Send Priscilla to Tzucacab, Mexico!

Hello beautiful people!


My name is Priscilla and I am a sophomore at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have been accepted to participate in an amazing Alternative Spring Break opportunity in Yucatan, Mexico. However, it is a quite pricey endeavor that will  provide me with first-hand service learning in the rural Mayan town of Tzucacab. How pricey? Total cost of program and round-trip flight is 2,400. I am trying my best to fundraise but I cannot do this alone. 


So I am reaching out as my last resort because the trip date is approaching and I need to raise the funds as soon as possible. I have applied to many resources on campus, asked family members, sold snacks, raffled Mary Kay baskets, all while I try to stay on top of my classes and work. But it is not easy. Therefore, ANY contribution is GREATLY appreciated and it will help me make this opportunity come true.


Please help me by forwarding the message to anyone that you think might be interested in helping achieve my goal.


Thank you for your time!


With much hope, 
Priscilla



About ASB:

ASB in the Yucatan is a field course that focuses on the experience of intercultural exchange in Maya communities. Through working with community members on community-based projects, homestays with host families, and hearing stories from community members, students get a glimpse into life in Tzucacab, a small Mayan town. Activities are focused on hearing from a diverse group of community members about their town and their culture. This course is open to UCSC and other university students.
