My name is Christian Phillips and I am partnering with the James Arthur Albert Foundation to raise money for underprivileged children in Belize. The foundation aids students by providing scholarships to those who cannot afford the $200 it costs to buy their school supplies for the year. These scholarships change lives! It’s difficult for families to send their kids to school when they can barely afford clothes for the year or even food for the week. Students who receive scholarships are given a chance to change the lives of people around them for the better. Many of them selflessly dream of using their education to help the needy, cure the sick, and aid the impoverished.
The James Arthur Albert Foundation has provided over 1,700 scholarships in the last 11 years. They have also built a cafeteria so students no longer have to eat their lunch under the mango trees of Belize when it rained down on them. 100% of all donations are used to directly benefit the underprivileged children who dream of changing their country for the better. Not a single cent was ever—or will ever—be spent on marketing, overhead, travel expenses, or anything of this nature.
This is a cause I care deeply about. To support the foundation, I will be fundraising $3,000 so that 15 students may pursue their education for another year. To do this, I will be performing a 4321 lift to show the strength that one person can have to champion others. The event will take place on November 14th at 8:00 PM in the Knapp Center at Drake University and will consist of the following back-to-back:
- Deadlift - 4 plates at 405 pounds
- Squat - 3 plates at 315 pounds
- Bench press - 2 plates at 225 pounds
- Overhead press - 1 plate at 135 pounds
In total, I will be lifting 1,080 pounds in the span of a few short minutes. I am asking you to help me in my pursuit to send these 15 children to school by contributing to my campaign. Any donation amount will be humbly and graciously accepted!
