Hi Adventure Philanthropists,
I’m super excited to announce the winner of last week’s $230 Volunteer Scholarship to help build houses for Katrina victims—Deb from the great state of Illinois!
After receiving multiple entries, I was won over by Deb’s sincerity. She wrote:
“New Orleans is a very special place for me, my passion for the people who live there and seeing their struggle to get back on their feet has made me aware of how much help people need in this world.”
“Getting this spot will enable me to go & help build a better city and help all those still struggling to just get "back home."
Congratulations Deb! I truly hope you enjoy the week-long house-building engagement with the NOLA-based nonprofit St. Bernard Project. I couldn’t have hand-picked a better person to take up the hammer in my stead.
And now for the articles this week:
