Shamelessly Begging for Money

I swore I wouldn't do this, but I am really desperate. I found myself sending out a mass email this morning thinking the same thing. However, here I am, doing it again. I am working for Habitat for Humanity at the American Church here in Paris and we have a "build" planned in Romania for July 2007. Unfortunately, we still need 20,000 Euros which is a little more than 26,000 dollars for the trip.

If you donate to charity, and would like to donate to someplace different this year, would you consider donating to our Habitat for Humanity fund. If you feel so inclined to donate money, you can go to this website After filling in all your information, fill this part in with our information:
Name ( American Church Paris )
ID number (6237-6872)
GV Event Code (GV8962)

Or just go to this website:

If you choose to donate money this way, please either email this address and let them know you have made a donation to the American Church or let me know. If you want to donate money but don't feel comfortable donating this way, email me and I will give you other options.

If you do not want to donate money but would still like to help us raise the money, you could always mail me cool American things from home (such as peanut butter, bisquick, microwave popcorn, gum, beef jerky, etc) we could auction at our dinner fund raiser in April. I promise I will not keep any of the items that you donate!

Thanks in advance to any help and thanks to those who have already helped!
