Educational Opportunity of a Lifetime


My name is Trinity Madison.  I am a 14 y/o student.  I was selected to travel on an educational tour to Paris in June of 2015 with 9 of my peers and my teacher from middle school.  This is an incredibly amazing learning opporutnity and a dream of mine.  I created this page to support my fundraising efforts.

About Me
I am an 8th grade, straight A student with a passion for God, learning and helping others. I love reading, painting, art, singing, making bracelets and track-n-field.  I have not quite figured out my career goals, yet my mom tells me that I have plenty of time. I have an interest in becoming a book reviewer, teacher, writer or a magazine CEO.  I also have an interest in making the world a better place and passing on my love for the arts. 

About the Learning Opportunity of a Lifetime
The 'Paris in Depth' tour, is an 8 day, 7 night educational trip.  It will include guided tours to some amazing landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Versailles, Opéra district, and Notre Dame Cathedral.  I look most forward to experiencing Van Gogh's Auvers-sur-Oise, Monet's Giverny Gardens and French culture. 

About the Cost
The total cost of the trip is $3460. This includes airfare, insurance, hotel accommodations, travel while in Paris, a full time tour director, guided sightseeing, breakfast, dinner and admission fees to museums/landmarks. This does not include the cost of lunch or personal allowances.  I have babysat and made bracelets to save for personal allowances.  My mom is working extra to support my trip expenses and I am so thankful for her help.

I love art and I love learning.  This educational opportunity will provide me with both.  It will also help to prepare me for my future in this competitive world. I really, really desire to participate in this amazing learning opportunity.  Your financial contribution, however small or large, will place me one step closer to my Paris trip.

To date, my French teacher, peers, mom and I have participated in 6 fundraising events.  We have 4 more lined up and are looking to plan others.  I am confident that your support (in combination with the support of family, friends, my local community and various fundraisers) will help to make my dream of going to Paris a reality.  

The trip is scheduled for June of 2015; however, all fees and expenses must be paid in full by May 1, 2015.

Please contribute today.  I THANK YOU so very much!
