    Good afternoon Scuba/Snorkel Community,

    I work for the Adelante Foundation, a non-profit that provides small loans to Honduran women in extreme poverty. Our organization is putting on a raffle to win an all expense paid trip to a Private Key in the Bay Islands for two people.

    The Private Key is surrounded by coral reef, and lots of it! The Bay Islands have always been a hotspot for marine life including whale sharks, sea turtles, and bioluminescent fish. Included in the trip is the opportunity to scuba dive, snorkel at a marine reserve, deep sea fish, sea kayak, go horseback riding, and relax on a private beach. A limited amount of tickets will be sold, so your chances of winning are higher than usual. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Tickets start at only $25.

    Every dollar raised will go directly to Honduran women and their families living in extreme poverty.

    1 raffle ticket will help fund our credit officer to give an education lesson to poor communities.
    3 raffle tickets will go to a woman in need to receive her first business loan.
    5 raffle tickets will send a child to school for a year.
    10 raffle tickets will purchase seeds and compost for a farm to support a family for an entire year.

    Thanks!

    After having been there myself, I can say that it's pretty cool! Plus, the time of year for the trip is high season for whale sharks. Aboututila.com says its not uncommon to see 5 or more in a day.

    How can I see the books of your foundation? It's not apparent on the web site.

    Thanks, evad. The link on the original post is to the raffle landing page which doesn't have our financials. Here is a link to our audited financial statements, annual reports, and 990s: Adelante Foundation

    If you do not find something on the site that you are looking for, let me know and I can send it your way.
