Help Me Go To WKF Jr. World in Oct.

For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of competing at the WKF World Karate Championship.  At this year's Nationals, I won the gold in my age and weight division of 12-13 year old +50kg.  I also competed in the 14-15 year old -70kg because I wanted to qualify for worlds in October, when I turn 14.  I won the gold in that division so now I get to go to Tenerife, Spain next month.
This world championship is going to be a very expensive trip and I am asking for your help in getting me and a chaperone  there.  The USA karate federation does not provide monetary support for us athletes, so the burden of these expenses are on my parents. 

My mom had a very successful campaign a few months ago which helped my sister and me with travel expenses to the Pan American Karate Championship.  I didn't think I was going to qualify for this year's world championship, but I did!  So now I am asking all my karate friends and family for just a small donation to help me realize my dream of representing the USA at this year's world championship in Tenerife, Spain.  Any donation would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your continued support.
