HELP ME GET TO SPAIN! - $3500 in 3 months!
I love traveling more than anything. Last year I worked for over a year to raise money to go on a school trip to New York, however I had to quit my job to focus on my senior activities and AP classes.
It is my dream to go to college, study abroad, and someday find a career in which I get to travel all over the country and the world.
My dad's side of the family is Spanish and came to America from Spain. I absolutely love learning about other cultures experiencing new places and meeting new people, so it would be the most amazing experience of my life to be able to visit where my own culture and people came from. I would love to travel internationally.
The only times I left the United States were on missions trips to Mexico where I helped out in an orphanage. However, that was much cheaper and through a church. I am unable to afford a trip of this size (the Spain trip, that is) out of pocket.
My dad makes 15 to $20,000 income and supports 7 people in my family. I will have to fundraise at least a majority of the cost for this trip if I am to go. And I am determined to go. I will be attempting other sorts of odd jobs and fundraisers, but I need all the help I can get.
So I asking for your help. Please help me get to Spain, help me fulfill my dream, and help me experience some of my roots for the first time. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
