Grace's Trip to England

I am writing you to ask you to consider supporting me financially in an endeavor that is very important to me. The Saint Constantine School of which I am a part is assembling a trip to England this summer.  Teachers, students, and their families are all welcome to attend. My grandparents and great aunt will be traveling with me! We will be seeing London, Bath, Stratford-on-Avon and Oxford.  We will be able to learn and discuss much history with the faculty as we travel. It is meant to be an educational and cultural experience as well as a lot of fun.

 This dream of going to Europe is something my parents have encouraged me to pursue. I have to admit that the possibility of going to Europe still seems outlandish, even as it grows more and more possible. It is important to me because so many of the writers that have informed me morally and stylistically, like J.R.R Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and G.K. Chesterton, have their origins in England. It would be an enriching experience to see the land they came from. Other than literary history, there are many other things I know I can learn from England, and doubtless dozens of other things that I’ll learn without expecting it.

 I worked last summer teaching swimming lessons and made a nice amount of money, but it isn’t even half of what I need pay for this trip and I would like to save what I can for college. So, I am humbly asking for any help you feel comfortable giving to help me pursue this dream. 
 
The trip will cost $3,500 for 10 days.  It will cover airfare, hotels, and all tours for one student's rate. We are expected to start paying monthly toward the trip next month to be paid in full by May.  Anything you can add to the fund would be most appreciated. I humbly realize that my going on this trip will be an opportunity that many can only dream of.  It is a great privelege, and I will carry my gratitude for you assistance in this for my whole life!
