First off, let me say, thank you for even taking the time out to look at this page and just that alone is highly valued. This is a personal trip, but I feel it's an eye opener, as it'd be my first trip out of the US. And I thought why not, one of the most friendly places to visit. If I am graced with donations, I will certainly take my time to understand the culture of Phillipines as much as possible, on top of that high possible volunteer work. Even though it's a personal trip, it is a trip that I've been wanting to go on for 2 years now. And you might be asking why I haven't gone yet within that timeframe. I certainly agree that I should've gone there for my first visit at least last year, but I hesitated alongside with financial obligations. I was actually tad bit nervous about doing any form of donations, because of the possibility of it being taken the wrong way. I was introduced and engrossed further into the culture of the Phillippines due to my friends I've made over the internet that happens to be Filipinos, and how hospitable and welcoming that was about if I was to visit. I just felt that all the reviews of PH, at least the one with the most weight are the ones that described the friendliness of the people, and to me, that makes me think while there is genuine hospitality. Of course, any trip should always be done with caution regardless of who you meet over internet. Yet, if possible I'd certainly appreciate with all my heart. It is also representative of a 'possible' future I missed with a certain friend due to my unfortunate shifting financial obligations. Rather or not, I meet that friend, at least I could visit the beautiful place that they live and see the sights they enjoy on a daily basis. It'd even offer me change in perspective if it hasn't changed already considering I've made this. Now, to not ramble on, I will be happy if anyone spreads this information even if one doesn't support through the donation, the spreading of the word of this personal campaign would be highly valued.
