Thank you all for your tremendous contribution. You have done so much. We hope you will continue to help the lives of others by becoming ongoing volunteers and supporters for Ascend--including planning toward future humanitarian expeditions as your time and circumstances permit. Please know that wherever you live, we have many ways for you to help! Each of you has skills and connections that would help us move forward in this important work. We’d love to hear from you and discuss your interests so that we can benefit from your continued involvement! One of the ways you can help us right away is to take a moment to write a brief note—signed by you—on your personal letterhead or note paper, sharing a paragraph or two about a specific project or program that you thought was really successful or life changing. For example, you may share your observations on how hard the community worked to construct the clinic and what it meant to them; or the new adobe stove, which went from a curiosity to the “hottest” item in town, which everyone now hopes to build, etc. And if possible, please enclose a photo related to your note. Such success stories and photos can be used in a variety of wonderful ways, including giving a copy to a donor who wants to know the impact of his/her contribution, posting it on our website, or as part of our electronic newsletter. We are also attaching a short expedition survey, which we encourage you to complete and send back to headquarters. We really appreciate and learn from participant insights and recommendations. So thanks in advance for taking time to write the personal note and complete the survey. We send our heartfelt thanks to you for reaching out to help some of the world’s poorest citizens and for taking your time to go off the beaten track, leaving behind the comforts of home to live and work with the villagers of Amaru, our home away from home. Con mucho cariňo,
