I have the plane tickets from LAX to London and from Dublin to LAX with a $300 deposit. The rest needs to be paid by June 22nd (approx. $1300). I already paid for my plane ticket from Rome to Dublin up front (with money that I got from donations!) and I booked my hostel for my first night in London before the program starts! Things are really starting to come together! But I am still have a long way to go. Anything you can do to help would be super appreciated, and don't forget $10 gets you a postcard sent by me to you from Europe and $25 gets you a postcard sent by me to you from England, France, and Italy!

Hey guys! So I got a loan to cover the cost of the trip (the $8000). I just need to get my plane ticket now/money for food while I am abroad!

Hello everyone! I haven’t been updating much because finals start next week but I should be getting back into the swing of things soon.

I am still moving forward on participating in my UC Davis Summer Study Abroad program. This program will me an amazing academic opportunity for me to explore topics from my major in a personal and interactive environment. I will also be taking two classes and getting 8 credits toward my graduation! As an anthropology major I have spent excessive time examining the Grand Tour and that is the exact route that this program follows!

I have been accepted into the program and the program has reached minium enrollment so it has been officially confirmed. I need to buy my plane tickets as soon as possible but I do not have enough money to do that yet. Right now I have $325 in donations and $500 of my own money so I am getting there!

My plan right now is to take out student loans as it seems that there will be no other way for me to have the money in time but these will need to be paid back and I am still not sure if I qualify.

If you can donate anything I would appreciate it so much.

For $10 you can receive a post card sent by me to you from Europe

For $25 you can receive a post card sent by me to you from England, France, and Italy!

If you have any suggestions on how I can raise money I would love to hear them! I love providing a benefit for donating so if you have a creative idea let me know. I also have some friends who will be making things and selling them and donating the profits so if you would like to do that I would love to get in contact with you.

Hey friends!


I am not really sure how to do this but I have a huge favor to ask of you all. I am currently applying through UC Davis Study Abroad to do a summer study abroad trip. It’s from July 1st - July 30th and it goes to England, France, and Italy. It is also directly related to my major and topics I have studied closely (how exciting is that?). Unfortunately, financial woes have got me down. I anticipate that I will get a good amount of financial aid coverage (the only time being poor is cool) but I won’t even get to work that stuff out until I get accepted. But the chances of me being accepted are 99% for sure as it is basically just first come/first serve. Right now my issue is that I need to put in a $300 deposit with my application and I currently have $12.33 in my bank account. That is where you come in. I have a super awesome donation page open. 


For $10 you can get a super awsometastical postcard sent by me to you from Europe! But wait there is more!

For $25 you can get THREE post cards send by me to you from England, France, AND Italy!


My financial goal is listed as $8000 because if accepted (and I will be) I would need more money to be able to afford the plane tickets (which you have to get before financial aid is processed) and other various fees. Also, UC Santa Cruz will only be providing me $1500 in aid which means I will need to cover almost all of the cost myself. But I will not be deterred! I will adjust the goal amount if/when I win scholarships and receive aid to reflect the amount I need to pay for myself.


And, of course, if for some unknown reason this doesn’t happen (it will be happening) the money will be promptly refunded.


Even if you can't contribute I would love if you could reblog this so word gets out! Thank you so much guys and feel free to message me with any questions!
