As a student at Evergreen Valley High School, I’ve had a great opportunity to learn a lot about the world. My knowledge has grown so much over the last few years that I am grateful for all that I’ve learned. My interest in the world is particularly important because when I go to college I want to study to be an archeologist, and I think understanding today’s cultures will definitely help me understand past cultures better. When I heard about the opportunity to travel to, and learn about, the developing world with Global Glimpse, I knew that knowledge could grow infinitely this summer and I’d be a stronger candidate for college next fall.
As a participant in the program, I’ll be traveling for three weeks to Nicaragua, meeting leaders in community and getting to see how people live there. I will also do community service to help the people of Nicaragua while I am there. I know it will be completely different from my own experience, but I’m anxious to see exactly how. I think that studying the developing world by being there will be a great way for me to grow, learn and connect with ideas that have only existed in the classroom until now. I am also working on learning my Spanish, something that will definitely happen in my three weeks in Nicaragua. I believe that this opportunity to learn those language skills will have a very positive impact in our own community, as there are so many Spanish speakers here, who I’d like to be able to communicate more effectively with.
The reason I’m writing you is to ask for a small donation to help sponsor my trip. I need to raise $4,800 dollars over the next two months, and I thought that one of the best ways to do so would be to reach out to people who care about me to ask them to help support my trip. If you’re kind enough to help me with this, it will give me a great learning opportunity to learn a lot about the world and a step closer to my goals of how to help others in the world. While people give a whole range of amounts, please donate what you’re comfortable with, it would make a great impact on my fundraising.
Thanks for taking the time to read this letter and think of helping me get this once in a lifetime opportunity.
I hope that all is well with you.
