Competing at the World Finals is a 5-day event and will cost over $1,000 per child (and another $1,000 per adult coach/chaperone) plus the cost of shipping all of the props. This is not an easy cost for many families to absorb--especially on such short notice.
This event will provide these children with an amazing opportunity to interact with other children from all over the US and the world.
Any donation amount will help to offset these costs and will be hugely appreciated!
In addition to this GoFundMe site, the team is planning a number of other fundraising efforts including: Friday afternoon popsicle sales, a raffle, a huge garage sale on May 10th, corporate sponsorships and anything else we can think of. Any ideas or suggestions are welcome!
