Our bus broke down: will you help us buy it back?

Hello! I need your help to support our project: I am the father of a Family House of the Pope John XXIII Community. In Giarre in the province of Catania my wife Raffaella and I take in, together with our natural children, people who need help such as boys from prison, children and people with disabilities.Ours is a large family: there are 14 of us! So in order to move all of us together, safely and quickly, we need a vehicle that suits our needs and the people who live with us.Our minibus, after 300,000 km and 20 years of use has broken down and right now our commuting is limited. The requests we get every day are many and we are aware of that, but we would not have opened this fundraiser if we did not really urgently need this bus.This year is a special year for us: we will celebrate 25 years of the opening of our family home. Over these years there have been several dozen people we have welcomed and who have a shared a piece of their lives with us. Even today, after 25 years, we are still renewing our YES to those who need a family in which to grow up loved, and we want to do so with adequate and safe means.In order to raise the €20,000 needed to purchase a van, we are relying on the help of people who know and love us.You can support this project in two ways:Donate to our fundraiser: any contribution, even the smallest, will make a difference.If, on the other hand, you want to do something even bigger, activate a personal fundraiser like us and help us engage many new people we otherwise could not reach by asking your friends, family and colleagues to support you with a donation.Other ways to donate:You can also donate by bank transfer or postal bulletin.IBAN: IT04 X030 6909 6061 0000 0008 036POSTAL ACCOUNT: 12148417Both payable to: Pope John XXIII Community AssociationReason to specify: 23R028 minibus CF Madonna della Provvidenza

Hello! I need your help to support our project: I am the father of a Family House of the Pope John XXIII Community. In Giarre in the province of Catania my wife Raffaella and I take in, together with our natural children, people who need help such as boys from prison, children and people with disabilities.

Ours is a large family: there are 14 of us! So in order to move all of us together, safely and quickly, we need a vehicle that suits our needs and the people who live with us.

Our minibus, after 300,000 km and 20 years of use has broken down and right now our commuting is limited. The requests we get every day are many and we are aware of that, but we would not have opened this fundraiser if we did not really urgently need this bus.

This year is a special year for us: we will celebrate 25 years of the opening of our family home. Over these years there have been several dozen people we have welcomed and who have a shared a piece of their lives with us. Even today, after 25 years, we are still renewing our YES to those who need a family in which to grow up loved, and we want to do so with adequate and safe means.

In order to raise the €20,000 needed to purchase a van, we are relying on the help of people who know and love us.

You can support this project in two ways:
  • Donate to our fundraiser: any contribution, even the smallest, will make a difference.
  • If, on the other hand, you want to do something even bigger, activate a personal fundraiser like us and help us engage many new people we otherwise could not reach by asking your friends, family and colleagues to support you with a donation.

You can also donate by bank transfer or postal bulletin.

Total project goal: 20.000 €

The Family Home "Madonna della Provvidenza" in Giarre, Catania, offers love and support to children and people with disabilities, providing love and care to anyone who needs it. There are 14 in the family and now they need your help to buy a new, safe and reliable bus for all their daily activities, but they cannot cover the 20,000 euros needed. You can help them too: come on, are you in?
