If you are reading this, you have expressed an interest in donating towards my cause, which is an opportunity like no other. I will be travelling to Rajasthan, India; a culturally rich location which reflects the ancient traditions of India, on a ME to WE Trip. I am Indian, and I am most definitely excited to go on this trip, as I am giving back to India on a global scale.
About My ME to WE Mission Trip
The trip that I have decided to embark on is a life-changing opportunity that is offered to me by ME to WE Missions. It is an experience that will raise awareness for Women's Empowerment, empower me to become a concerned global citizen, develop me as a leader in my community, and provide me with the tools to change lives.
I will be leaving for this trip on August 2 2018 and returning home on August 18 2018, a duration of 16 days. The destination is Rajasthan, India.
Since I am very passionate about making a change locally as well as globally, I will be diligently fundraising for my trip. This will allow me to raise funds to support the trip cost and more importantly I will be able to share my passion and enthusiasm for creating positive change in the world with my community.
About ME to WE
ME to WE is a social enterprise and each ME to WE Trip takes place in a community where their charity partner, WE Charity, puts its 20-year history of holistic and sustainable development to work. Half of their profits are donated to WE Charity – helping make an even bigger impact on the community that I will be visiting in the near future.
The total cost of the trip is $5,595.00 and this includes all expenses – airfare, guides, facilitators and leadership programming, safety measures, accommodations, and meals.
My Diligent Fundraising Efforts
In order to fundraise the cost of the trip, I will be holding silent auctions, selling donated goods, performing henna tattoos at various local events, and much, much more. Henna for Hands is a small business that I initiated to help with fundraising for this trip. Please don't hesitate to follow my facebook page (Henna for Hands Brockville), which will provide updates as to what events I will be participating in. The link is attached here:

How Your Contribution Helps
I greatly appreciate any contributions to my fundraising efforts, as they help make this opportunity a reality for me. I hope that you will take the time and consideration to donate towards my trip, as it is a golden opportunity for me to give back to the global community as well as empower women.
My ME to WE Trip will allow me to:
-> Make a positive impact volunteering on WE Villages development projects that support one of the five pillars (clean water, food security, education, health, or opportunity).
-> Connect with learners and leaders from a different country; expanding their worldview as they’re introduced to different cultures, languages, and customs.
-> Be part of the solution, gaining a deeper understanding of social justice and development issues by engaging in leadership trainings, skill-building workshops, and designing an action plan to follow suit
Furthermore, I would like to extend my gratitude to all organizations, persons, as well as corporations that are supporting or considering supporting my trip.
Upon donating, I am able to give you a receipt to confirm your generous support towards my trip. But since ME to WE is not considered a charity, I am unfortunately unable to provide you with a tax reciept.
Thank you in advance for your time and support. I hope that you will take the time and consideration to donate towards my trip, as it is a golden opportunity for me to give back to the global community by helping to empower women. Any contribution will help support my trip and will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you SOOOOO much for your consideration, and I hope to, as well as look forward to, hearing from you!
