England and Ireland LU Send Trip

Hi Everyone. My name is Atris, I am 20 and currently in my third year of college. Over the summer, I found out about Liberty University’ travel program LU Send. LU Send has many different trips planned, but one was a trip to England and Ireland for next March, and is focused on the life of CS Lewis. As someone who grew up listening to The Chronicles of Narnia series during every road trip, and who has always wanted to visit England and Ireland, I immediately felt the desire to apply. Not only would I be able to fulfill a dream and learn more about a favorite author, but I could also take the trip for class credit and be one step closer to finishing my degree! The desire was there, but there was also an obvious hurdle: I would need to pay for the trip. My parents and grandparents have been amazing by paying for my college so I could remain a full time student and not have to worry about a job. Well, this opportunity would be an add-on to my education, so I want to earn and raise the money for it on my own. I started an Etsy shop, and have been trying to sell bracelets through that, in addition to finding families to babysit for around town. These things are rather difficult to maintain while also trying to keep up with classes, so I am at the point where I don’t think that I will be able to reach my savings goal by the November application deadline. The $3500 goal will cover most of the costs for this trip: transportation, flights, housing, food, fees. I am hoping to earn whatever else is needed for the trip, in addition to some spending money for souvenirs. Any help would be appreciated. If you can donate, please donate. If you would prefer to support me through my Etsy shop, it’s CitrusBea Boutique. Even if you can’t do either of those, please pray. Pray for the students going on this trip, the coordinators planning things out, the teacher that is preparing their lessons. Prayer is amazing and will accomplish exactly what God intends. I have never traveled outside the US and, God willing, I will be able too next March. For anyone who is able to support me in this, no matter how, thank you so much! I can’t express how excited and grateful I will be if I am able to reach my goal and go on this trip.
