Dream Big…Fear Small!

“An act of goodness is of itself an act of happiness. No reward coming after the event can compare with the sweet reward that went with it.”   by  Maurice Maeterlinck

Over the years of my involvement with “Friends of Copey”, I have noticed that just when I start thinking things could not get better…it somehow does! This is one reason I really love this work. You can dream as big as you like…and fear little!

I had the pleasure of reading some of the early impressions Kara Stewart has shared on her website. Kara and Matthew (pictured on far right below) aKara Matthews student photore the two newest E&H College students volunteering time at the Copey Learning Center as part of their course work under the “Pathway Project”. As expected, Kara is enjoying the entire experience including the young kids, adults, host family, food and the work. Ana Yancy reported earlier today that both students are doing very well and the community has already opened their arms to them.

“Pathway Project for 2018”

The Goal  $6,500.00         Actual Income=$2,850.00        Deadline:  May 25th, 2018

The other side of the Pathway Project” is also in full speed. The fundraising campaign is plugging along and we continue to have funds come in. We are still trailing a little on our

Tracking 8

tracking schedule but several donors have sent notes saying the check is in the mail. Our current progress is shown on the chart indicating we are almost 44% of our goal…lower than expected.

I certainly urge “Friends” with intentions of financially supporting the “Pathway Project for 2018” to do so quickly. The official end date for the campaign is this Friday, May 25th but will be extended a couple more weeks. Some of the planned expenses will happen later. Most of the costs for the trip happen early such as purchasing plane tickets. This provides some flexibility for managing later plans based on funds available. “Friends” want to provide a high quality travel experience with hopes the travelers will return to Copey as strong and inspirational ambassadors for learning.

Please send your 501c3 donation to:

guidelines for Pathway

And, please do not make the check to “Friends of Copey” or to me personally. All funds will go into the TCI Kiwanis Foundation account to pay the expenses. The account will be managed by the Foundation’s Treasurer, Ms. Julie Meek, CPA. The Foundation has 501c3 status. Thanks in Advance

Remember….our goal is to provide the highest quality experience possible within budget. Prayers, great positive thoughts, and money are all welcomed for this project.  Thank You!
