“Finding Presli” v.09

Filed under: Lisa´s recon mission codename ¨Finding Presli¨, PDC News — Administrator @ 1:15 pm
Dear Friends, Donors, and Volunteers.
Exciting news!  Lisa is making a last-minute trip on October 28 (in FOUR DAYS) to locate Presli in a small rural village outside Huancayo, Peru.  Lisa is going there to set up financial assistance for him and arrange for his transportation back to the USA for his surgeries.  Lisa will be in Huancayo anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks, and will be traveling by bus and taxi between Huancayo, Chupaca, and Lima as necessary to set things in motion.  She will also be visiting Merardo to evaluate his situation and possibly obtain the information needed to get him surgery as well.
 
Although we are using Sheri’s American Airlines miles to fly, the ”mission” is costing us.  The ancillary air costs are already $250.00.  Lisa will also need lodging, transportation and food while there, and she will need money to prepare documents, obtain medical records, investigate temporary custody, his passport and visa, internet access, etc. Our PeruDonations account has always been kept very small.  We currently have just over $1,000.  We are hoping this trip will not completely wipe out our treasury, since we have been saving for Presli’s trip to the US.
 
So, accordingly,we are asking each of our friends if you would be willing to make a $5.00 donation to help us out in this. To use Paypal, you can send via www.Paypal.com by simply going to their site and entering our email:  perudonations@yahoo.com, or you may click on the ”Donate” button on our website www.perudonations.org and indicate your donation amount.  We also will gladly accept donations of $10, $15, $50 - any amount!!  Besides using Paypal, if you prefer, you may write a check made out to Sherrill Sturm or Lisa Sturm and mail it to P.O. Box 94, Kaneohe, HI 96744.  In the comment area, write “Finding Presli” and we will immediately deposit it into our PeruDonations Corporation checking accout.  As always, your contribution is tax-deductable.
 
Also, we just found out that American Airlines is allowing Lisa to take two big bags for no fee!  That means for our O`ahu friends, any donations of clothes, school supplies, vitamins, medical supplies, toys, books, art supplies, (anything you think we can send along with Lisa that fits reasonably into her suitcase) will be taken directly to the recipients on your behalf.
 
Contact us by return e-mail, or call 341-4490 A.S.A.P. and we will arrange pick up between now and Tuesday evening.
 
 
Bless you all for your support in our mission. 
Sheri Sturm and Lisa Sturm
