Peace Corps Fund (forwarded from John Coyne)
- The PeaceCorpsFund is moving fast towards our September special
event to raise funds to support RPCV projects within the U.S.
The PeaceCorpsFund is not a membership organization. It has been
established to help RPCVs to fund local projects to educate
Americans about the world we knew as Volunteers. There is no paid
staff, no full time office space, and all the work done for the
PeaceCorpsFund is done by RPCVs volunteering their time as a Third
Now you can help. I need you to do two things.
1) Donate an item for our auction.
2) Send this email onto your RPCV friends and others who support
the work of the Peace Corps.
It is a wide range of items that you can donate. For example, a
number of famous RPCV writers have sent me signed, first editions of
their books. A Paris apartment has been donated so a couple or
family can spend a week in Paris. We have a beautiful chess board
sent by a RPCV from Krgyzstan, a rug from Romania, wines from NYC
merchants. The list goes on and on.
The event on September 29th is in NYC and tickets will be for sale
next week. Go to our website: www.peacecorpsfund.org for more
information. We will have food prepared by famous NY chefs that
represent the countries where we served. We will have international
music. We will honor and present grants to five New York City RPCVs
who have spent their careers teaching in the city, celebrating a
lifetime of service to others.
