Please Help Sponsor My Bones for Haiti!
Dear Family and Friends,
I'm writing to you on behalf of Team Broken Earth, a non-profit group of volunteer Canadian healthcare professionals that provides medical assistance to Haiti and other underdeveloped countries, where some people wait for months with broken bones and other life-changing injuries. There are several Broken Earth Teams across Canada, including here in Ottawa.
I would like to ask for your support as I help to raise money for Team Broken Earth’s next trip to Haiti in November, my first experience of humanitarian work. I ran in the Feel it in Your Bones 5K Run in June, raising $2,840 thanks to many generous donations! It is not too late to help: if you want to contribute to our fundraising efforts, please do so right here!
All the funds raised will go towards Team Ottawa's next missions to Haiti in November and January. I am excited to be participating in this mission with 40+ other physicians, nurses and physiotherapists from across the Ottawa-area hospitals. We will be conducting clinics, surgeries and hands-on training to help improve the local medical expertise in Haiti.
We all feel the pain of injuries sometimes, but are lucky to have access to some of the best healthcare in the world.
Please help me to share this with those less fortunate.
Philip and Team
