Checks to PLEF, 359 Jean ST., Mill Valley, CA 94941
Working to get the AWSC Congressional Proposal introduced is not as much fun as doing the service the AWSC would dramatically expand. To add in-field experience to PLI and PLEF's efforts, I am about to do another Habitat Build in Ethiopia. You can help fund the trip with a tax deductible check donation to People's Lobby's Education Foundation (359 Jean St. Mill Valley, CA 94941). Thanks. We need financial help.
As Stephanie Banas of a Brazil Habitat Build says:
"Global Village trips are a wonderful way to experience Habitat's mission at its very center. Giving sweat and time toward the goals of the host affiliate provides a sense of "Habitatitis" surpassing anything we might catch while sitting at a desk."
Seeking time, funds, or a FrontPage web expert to help put this together.
