My Travel Story

by: Claudia Hayes Start Date: May 20, 2017 - End Date: Nov 19, 2017

Hi ! My name is Claudia and I am currently studying to become a welder. I recently started to participate to volunteering projects across the world, and I can't tell you how much impact it makes to the community you're working in and how much it made me become a better person, always wanting to give more of my time and money to help people in need.

I've already been in Thailand, all in my cost, and it was really expensive (though it was worth it, completely!) and I am now looking forward to do the ''Living With Big Cats'' volunteering project. I always loved animals (and I really mean LOVE) and the volunteering program I am looking forward to participate to is here to take care of the animals in Africa, since a lot of them are poaching victims. This helps to give them the life they deserve, after all the painful things humans did to them for the last centuries.

Unfortunatly, as a student, I do not have the chance to make a lot of money, working 10 hours a week, and to save it for my volunteering projects abroad, since I have a lot of things to pay for my studies, and that's why I am starting to fundraise to help me pay a part of my experience, at least. 

I can't do as much volunteering as I would around the world, and that's making me upset, since I now know how much of an impact it makes for the people you are helping there.

Thank you a lot, really. With every fundraise, you're helping me to get closer to my dream and to help other people around the world!
