Raised by 80 people in 5 months
Dear family, friends, colleagues and community members, 

At only 8 years of age, Andrea Matei, has been selected by TEAM CANADA DANCE to represent Canada on the world stage in the children’s division in the Jazz, Ballet and Modern categories. The best dancers from around the world will be competing for the World Champion Title! Dance is not recognized in Canada as a sporting event even though many of the dancers train up to 7 days per week, are as flexible as gymnasts, as graceful as figure skaters and as dedicated as any other Olympic athlete. Andrea will be dedicating most of her summer to train for this event along the best dancers in the country and learn from the best choreographers and teachers. She is required to raise funds to help cover all costs associated with travel, rehearsal, coaches, Team Canada jackets, hotels and participation fees.

Andrea has been dancing since the age of 3 and dancing competitively since age 5. Over these past years, her team’s as well as her solo entries have received a number of overall awards at provincial dance competitions. Andrea is 1 out of 25 dancers in the country selected to represent Canada at the world level from hundreds of entries.

We are currently looking for sponsors and donors to help support her participation at the World Dance Championship in Poland and are reaching out for your contribution and support.  

If you could also share this GoFundMe Page with your contacts that would be greatly appreciated!

May you and your family be blessed and rewarded for your generosity with lots of health and joy in life. 

Sincerely, 
mom Daniela
dancer Andrea

Dearest family and friends,

With your generous help, Andrea's fundrasing campaign for her participation at the World Dance Championship has reached $5,000.00. For this we want to thank each and everyone of you - THANK YOU!!! While this is a big number, it is still just about a half of the costs associated with this journey, and Andrea is still looking to fundraise the other half by the end of November. If you can share this with your contacts, that would mean a lot and hopefully help Andrea with her fundrasing goals.
Andrea has been selected to represent Canada in 4 routines and is training fiercely every Saturday and Sunday to prepare for this amazing Championship also referred to as "the Olympics of Dance". The team will perform one of the routines in Hamilton later this fall.

Latest news: besides the ballet and jazz large groups that Andrea was originally selected for Team Canada Dance, she will also participate at the World Dance Championship in 2 small groups, one in jazz and one in ballet. She has trained hard for the last two weeks and this is only the beginning. She will also spend most of her weekends from now till November in the studio, rehearsing and practicing the routines with the team. With all this excitement, Andrea still needs to raise close to 5,000 CAD to cover the costs asdociated with this event. Please support if you can and spread the word. Thank you and God bless!

Now that training for the World Dance Championship has started, I can see how hard these kids train, from morning till night each day for 10 days straight, with minimal breaks in between. Most adults like us would not be able to keep up, yet these fierce little dancers do. With sore legs and aching bodies, they wake up bright and early each morning only to keep going, more training, more choreography, more practice each day, all with a smile on their faces. Please, if you haven't already, don't hesitate to contribute whatever change you can spare to support these young talents in their big journey. Andrea is almost half way through her fundraising efforts and keeps counting on your generosity. Appreciate your support, in whichever way or shape it may come (likes, shares, donations, etc). Forever grateful, God Bless.
