Send Sarah-Jane to Spain to Study

Sarah Jane has been accepted as a CIEE Global Navigator, with an opportunity to spend a month in a Spanish immersion program with college credit. With 3 A.P. courses, she holds a 4.0 GPA and also studies Art & Japanese. She runs her school club for raising awareness to erase the stigma around mental health illness & participates regionally in that effort. She also dances with a performance troupe & eats healthier than any teen I know. She loves spending time with her brother & her friends. She's developed her own organizational skills & supports to make all of this happen, all while keeping a positive attitude. The only thing she lacks is the funds to make this trip happen!

To secure the scholarship she's been awarded through her own independent efforts, a $1,000 deposit is DUE JANUARY 8. Another $2,050 will be due shortly after, and then there's plane fare and ancillary costs. Yes - it's an expensive proposition! And one she's willing to work for. She's started organizing to have a giant yard sale, is available to be commissioned for art pieces and do odd jobs (please contact me with what you need done) and is planning other fundraising efforts too.

It's a big ask. I'm humbled to be in a position to help her. make this happen, and I can't do it without help. If you can contribute any amount, it will be appreciated more than you know. We are investing in her future, and moreover - in her present: supporting her goals will buoy her to continue to be the outstanding, contributing person she is. She's part of our future. Thank you!!!
