Expand your horizons
Share your life with those in need!
Today when you cross paths with someone you likely experience a moment of hesitation. Could they be contagious?
What if I put them in harm’s way?
Over the past months, forced to keep our distance, we have focused on our immediate circle of relationships. Have you experienced the temptation to stay inside your bubble, safe behind the walls of your house, settled in your daily routine? What do you lose if you live this way for too long?
AVSI-USA’s Annual Campaign 2020-2021 gives you the opportunity to expand your horizons, to look out at the world and get involved in the good happening around us. This is a chance for you to share your life with others in need. A simple gesture and sacrifice can bring you to experience the joy of giving. We call this solidarity and charity.
In the 50 years of AVSI’s standing alongside the poor and vulnerable around the world, we have witnessed many terrifying and heartbreaking things, but never have we been faced with a crisis that affects us all. Yet, in the face of this challenge, we are more energized than ever.
We invite you to join us. We need you: your creativity, your energy and your desire to be fully alive. Together we can find ways to safely connect with and share with others in need.
Why is it worthwhile for you? No matter which project you choose to support, alone or with your family and friends, you will enjoy a breath of fresh air while working on something positive and life-affirming. If you take the time to get to know our friends in Kenya, Rwanda and Brazil you may just be surprised to witness that hope is alive and well in the world. And that is just the beginning!
