Help me in my efforts to support Room to Read! A more educated world means a better world for us all. Donate here to support children who need your help in the developing world and take the time to contribute to children in your home town!
This is my second time planning a fundraising event for Room to Read and I am so excited to do another close to where the money that is donated will go!
As an English teacher in Thailand, I have seen how big of a difference even a basic education makes to people on this side of the world. Before deciding to start this campaign, I knew I wanted to travel to Vietnam, Laos, Sri Lanka, and Nepal (Room to Read has schools in all four countries) while I'm on this side of the world. However, I prefer to travel with a purpose instead of as an average tourist. So, I am running a half marathon in Laos and asking my friends and family to support a cause I feel very passionately about.
Room to Read partners with local communities throughout the developing world to provide quality educational opportunities by establishing libraries, creating local language children's literature, constructing schools, and providing education to girls. The organization seeks to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries and future generations.
I pledge to donate at least $100 to Room to Read in addition to paying all of the costs of the race and transportation In Laos. I ask that you donate a minimum of $13 to represent the miles I will be running, but please feel free to be as generous as you like. :)
