She is taking French this year and in February her class will be taking a trip to France to learn more of the culture, the language and herself. However, the finances come into play once again. There are no scholarships for this trip and the funds for it will have to come out of pocket.
For this reason I have set up a fundraiser for her in hopes to send her to Paris with her class, for her education and to reward her for being such a wonderful person. Our family finances are in such a state that I can not back the entire trip alone. I have begun collecting moneys from family and friends but they are not enough. The fundraiser is for nearly half of what is needed, the rest I can pull from other resources to make sure this trip happens for her.
I ask you, my readers, my online Twitter and Facebook friends to please give what you can. The amounts are from 5.00 USD up to 2000 and would go a long way in making sure this special young woman gets a chance to go to Paris.
Although she may someday go to France, it will not be in a learning environment and as such this trip is a once in a lifetime chance. I don't make it a habit of begging for anything. I have always been self sufficient enough to take care of my family but this one thing, I would and do beg anyone who would help. Share with her, share this with your friends and family. Send this awesome, sweet and intelligent young woman to France with her class.
I will make sure she takes many great pictures of her experience, and I will post them here and on facebook for all to see how this has effected her life. All of you can feel good about making this a reality for her.
