Hi! My name is Jessie Dowd, I am 16 years old and live in a tiny town in Wyoming. I work at my local Boys and Girls Club and love working with kids! The money that is donated will go to the thousand dollar round trip flight and the 7000 dollar program fee to go help homeless children in Hawaii. The trip is in late June to early July and lasts a little over three weeks. I will not only be going on fun trips and activities with the kids, but I will also be bringing them school supplies, clothes, and other necessities to them in their own neighborhoods, along with the other teens in the program. This specific program includes a total of 200 community service hours helping homeless kids on two beautiful islands of Hawaii. Along with the fun activities I will be doing with the kids, this program includes cultural lessons and immerses me into a whole new way of life! I really want to be able to make a difference in these children's lives and help out a community in need, as well as learn the customs and way of life of a new place!
