My name is Nam Nguyen and I’m a 16 year old high school student in the suburbs of Boston, MA. My parents have traveled from Vietnam to refugee camp in the Philippines to Boston, MA – all for the right to be free, the right to democracy, and the right to an education. I am so appreciative to be able to earn an education. They came from much more modest households but rose to success through education.
I believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to receive and to rise to success through an education. With the money earned from this fundraiser, I’ll buy school supplies, backpacks, and stationary items. The items will be directly hand-distributed to children in impoverished regions of rural Vietnam by my family and me during the month of July & August 2015.
I guarantee 100% of the money will go to the children. I will document the journey in my blog! Please support this campaign towards bringing Vietnamese children an education!
