twenty dollars can benefit an entire classroom! Think of the possibilities!
Adolescents Against Illiteracy hopes to support more than just the classrooms but even the cafeterias or soup kitchens that may be in the vicinity in the school, because after all, nutrition is also an important part of a child’s development. We realize that there are many poor schools in all of Latin America, let alone in Peru and Chile, but even if we help just one school, we know that our efforts will not be in vain. Starting small is the foundation for the success of any organization, and in this case, a group of future doctors, teachers, and even presidents.

What Can You Do to Help?
By now, you are hopefully interested in helping our cause, only you may not know how. There are many ways that you can help us even if it seems like very little, for example calling us and giving us ideas about fundraisers, or giving us information about festivals where we may be able to reach more people. Here is what you can do!

Volunteer: If you are looking to help our cause, you can help us distribute flyers, or even collect donations for us at various locations.

Donate: Don’t have the time to volunteer? Donations are our main source of funds to further our cause, even a dollar can help, there is never “too small” of a donation.

Sponsor Us: Looking for a way to advertise for free? Word-of-Mouth is probably the best advertisement you can ask for. We will include you in our monthly periodical; we are always looking for supplies or services that may help us.
