Hello! Our names are Jessi Rikard and Rachael Henry. We are two high school students ages sixteen and fifteen who have a passion for traveling. Thanks for checking out our campaign!
We posted this campaign in hopes of raising money to help fund a study abroad trip to Japan in the summer of 2013. This trip will be a life-changing experience for the both of us. We will learn a new language, make new friends, and be introduced to a whole new culture and the people that make it.
Why We Want To Go
There are many reasons we want to go, a few being listed above. We both have a fascination with the Japanese culture and language and want to be able to experience it first hand. We would love to help teach English to children in lower-class areas, as well as teach them our culture. Not only will this be life-changing, but it will look great on our future college applications. This is an experience not many get to have, and we would love it if you could help us achieve our goal.
What We Need
$75.00 -Application Fee-
$500.00 -Initial Enrollment Fee-
The prices above are per-person. Considering there are two of us, we have to double that. As of right now, we don't know the prices for the actual trip, considering it is still too early for them to be posted. However, we do know that enrollment is on a a first-come, first-serve basis.
Thank you for taking your time to read through our campaign! Even if you can't donate, It would be great if you could share our campaign on any social networking websites and tell us some creative ways to raise money! We can not describe how excited we are to go on this trip. The money you are giving us would help not only us, but also our parents tremendously in paying for our initial fees!
