Dear Family and Friends,
Greetings! I pray that this letter finds you and your family well. My name is Malani Terry, an eighth-grader at Howell Middle School North. I am a 13 year old achiever who besides being a community volunteer enjoys making music, reading and cooking. I am currently a proud member of Rays of Hope Inc. (ROH). Our organization is involved in creating service and leadership development opportunities for our youth. ROH focuses on empowering us to become caring, productive and engaged members of our communities.
That being said, I have recently been accepted and committed to be a part of Girls Going Global's 2020 International Travel Camps with Girls Going Global (GGG). This non-profit organization takes girls of color on international trips, where they dedicate time to empower girls while getting them to learn about new cultures and becoming leaders. The experience of global issues and participating in service learning projects getting The Global Girl Experience, I am hoping to gain a life changing experience of being exposed to different cultures and making a difference in the world. You can find out more by visiting their website http://www.girlsgoingglobal.org/.
With their International Travel Camp I will be heading to Italy on July 12th staying through July 19th gaining an experience of a lifetime. Traveling across the country has been something that I have wanted to do for years and that dream is finally coming true. But, like everything in life, there is a cost associated with affording me this amazing opportunity. The total cost to attend this trip is $3,500 all inclusive. That is a lot of money for one family to give all at once which is why I need your help! I am reaching out to friends and family to ask you to invest in me so I can fulfill this journey. Any donation of any amount would be extremely helpful in helping me to reach my goal. It would be helpful to receive donations at your earliest convenience.
I ask that if you could, please send a donation to GGG on my behalf. This is a great opportunity that I really do not want to miss out on and your support ensures that more kids like myself have the chance to serve as the leaders of today. I am not asking for a set amount, just for a donation of whatever you could spare. I really hope that you would consider donating for me to go on this amazing trip.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!
