80% ($1,000 USD) of donations will go to my accomodations, program fee and airfare, which is very reasonable compared to other agencies, while the 20% ($250) will go to supplies for the children I will be teaching (notebooks, crayons, pencils, calculators, etc.) although these simple things may seem basic to us they make a world of a difference to them, who may not have anything at all.
*I plan to raise funds outside of Go Fund Me as well, with yard sales and various opportunities. I'd love to pay for it all by myself but student loans have a strong hold on my finances, unfortunately, but it won't stop me.
"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and to impoverish yourself if you forget the errand." - Woodrow Wilson
...and I believe every word, you won't just be changing my life but those of children who desperately need it.
*I will create a video afterward to allow you all who have donated to get to see the efforts made by the volunteers and the impact it's making on the community in San Jose.
