World Youth Day website accepting donations

.- The organizers of World Youth Day Madrid 2011 announced this week that those wishing to make donations to defray the costs of the massive event can do so through a new website.

Through the website www.muchasgracias.info, donors can select from several ways to contribute to the World Youth Day festivities, including: liturgical vestments, transportation for those with disabilities, and financial aid for youth from impoverished countries.

Gabriel Gonzalez-Andrio, director of marketing for WYD 2011, said the idea is to motivate people to collaborate with WYD according to their means.

He explained that WYD attendees will cover two-thirds of the cost of the event, while business sponsorships and private donations will cover the remaining one-third.

“The objective is to spend as little as possible and raise as much as necessary, in addition to saving as much as possible on all expenses,” said event financial director Fernando Gimenez Barriocanal.

Those who wish to donate to WYD 2011 can visit www.muchasgracias.info
