MEDLIFE – Medicine, Education, and Development for Low-Income Families Everywhere
This summer, I will be traveling to Tanzania, Africa to help deliver medical services to families in need on a MEDLIFE Mobile Clinic. As a volunteer, I will work closely with medical professionals on the Clinic, work on a community development project, and generally help out however I can!
Please help me realize this goal by supporting my participation! 50% of your donation will go directly towards reducing the cost of my participation on the trip, helping me take part in this valuable hands-on experience. The other 50% will go towards supporting MEDLIFE’s operational budget, which covers costs involved with planning for the Mobile Clinics, delivering patient follow-up care after I leave, and much more. Thank you for your support!!
To just sleep in a car like this, with your best friend or boyfriend and not worry because its just you two and tomorrow you’re just going to climb out of bed and into the front of the car where you’ll drive off. Another day on your road trip together, living, laughing, loving.
Hip-Hop Dance Association (HHDA), in partnership with dance directors and studios across the nation, present “Compassion Philippines,” a nationwide dance workshop raising money to benefit the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, the largest typhoon ever measured.
This dance workshop occurred on the weekend of December 20th, 2013, spanning from coast to coast. From San Diego all the way to Boston, this workshop gathered some of the community’s best choreographers to make an online “flashmob” to one song. Upon completion of teaching their choreography, the choreographers blocked each piece and filmed it. These clips have all been compiled into one video with hopes to raise awareness and encourage those who see it to donate to the typhoon victims in whatever way possible.
"Sumasayaw para sa Pilipinas." We dance for the Philippines.
ALL proceeds from the workshop have been donated to the nonprofit organization, CARE.org. As of January 21, 2014, Compassion Philippines has raised $7,763.
coming to terms with how connected everyone is. The constant glow on their faces emitted by cell phones.. Yeah, I’m guilty too. It’s definitely changed certain close interactions that I have but what can I do about it. It is what it is. Let’s go back to what it was like 5 years ago, where hanging out was about enjoying each others company and not about watching each other scrolling through feeds. Take pictures, yes. Take photos, yes. But checking & scrolling through feeds when someone is in conversation-proximity to you, no.
I’m guilty too, don’t get me wrong. But I hope some people realize what’s going on.
