And without further ado, you can find Vik's personal thoughts on his cause below...
Hello there -
As I reflect on the past several years, I am most proud of the progress FIMRC has made in the communities we serve. The foundation's growth has weathered the difficult economy and other challenges - this is a testament to the efforts of our field staff, the chapters, our extensive network of volunteers and the leadership of our management team.
FIMRC has proven time and again that once funds are raised to build a clinic, we can make the project self-sustainable within 12 to 18 months. For my birthday this year, I ask for your support in helping to build our next clinic. While we are still exploring project sites, there has been progress made in identifying opportunities in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, India, Kenya and Panama. Stay tuned for which site will be chosen later this summer!
Whether you are able to make a small donation of $32 or a more sizable one of $100 or more, please support FIMRC's next effort to adopt another community and change for the better the access to healthcare in underserved areas. I will be matching every dollar donated, so please be generous. All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a letter for your records.
Thanks in advance for supporting a cause that is near and dear to my daily life. While my birthday is technically June 2nd, I will be continuing the fundraising effort beyond this date - so please considering donating today!
Kids totally rock, Vik
Hope the summer is off to a wonderful beginning, and thanks for your support!
