Habitat for Humanity

While we were in China we met a couple from Colorado who were using the same agency as us. I have kept in touch with them through emails and facebook. They have just been picked by Habitat to go to China to help rebuild homes and towns that were effected by the earthquake last year. They are counting on donations to go. According to Barry this is what they need.....(quote)

"Although we have many things in the works to help us get there, we are under a bit of a time crunch to get our initial goals of $1,000 by June 10th and an additional $2,600 by July 12th. The total $3,600 covers our food and ground transportation along with building supply fees to Habitat for Humanity while we are in China. After this portion is paid, we will need another (anticipated/estimated) $4000 for air travel. We are also working on some matching funds for a few things, so that donations will go even farther."
