This year is a big one for Matt and I. We turn 35 and 30. And as
much as we love celebrating these moments with our friends and
family, we will have to humbly ask for support instead.
In lieu of gifts or dinner, we are asking for your
donation so that we can go on a trip to Cristo Rey, Nicaragua
this October and help build a home for a family in need and
provide supplies to a child development center that serves
abused, abandoned and malnourished
children. Nicaragua is the poorest country in
Central America, with almost 80% of it’s population living with
less than $2 per day.
As you all know, we embarked on a mission to build GreatPositive
a year and a half ago, and being able to use our own platform to
make a wider impact has been an amazing experience. We are so
grateful and appreciative for all the encouragement you've
provided and will always be indebted to your kindness.
Your donation will go directly to Hope Project International, a nonprofit that I've
grown to know and trust over the past year and a half. The
funds raised go directly to the nonprofit and will cover all the
travel, lodging and supply expenses for both Matt and I.
And a cute tidbit about us: Matt and I starting dating mainly
because of our shared passions for making our community and
world a better place (we even volunteered together on our third
date in hot 90-degree weather at a composting site). I am so
lucky to call him my fiance, my business partner and best
