#send Davis to Japan

For the past 3 years, our family has hosted a Japanese student for a one month stay.  This year we are hosting a year long student as well.  With each student my appreciation for Japanese food, language, and entertainment has increased.   I have been slowly learning to read and speak Japanese. Our current student, Takumi, is acting as my tutor to prepare me.  Through mowing yards I have been  working to save up the first $1000 of my own money.  I am currently at $700.  It is my greatest wish to go as an exchange student to Japan through the 4H Exchange Program, but I need your help!   

The first $2,000 is due by December 1st, the second payment of $1500 is due Februrary 1st, and the third payment, which will cover the airfare expense,  is due by April 15th. It would mean the world to me if you could support me! A gift of any amount would be Sugoi ('Awesome' in Japanese)!

(Thank you very much)
