Happy Holidays and a very big thank you for your support of Amoration's creative pursuits. 2004 has been an amazing year and the best is yet to come! Our Amoration bridgebuilding team is EXCITED and we are pouring everything we've got into our upcoming work in Bihar, India. 12 amazing volunteers have stepped forward from three continents to join us for this groundbreaking experiment in creative compassion.
Now comes the best part: bringing you along for the journey!
We depart in 9 weeks and must raise $60,000 by January 15th to make this schoolbuilding project possible. This includes all travel expenses for our volunteer team, materials to build and furnish the school, gifts to sustain the school for one year and production materials to document the entire process.
EVERY GIFT HELPS MAKE THIS PARTNERSHIP A REALITY!

Project partners will be recognized with a special presentation at the new school in Bihar and on the DVD/documentary. Copies of the DVD and special acknowledgments will also be given to those who choose
to become Partner Producers with a gift of $500 or more. The final documentary is designed for television broadcast as a model for grassroots community building -- when was the last time you saw a reality show that had this much heart?
