Young people finding creative ways to raise money for WYD Madrid

.- With World Youth Day Madrid less than a year away, young people from various countries in Latin America are coming up with creative ways to raise the money needed to attend the event.

According to WYD Madrid 2011 organizers, young people like Karen, Paulina and Nataly in Medellin, Colombia, are holding bake sales and making breakfast at their parishes.

“After WYD in Sydney, we saw a video of the Pope announcing that the next one would be in Madrid,” Karen said. “We were filled with emotion and we asked the Lord to help us attend,” she added.

Deissy and her friends, also from Colombia, have been selling lunches in their city and going door-to-door to ask for donations.

In the Brazilian capital of Brasilia, many young people are taking on extra jobs in order to raise  money. “We are doing everything we can,” says a young Brazilian named Ieda.

Young Catholics in Arequipa, Peru are selling homemade key chains, bookmarks and books with religious pictures.

Most of the young people agree that the trip to Spain begins with their work to raise money.
