First Post!

Hello to all!

One week from right now, we will all be tucking in early in order to wake up at 4 in the morning and head off to the airport to go to Rwanda! This is our first of hopefully many posts that will chronicle our times in Rwanda from May 25-June 5th on the Hillel Service Trip.

We are all so excited - we have met multiple times in anticipation and preparation for our journey, and have also been individually working to raise money for the Aghozo-Shalom Youth Village that we will be staying at for ten days. So far, we have raised $2,666 through our website, and that is not even counting donations that have been mailed in! In addition, we have also been working to collect as many shoes as possible for the village. Although we really appreciate every cent that has already been donated, we have not yet reached our goal for donations. The link for the donation site is: http://tuftsraise4rwanda.causevox.com/
Every dollar does count: the website will provide you with information on how much different amounts of money will help at the village, and we would really appreciate everyone's support!

We will keep you updated as much as possible on every day in the village. Most of us have never been to Rwanda before, and even for the ones that have, it will be a completely new experience.

See you all in eight days!
