Change for Exchange (youth exchange)

Aloha family & friends!

This is Mikaela Gautney. As some of you may already know, I am an Interact club student from Waimea Highschool. I live in Hawaii on the Island of Kauai. I attended a global peace conference this year on Oahu and it completely changed my perspective on the world! I applied for and have been recently accepted into the Rotary Youth Exchange program for the 2013/14 school year. I will soon be traveling to another country to learn a new culture and experience the world by attending my junior year of high school in another country.

Please consider donating to our "Change for Exchange" fundraiser. This will help sponsor me to participate in this years Rotary Youth exchange program.

Please join our Yahoo groups page too! change4exchange-[email redacted]. We will be posting pictures and sending updates to our group page, as I undergoe this incredible journey. You can also post a message to the group by emailing: [email redacted]

Mahalo for your love and support!
