Alex joined us on the ground in the Dominican Republic for a World Vision Leadership Build in 2013 and became a big believer in the work that was being done. For her, it was was a life-changing experience and after returning home, she vowed that she would return. Unfortunately, due to a tragic accident that cut her life short, she never had the opportunity to revisit the community and continue making a difference in the lives of families that were needing safe housing. In honour of her life, Alex's mother Pat along with her good friend Tina began to organize a special trip that would help further Alex's dream of families receiving places to call home.
In January, you're invited to come Live Like Alex with us in the Dominican Republic!
When you partner with us, you'll work alongside a family and celebrate as they enter their home for the first time! It's an experience that changes the lives of the families we work with but also will have a lasting impact on you personally.
In the Dominican Republic, you'll have the opportunity to visit local communities, meet new friends, work hard to help provide a brighter future for a family in need, and make life-long memories in the process. While buffet-style meals and views the ocean each day are enjoyable, we'll take you to our favourite spot out in the community called Mama Maria's, where you'll taste some of the best, authentic Caribbean cuisine on the island—prepared by the amazing Maria.
Over the years, thousands of volunteers just like yourself have fundraised and joined us on these life-changing trips, helping build homes, schools, community centres and other projects for communities along the north coast of the country. Come join us in the Dominican Republic this January and start your year off by experience the power of making a difference for someone else, while having your life changed in the process!
"Alex was a beautiful, compassionate, devoted advocate, dear friend, creative leader, encourager, beloved daughter and champion of the poor. All who knew Alex, knew that she was a world changer, in reality, now we see that she was one who was placed on this planet to change multiple worlds” ~ Alex, as described by World Vision Canada
