WithOut Excuse Endeavor aims to help the plight of at-risk youth around the world.
We are raising money for our Ukraine ministry called Freeway. Their team works with at risk youth during the week in their after-school program. They offer sports, English classes and work hard to connect with the kids. The team also visits multiple state run orphanages. They bring food, clothes and most importantly they bring themselves! They show these kids they are loved and they offer them hope for their futures.
***Monthly Goal of $5,000 by September 9th***
We finished August strong! Thank you so much to all who donated we reached our first goal! Thank you! We are hoping to complete our Dossier, as well as have it translated and submitted by the end of September. Please help us by sharing with your friends and family.
This is Lisa. She is 9. Lisa's mom died last year after a very long and painful struggle with disease. A month and a half ago, Lisa's wheelchair ridden grandma died, too. Father? Lisa never had one. Her whole entire life this little girl lived in conditions that very few of you can imagine. Really. Unless you have traveled to an overseas village and saw what real hunger and poverty look like. She was loved well, but never had a fraction of what any child from even the poorest American family has. Now the only riches that were truly hers, her mom's hugs, are gone. Forever. How much can a child take? Lisa is now in an orphanage in Ukraine, and the trauma she experienced from her previous circumstances, magnified by events of the last two years, lead to the fact that she does not speak much. Some, but not much. Her world has collapsed.
Now, I have these friends, Katie and Daniel Schmeirer, some of you know them, some don't. These two have enough love to embrace the world. When they heard about Lisa, they stepped up and decided to do everything possible and impossible to help her. Lisa needs to be out of the orphanage and undergo treatment. Every day in an institution leaves a mark. Not the kind you want to carry. The kind you want to shield a little girl from.
Friends, we need some of your money so we can bring her here. Katie and Daniel were in a process of buying a house when they found out about Lisa, and while they are ready for her logistically, they are at $0 count for other financial costs involved because everything happened at the same time. They need some of your money: your coffee money, your gaming money, your new shoes money, your lunch money, your movie money, your any money. We need the money that comes from your heart, your pride, your compassion or your ambition. Whatever reason you may find within yourself to give, I need you to give.
One of our easily recognized expressions is " it takes a village to raise a child." I suppose sometimes it does. We need you to show Lisa our village. Please.
All your gifts are tax-deductible and will go directly to cover expenses involved in facilitating everything necessary to assure the well-being and health of this little girl.
Sasha is a 4 year old boy in the village of Mokrets in Ukraine who desperately needs a hearing aid. Due to a traumatic birth, he has several serious health problems and poor vision and almost zero ability to hear are two conditions. All money donated except the approximate 5% retained from credit card and Grassroot hosting fees will be sent to Ukraine by Without Excuse Endeavor to Andriy to give to the family to purchase a hearing aid for Sasha. Sasha needs this hearing aid to be able to learn to speak or he may never talk his entire life. Thank you for caring and donating!
From Andriy of the Freeway team's Facebook page, "The colder it is on the street, the more we look forward to Winter, snow, Christmas, and gifts. Once again we want to believe in a miracles. Someone wants a new gadget, someone a bike, someone wishes for headphones, someone is waiting for a trip to the snowy mountains. Someone wants it all. But not him.
His name is Sasha. He is 4. He lives among us, in our village Mokrets. Sasha does not speak because he does not hear. He hears almost nothing. The world did not meet him on friendly terms when the boy was born. Due to childbirth traumas, Sasha was injured, and now he can not walk, he sees poorly and does not hear. A four-year-old sweet boy has never heard the voice of his mother. Sasha lives with his brother and sister, but he can’t hear them either. Sasha's dad is now serving in the army. The most cherished wish of Sasha's mother is that her little four-year-old son would hear her words "Hey, my little one, hello!" and smile in response.
For this family the price of the issue is unbearably heavy - 30 000 UAH (approz $1000US) This is exactly how much a hearing aid costs, which Sasha can use with all his terrible diagnoses. Speech apparatus is formed by the age of four, so there is not a second to lose.
Sasha is a child who needs our help a little more than other children do, but unfortunately, he cannot even ask for it. Therefore, I do it for him. This child is sent on our way so that our hearts become kinder.
