This summer I have the opportunity to travel to Malawi, Africa with the non-profit World Of Difference. I will be volunteering to help build a girls' hostel and school. Below is a letter I have created as part of my fundraising efforts.

I am racing the deadline - which is this Friday, July 14th. If you are interested in contributing to my goal - let me know and I will talk more with you about the trip. Any amount helps! Please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested as well.

Checks can be made payable to WORLD OF DIFFERENCE. Please include my name (Maddy Barreto) on the memo line of the check. I will be picking up checks this week and mailing them to the organization.

If you want to mail your check directly to the organization you are welcome to do so. Please send me an email ( if you do so I can ask them to be on the lookout for it. The address is as follows:

Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions

Attn: Betsy maxwell

122 E 1700 S



You can visit the World of Difference website at to find out more about the organization and see pictures from past exhibitions.

We will also be taking donated items as our checked luggage to give to the school.  We're looking for books, sports uniforms/equipment, art supplies, etc. Contact me if you have anything on the list below that you might want to send along.

Thanks for reading!
