Students Helping Honduras is busy this Spring holding fundraising events across the country. I was able to attend one of the events this past weekend at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
The fundraising event was a volleyball tournament. The funds raised through the event are going to be used to build a library at the village of Villa Soleada in El Progreso, Honduras. The facility, designed by engineers and architects from the Building Goodness Foundation, will give more than 2,000 people in the region a safe place to study and access books for the first time.
The event had all of the elements to be successful. The elements included entertainment, food, team competition, great volunteers and fun. They also met their goal by raising more than $25,000.
These students are making a difference in the lives of other people and in the life of a community. How are you making a difference?
