A Message From Carla Markizon

(9/24) ***UPDATE*** WOW!!! WOW. I am blessed and blown away by the support I have gotten in such a short period of time this week from Family members & Friends for my upcoming trip to bring clean water to the families of the Dominican Republic. I am just shocked and astonished by the love and generosity from you to support me. Those who gave, went above and beyond! I have reached my goal and skyrocketed over it! THANK YOU! PLEASE give your blessings, wishes and thoughts for now on, and save any other monetary donations for the next clean water trip I go on in the future. I can't wait to share the experience with you all. Thank You! I love you! Carla

(9/21) Hey Facebook Peeps, Friends & Family - I'm going on my first mission trip next Month (October 10th) for a week to the Dominican Republic to meet families that are in need of clean water. While I'm there I'll be interacting with locals, learning how to create ceramic water filtration systems, implementing them in their homes, and making memories with families and children. I'm excited to be involved in something totally new for me that will help others, educate myself, and no doubt will impact my life, as much as clean water will theirs. If you feel moved to assist by giving monetarily, even the smallest donation will be appreciated by me, my travel group, the wine to water organization, and the families of the Dominican Republic. Thank you. Carla

About This Campaign

When you sign up as a volunteer in the Dominican Republic, you will get to make ceramic filters first-hand in the filter factory. We will teach you what materials go into the filter, show you how to mold them, fire them in the kiln, and then test them for purification. In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to get to know families that do not have access to clean water and personally distribute filters to their home. We also follow-up with past filter beneficiaries to hear how these filters have changed their lives. When giving the gift of clean water, life is instantly simplified and prioritized. It's an incredible experience.
