2015 Carter Work Project

What drives a person to fly half-way round the world to build a house for a stranger?  I suppose it’s the same love and gratitude that drives me to build for the people in my own corner of the world.  We call it the theology of the hammer, putting our faith into action to provide all people a decent place to live.

Its hard to imagine that a 300-square-foot house could be the answer to a prayer, but the stories of how these families currently live in makeshift shelters made of tin, plastic and other discarded materials quickly changes one’s perspective.  

I am planning to join President and Mrs. Carter, the people of Nepal and thousands of volunteers from around the world to build homes and change lives in Pokhara, Nepal through the 2015 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Our goal is to build 100 homes in one week - November 1 - 6, 2015.

I wish the simple act of volunteering my time and effort was all that was required; however, there is also a cost involved.  My goal is to raise $4,500. 100% of these funds will go directly to helping me get to and back home from the building site in Nepal; to purchase the needed building supplies to aid in the construction of the home, and to provide basic food and shelter while I am there.  Every penny of your contribution will be accounted for.   History has proven that people of all nations who have a home to live in, have something to live for.  Their gratitude is overwhelming and  indescribable! I have seen it so many times in North Texas. This is the main reason I have donated almost every Saturday, for many years to helping Habitat for Humanity.

I am grateful for whatever you can donate to help me to help all of us in this wonderful land of opportunity and abundance to spread our love.
