Mark's Spring 2017 Study Abroad in Italy
Organized by: Mark Gorman
EVENT DATE Jan 01, 2017
Hello, my name is Mark. I am fundraising for an educational trip to Florence, Italy. I would really like to go because it will help further my education and to experience life in a country other than the United States. I am looking forward to taking classes that deal with communication and English, which would be really helpful for me, as I am majoring in Political Science. I am looking to raise somewhere around $15,000. To give you an idea of why I am asking for that much, the cost of the program is $7,845 and the estimated cost per month is $700 -$1000. I am expecting to be there for about 5 months, although the exact details have not been released. That would add up to between $11,345 and $12,845. All remaining money would go to books, paying the cost of the classes (tuition isn't covered in the program), and emergencies. For those who have made it this far and are wondering why you should donate let me tell you why. Besides the obvious, to further my education, there are rewards for donating. If you donate anywhere between $0.01 and $50, you will receive a thank you letter. Donate between $50.01 and $250, and you will receive a thank you video. Donate between $250.01 and $750, and you will receive a thank you video and a copy of a handwritten journal describing my time there, by yours truly. Donate between $750.01 and $1,500, and you will receive the thank you video, plus a copy of a video journal of my time there. Donate between $1,500.01 and $3,000 and you will receive the thank you video, the video journal, and the handwritten journal. Donate between $3000.01 and $5000, and you will receive the thank you video, both journals, and cut content/bloopers. Donate over $5000 and you will receive the thank you letter, both journals, cut content/bloopers, a souvenir, and my everlasting love and admiration. The three highest donors will get to choose a souvenir from the pile of souvenirs I plan to give away, with the top donor getting the first choice, second place getting second choice, and third place getting third choice. If you decide to donate, you will have to let me know whether you want the stuff or not and if you do, where you want me to send it. To contact me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will update this page as more information becomes available.
