Dave Philps, a fellow DFH realtor traveled to Honduras on 30 January with the “Friends of Honduras” charity (www.friendsofhonduras.org) to spend 2 weeks providing some assistance to the children in a small village in the mountains near the capital of Tegucigalpa. Dave has paid all his own expenses.
To put a bit of perspective on how far a dollar goes in Honduras, a tax deductible donation of $20 will provide a meal for 200 children….a $400 donation will feed those 200 children a meal on each school day for a month.
Another realtor, Ally Guevin organized a fundraising bake sale to help Dave.
W my wife, Janet, helped out with the baking. Below is a photo of the baking ith my help, we she did - I actually tried to take credit at work, but it didn't fly! My wife does copious amounts of baking for the SPCA Christmas Bake Sale, so the amount of baking below is actually miniscule by comparison.
