Send Kailin to Sing Through Europe

Kailin has been given an opportunity to tour Europe for two weeks as a Florida Ambassador of Music with several other band and chorus students throughout the state. The trip will take place in June of 2016. She will travel through 7 countries in 16 days and be able to sing in some of the most beautiful settings. Settings most of us will only ever see in history books. She was given a promise of funding for the trip 4 months ago. Deposits were made and her application was accepted. Last week she was told that funding would no longer be accessible. While I can definitely pay for all of the incidentals, I as a single mother could never truly afford to give her this gift.
I know that this trip will give her something far more than I could ever give to her. And that's the gift of seeing the world in such a way that her perception of life will be forever changed. She will see that all things are possible and the world really does exist outside of her hometown and the books she has read.
She and I both will still be saving and working hard towards making this dream trip a reality. We technically have until April to pay for the trip; however the longer you take to pay, they could charge up to an additional 12% in fees. Our goal is to pay the cost of the trip off as soon as possible to avoid those fees.
Kailin and I both know there are so many people in need that you could choose to donate to. But if you are led to donate, our hearts will be forever thankful. And if you're unable to, won't you send up a thought or prayer of encouragement?
As a mother, I know I am biased. But I feel in my heart this kid has the heart and soul to make a difference in the world. This trip could be the very catalyst to make her believe that she can!
