Help disadvantaged families in Ecuador!

Hi, my name is Whitney Fletcher. I am a junior at Middlebury and am currently studying abroad in Ferrara, Italy. As part of my abroad experience, I am doing an internship at IBO Italia, a nonprofit organization that volunteers in different countries to help people in need. I am currently helping IBO fundraise a new project that aims to help disadvantaged families in Ecuador. Diseases and illnesses plague that area and cause deaths that can easily be avoided. The solution is simple: bigger, cleaner, and sturdier homes. IBO’s project will build a house large enough to fit 20 Andean families, which will provide them with the necessary shelter to lead a healthier lifestyle.
This project is also part of a larger goal, the Global Giving Challenge; if IBO raises enough money during the month of April, they will have the opportunity to become partners with Global Giving, a company aimed at helping nonprofits fundraise, and be able to utilize their resources in the future.
I am really excited about this project and want to help them raise as much money as they can to help both the families in Ecuador and IBO. I am posting here to ask for your contribution and help spreading the word. Any donation, large or small, will make a difference. It is really easy to donate – all you have to do is go to the website below and click on the amount you wish to give.
For more information on the project and challenge, I have posted the link for the Facebook page below:
With your help, we can give 20 Andean families homes that they deserve and help IBO reach out to more people in need in the future. 
Thank you!

If circumstances compel you to delay a purchase or rental further, please let the Book Store staff know so we can attempt to accommodate your needs.
