I have been invited to go to China by the People to People organization for 17 days on the Great Wall & Beyond program. We will travel to Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and Guilin, China.
I think this would be a good opportunity to see new things, learn about life in another country & be able to give back to the world. Plus my time in China would count towards my credits to graduate from high school.
The $8000 I'm trying to raise would cover the tuition, the International airline surcharge, my visas, travel insurance & spending money.
We will learn to cook some Chinese dishes, learn kung fu, investigate unique caves, help Chinese children learn English & more.
Here is a piece of information from the website:
Journey to the Great Wall"”and beyond"”as you explore this magnificent country steeped in ancient traditions,unique customs, and cutting-edge growth. The grandeur of China is as iconic as it is unforgettable. Enjoy an encounter with a panda. Learn kung fu from expert trainers. Swat ping pong balls with local students. This is China as few people see it: behind the scenes with intriguing people, respected experts, and travel managers who promise to make this an adventure of a lifetime.
I appreciate any & all donations! Thank you for your support!!
