Abbi Buck raises $4,832 to build home for needy family

Abbi Buck raises $4,832 to build home for needy familySubmitted
Abbi Buck just completed a one month mission fund for her 16th birthday.
After hearing of a worthwhile cause while at a Christian youth camp, Abbi decided that instead of presents and money for her birthday this year she would instead turn those gifts into a home for a needy Central American family.
1Mission.org is a 5013C charitable organization, much like Habitat for Humanity in the United States.
In total, in one month, and with the help of several volunteers Abbi raised $4832.00 which will more than build an entire home for a needy family.
We are very proud of her and the blessing of God's work through her.
