Youth Empowerment Tour to Europe

 Hi. My name is Taalib-Said and my name is Shaumba-Subira and we have been members of OrigiNation since we started taking class at the age of 1.5.  OrigNation has been around for 21 years. Even though we are children, I'm 13 and my sister is 8, we have learned a lot about ourselves at OrigiNation. We are both members of a dance company at OrigiNation and have performed for a lot of events and charities in dance and theatre. We have also made a lot of friends. This June we have been invited to travel with OrigiNation to London and Paris for their Youth Empowerment Tour through the Arts. We will be performing, teaching, (yes we will both be teaching) touring, learning about culture there and performing community service for children that need help.  This experience will really change our lives and the lives of the people we meet.  But we need your help. We have to raise $4,000 by May 1, 2015 , in order to go. We are working together and splitting whatever we raise. My sister is also organizing and designing clothes to host a fashion show to raise more money and I'm thinking about other small things I can do to raise the money. Anything you give us would really help us reach our goal.  Thank you for taking the time to read this a hopefully  you can help.  Enjoy the video.
