Tucker Family Charity Trip to Calcutta!

Hi Everyone! My family and I are headed to Calcutta, India (where my wife and I met in 2002!) for a six month stay (all that visas will allow at present!) to volunteer with Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity in orphanages and The Home for the Dying. We also plan to use our nursing degrees to help in a few road side clinics where we will hopefully become connected enough to start something that will be more sustainable and long term! We have always felt really connected to India as I lived there for four years after college working with an NGO in Mother Teresa's homes and in a Red Light District with underaged, trafficked sex slaves. Our plans have been to move back and use our nursing degrees for the benefit of the community and three kids later, its finally time to put the plans in motion! Any help that you would be willing to give would be so greatly appreciated! The funds raised will cover travel expenses ($8000), modest room and board (400$/month) and daily living expenses for our family of five. Thanks so much in advance, and with any donation (or without!) please provide us with your email address/contact info so that we can be in touch during our adventure! Love, The Tuckers
