Hello and welcome to my fundraising page! The purpose of this page is to aid in fundraising $435 to go on a mission trip to Kentucky this spring to participate in the Christian Appalachian Project. Essentially, I will have the opportunity to work on fixing homes for the impoverished families residing in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. Additionally, I will be working alongside skilled construction volunteers and the families themselves as we work together to better this suffering community. But first, a brief introduction of who I am. My name is Dane Hamilton and I am a senior at the University of Florida studying Civil Engineering with a minor in Business Administration. For the vast majority of my life, I have found great joy in building things and helping others. My hope is that eventually, with a degree in Civil Engineering, combined with a passion to serve others, I will be able to turn the gifts I have been given into a way that I can genuinely help those in need. With the technical expertise I have gained thus far in my various classes and internship experiences in the fields of construction management and engineering applications, I believe that this trip to Kentucky will help me to develop these skills even further while also allowing me to evangelize in the name of Christ by my way of life.
I thank you for all the support that you give me. Every little bit helps! No matter what you give, what I need is your prayers most of all. Please pray for all the students who will be attending various mission trips this spring, for all impoverished families on U.S. soil, and for me that I may grow in my skills and faith so I can further advance the force for good on this earth. In turn, I will be praying for all of you. Thank you again, and God bless.
