I've made 53 scarves, which equals over $350 towards my trip to Haiti. Which equals 27% towards my total goal. Over 1/4 of the way there!!

And I have to say, I never imagined that I would have to figure out PayPal and shipping to finish scarf orders. I've shipped as far as West Coast CANADA!!

There is still time to order a scarf, but it won't be ready until after Christmas.

If you'd like to contribute to my trip without purchasing a scarf, you can do so by sending a check to either me or Church of the Cross with my name in the memo and a hand written note that also denotes it for my Haiti trip fund. For Church of the Cross's address, you can refer to one previous post.

Thank you all for your generosity and your decision to help me in my second (annual?) trip to Haiti! I am so thrilled to see what God has in store for me to learn as I travel outside of Port au Prince.

I hate talking about money.

But this is what I have to do.

For this trip to Haiti, it will cost me about $1,400. Unlike most college students, I do not have that much money laying around to freely spend. So for this trip, I am asking for sponsorship. If you feel led to contribute to my trip, you can do that in two ways, sending a check to me, or by sending a check to

Church of the Cross
5901 Millfair Road
Fairview, PA  16415

If you choose to send a check to Church of the Cross, please write in the memo my name (Katie Jobczynski) and send a note along with the check that it is for my account. 

On this trip I will be doing manual labor.. me right, crazy!? We will be painting the school, and possibly going up to a mountain church to help with construction. And getting to talk to the children!

So I'm brushing up on my Creole and searching for new skirts.

So there I did it. I talked about money. Now it's up to God.

"God's will, God's bill."
