Working Hard to Reach My Goal!
October 30, 2017
Hi! My name is Ireland and I am 13 years old. I am planning to go on a Me to We Youth Volunteer trip to Ecuador during the summer of 2018. On this trip I will be provided with opportunities to work side by side with locals on development projects that will help remove barriers to education and health. This amazing experience will not only provide me with opportunities to learn about another culture, but also help me develop lifelong leadership skills that I will be able to apply upon my return. I look forward to sharing my experiences with my classmates, school and community in the hopes to inspire others to make a positive change themselves.
The overall cost of my trip to Ecuador is $4,295. To date, I have raised funds through bottle drives, neighbourhood garage sales, a gift card raffle and other community events. I have also asked family to donate money to my trip in lieu of birthday and other celebratory events. The purpose of this account is to help me to continue to fundraise on a larger scale in order to achieve my goal. I am respectfully asking for any small donation you can afford to help me make this trip happen.
Thank you for your support!
