Buy A Couple in the Corps: A Peace Corps Journey from A Couple’s Perspective

Help Educate supporter Eric Starr will donate a portion of sale proceeds from his book
A Couple in the Corps: A Peace Corps Journey From A Couple's Perspective to Help Educate! Click here to find it on Amazon Smile!

A Couple in the Corps is a book about a couple's epic adventures while serving as Volunteers for the Peace Corps in Nicaragua. Within these pages, Kathryn Chinnock and Eric Starr face relentless project challenges, complex geopolitical history, cultural differences, health problems, safety concerns, language barriers, random encounters of fate, jungle excursions, heartache with children in the streets, and a necessity for humor. The Peace Corps provided this married couple with the opportunity to discover true grassroots international development and to represent the United States in a foreign nation in a positive manner. Delve into this page-turning book and experience the fascinating country of Nicaragua and its wonderful culture in a way that most people could never imagine! A Couple in the Corps will leave you with a living description of how incredibly rewarding Peace Corps service can be.

Donate Your Car and Support Help Educate

Have an old car and looking to support Help Educate? We are now partnered with CARS, a national vehicle donation program that supports nonprofit organizations like ours. Seventy present of the sales of your used car will go towards Help Educate, and the remaining thirty percent will support transportation needs of older adults in the San Diego area.
Here’s how it works – CARS will arrange for your car to be towed and sold at auction, taking care of all the paper work, and you can write off the donation for tax purposes. If your vehicle sells for $1,000, subtracting average tow and auction fees ($150), $850 is left. Help Educate will get 70% ($595) and CARS get 30% ($255). 
HERE today! For more information, please see the CARS brochure.
