PWID Volunteers Needed

Brother Knights, 
 
Look at this happy guy and come join the fun!   
 
 
We are needing volunteers for the PWID "Tootsie Roll Drive" Friday and Saturday, September 23th and 24th.   Proceeds support Special Olympics and Down Syndrome Network.  
 
Thirteen years ago, we received the news upon birth that our son Casey (pictured above) was born with Down Syndrome.  It was an incredibly frightening experience as we had no idea what the future would hold or even how to properly care for him.  At the hospital we got connected with DS Network, and our fears were quickly alleviated.  From helping to navigate the health resources provided by the state to binding with the DS community to see how such children can thrive, DS Network helped our family immensely, and we are forever grateful.  Special Olympics needs no introduction.  
 
We are seeking volunteers to man 2 hour shifts at one of three locations (JC Penney, Frys – Chandler/40th, Frys – Ranch Circle).   Volunteers need merely to stand outside the stores wearing bibs that promote the Knights Drive for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities, collect money and give away Tootsie Rolls.  It couldn't be easier, but specific instructions will be provided upon signup.  If you can, please bring a child with you to help (mine love it!) - you will easily double the contributions and it's a great teaching opportunity on the importance of serving others.  This is an easy opportunity for teenagers to get involved for service hours, and volunteers need not be Knights.  
 
Open slots are listed below – Please reply to steve.rivers@riversmoorehead.com to sign up and please indicate which slot you are requesting
 
Thank you in advance for your assistance, 
 
Steve

Kayla Casey's volunteer trip

Sent: Monday, September 12, 2016 9:52 AM


Subject: [Corpus Christi 10062 Mail] Kayla Casey's volunteer trip

To the Knights of Columbus: 


Ever since reading Left to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza, and seeing how much she valued her education, my dream has been to teach English in Africa. This past summer, I got to live out that dream in Tanzania, thanks to an organization called GIVE Volunteers (Growth International Volunteer Excursions). While the program was only for two weeks, it clarified for me that I one day hope to be able to live in a country like Tanzania and teach. I left Phoenix on July 19th, 2015, not knowing exactly what to expect, and I returned on August 5th a changed person, with new friends from around the United States and Tanzania and a completely new perspective on life. 
For about a week and a half, I, along with 12 other college students from around the United States, lived in a small village called Kairo on the eastern tip of the island of Zanzibar. We worked together with the villagers to construct a school, and we tutored some of the local teenage boys and young men in English. In our free time, we got to explore the village, support the locals by buying souvenirs at their shops, hang out on the beach, spend time with the children, and get to know the boys and they way they live. On our days off, we got to go swimming with wild dolphins in the Indian Ocean, we walked through a forest that was home to wild red colobus monkeys, we went sailing from the northern tip of the island, and when we returned to the mainland Tanzania, we traveled to Arusha and got to go on a two-day safari, where we saw many elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, birds of all kinds, a rhino, a cheetah, and even a lioness! 
During my time on the island, I got to experience what life in a small village in Africa is like-from eating on the floor with my right hand, to drinking water fresh out of a coconut, and walking around barefoot and showering in salt water, to buying a goat (which we watched get killed and then ate for dinner). When the time came to leave the wonderful village of Kairo that I know I can now call a home, I didn't want to say goodbye to the village, the island, or the wonderful people that were so welcoming to our group. 

My two weeks in Africa, but especially my week and a half on Zanzibar, was the greatest, most incredible experience of my life; it was amazing, and eye-opening, and life-changing. The people of the village have NOTHING, but they are the happiest and most grateful people I have ever met. My time in Kairo inspired me to change the way I live, to stop taking things for granted, to live my life more simply, and to be grateful for the things I do have. I know that the village and the people of Kairo will always be in my heart and mind, and I will always be able to call Kairo my home. I can even picture myself eventually moving to Zanzibar, building a house, and becoming a teacher in the school that I helped build with GIVE. But until then, I will continue to keep in touch with the boys that I got to know (via Facebook), continue working on their English with them, and continue to practice the basic Swahili that I learned in my time in Tanzania. I know that it's not goodbye, it's "badae" (which means "see you later" in Swahili. Hakuna Matata! (which actually means "no worries") 


Now it's been a little over a year since I left the village of Kairo, and when I left there in August of 2015, I said "badae" (see you later), rather than "goodbye." I knew I would be returning to Zanzibar. And here I am, a year later, and I've paid my deposit to return to Tanzania for four weeks with GIVE in the summer of 2017 (I will be in Zanzibar from June 5-29, 2017). 
However, a year ago, I didn't know how much the term "wanderlust" would describe me. I have recently consulted with people close to me, and with help from my weekly income from Red Lobster, I decided to also GO TO THAILAND! My plan is to take part in the 2 1/2 week GIVE program in Thailand before heading to Tanzania (Zanzibar) for a month (and another week to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro!!!) 
I came to the realization that I no longer want to travel the world just to travel. That seems pointless to me, when there's people that need help. Besides, when will I be at a better time in my life to travel to underdeveloped nations? 


Please consider visiting my gofundme account and leaving a donation: gofundme.com/helpKaylahelpCairo. Other forms of donations can be given to my parents and/or my grandparents! 
ANY and all support is GREATLY appreciated. I cannot wait to share my adventures with all of you. I am extremely thankful to those of you that have helped in the past, and I thank you in advance for the support, both financial and otherwise, and the prayers. 


Thank you and God Bless, 
Kayla Casey

Membership drive AND Donuts this weekend

Subject: [Corpus Christi 10062 Mail] Membership drive AND Donuts this weekend

Brothers,
 
This weekend Saturday 4PM Mass and at all Sunday Masses we will be holding a Membership Drive in the Courtyard/Parish Center. Please assist with the drive by handing out brochures and informing perspective Knights of the type of activities we do and the charities we support. I would like to have 6-8 Knights at each mass.
 
We also have donuts after the Sunday morning masses which will tie in nicely with the Membership drive. The last several times we handed out donuts having 4-5 Knights supporting this effort worked very nice.
 
Anytime amount of your time you can give to the activities this weekend is appreciated.     
 
Vivat Jesus!!
