Trip to Europe

I'm Emily and I'm working towards earning a trip to England and Germany. My $3400 goal is now branched to Germany, and as the family fell through in Germany we are looking for donations to help us have a place to stay for the 29 nights we will be there. We had raised the amount thanks to our wonderful friend's who have helped us out! We can't thank you enough! Now we need that last little bit to hit the amount for the hotel room for $23 a night. 

I don't ask for much. If you can spare a dollar or two I would be very thankful to you. I'm travelling with my mom, Liz and will be visiting friends in London and around the UK as well as sightseeing. We have Becky's mum Nikki whom we will be staying with in London, and Becky, Markie and her Nan, we'll be staying with in Newton Aycliffe.

But with having the trip to Germany completely fall through with family there we are in DESPERATE need for donations. I'm praying someone will help us here. Even if it's only a dollar, I'm asking people to help us out. We have almost $1400 additional we must raise so we have a place to stay in Germany. We found a room for $23 a night, but it has to be for 29 nights. And the cost for $23/night is per person, in a hostel room with 4 others who share our room.

Many of you have asked, why not go get a job, and instead ask us if we can pay your way. We have been doing many jobs, and 80% of those monies that have totalled our $2900 is our own, the donations that are there? Most of the funds that we have had donated are named by the person donating it. A few of those, however are also purchases made by them, and we felt they were wonderful and wanted to make sure they were accredited with donation. 

For instance: A large thank you to:
Carole Ruikka (puppy Kono's new owner)
Billie Jo Grund (puppy lil' Focker's new owner)
Stefanie Marie (puppy Barnaby's new owner)
Katie O'Hara and family (puppy Izzy's new owner)
Bridget Fitsimmons  (puppy #7's new owner)

Thank you all and God bless!
