Jieun's Trip to the USA!

Hello all! 

As some of you may know, my name is Sarah Hale. I have been volunteering with Sungbin Home for Girls in Gwangju, South Korea for the past five years. 

I am going to go home for a month in July on vacation and I have been given the awesome opportunity to take one of the girls home with me for a week! Her name is Jieun and I have known her since I began volunteering at Sungbin. She is so sweet and I am so happy Sungbin has given me the go ahead to take her on this trip. 

Myself and some of the other volunteers that help out with Gwangju's community of orphanages are fundraising to help pay for her round-trip ticket and activities while she will be staying with my family and I in the state of Maine, USA.
