My Travel Story

by: John Sweeney Start Date: May 23, 2016 - End Date: May 22, 2017
My name is John Sweeney and I'm a 17 year old male from Canada. I have an extreme desire to travel, learn about the world, and do what I can make it a better place. I've recently made plans to go on a six week adventure half way across the world to Sri Lanka, an island just off of the southern coast of India, to help rescue and rehabilitate sea turtles in the area. I am planning on going next April with a volunteer program called GoEco. This will be a major event in my life and I have already made alot of sacrifices to be able to go on this trip. I signed up for summer classes so i can graduate high school a semester early to be able to get a full time job to save up money, and take time to go to Sri Lanka. I am funding this trip entirely by myself, however it would mean the world to me to have a few other people help me out. Please remember that every dollar counts as it is going towards a great cause, and that it doesn't have to be a large donation to make a difference. Thank you!
