I am doing a fundraiser for a wonderful organization that changed my life nine years ago. Back in 2006, as a rising junior in college I participated in the Into the Fields internship program with Student Action with Farmworkers (S.A.F).
I was placed in a health clinic in the rural eastern part of N.C., where I was not only translating, but also educating our farm working communities about their rights. I was shocked to learn the living conditions farmworkers in our state of NC live in. I was privileged enough to help these communities with the basic health check-ups such as blood pressure and blood sugar level. They level of gratitude showed by farmworkers proved once again they value they are to this nation.
S.A.F’s internship challenged me, educated me, and gave me an opportunity to serve my own community. This is the reason that I ask that you help me raise funds so that other students like me can have access to this great program.
Thank you for considering helping me raise funds for a great organization!
SAF's grassroots fundraising goal is to raise $20,000 through online fundraising and house parties!
SAF uses money raised from individuals to:
Thanks to those that have already donated this year through our 20-year anniversary sponsorships. We hope that you will consider giving again to help sustain our work for the next 20 years.
