Help get my son to Costa Rica!

C-Jaye is one of 21 kids chosen to go to Costa Rica with his Spanish class April 2014! We are so thrilled that he has been given this amazing opportunity to spend 10 days exploring Costa Rica, saving baby turtles, zip lining through the rain forest, meeting new people and learning another culture.

No amount it to small to help us reach our goal. C-Jaye will hand write thank you letters to everyone who helps him make this dream come true and he will be sure to share stories and photos from his trip with you! Thank you so much for your support.

Check out this video about the turtles they will be helping to save.


Here is what Ecoteach (the group that is taking there class) has to say about there upcoming trip.
