Rene's Summer Abroad Program

My name is Rene Avalos, I'm 15 years old and am raising money to go to Mexico this summer for a lanugage program.   Here's a picture of me studying, holding my lizard, Phoenix.  The trip that I'm fundraising for is important to me because I would like to learn more about my culture and language (I'm half Mexican).  I would be able to study Spanish in the town of Guanajuato for 4 weeks and experience independence.  

The program costs $4,700.  My parents are donating $3,000 but I need to fundraise the last $1,700.  Please help make my dream a reality!
