My Travel Story

by: Saylor Martian Start Date: Nov 12, 2016 - End Date: May 11, 2017
Hello! My name is Saylor Martian and I'm currently a senior in high school. My boyfriend, Jared Larsen, and I will be taking part in a volunteer project in May of 2017. We will be traveling to a rural village in Thailand which is about 500km north of Bangkok. We will be volunteering in the village, Baan Tha-Thit, for 3 weeks.

The volunteer work includes a variety of different tasks from wildlife conservation, to farming, to teaching the locals. Our main duty will be volunteering in an Elephant sanctuary.

However, despite the fact we are doing volunteer work. we still must pay for accommodations, travel, and any supplies or tools we will be using.

We are starting this GoFundMe page to help fundraise for the project. Any donation helps and is greatly appreciated, not just by us, but by the people of this village in Thailand.

As an animal-lover, and a pre-veterinary student, I am passionate about this trip and the work I will be doing. This will help fuel my passion for helping animals, as well as it will help me gain vital knowlege about animals that will help towards my education. 

Thank you so much for your generosity.
