School Trip to India

I am writing to tell you about an exciting opportunity that has come my way. The Honors program at the Community College of Allegheny County is going to travel to India. Since I am in the Honors program I have the chance to travel to India as a part of the group. The trip is being has been planned by Professor Srjuana Kanjula. The Honors program has taken similar trips in the past. The trip has been designed for academic exposure, cultural exploration, and community service.
            I have the chance to earn five honors credits with three honors courses. The opportunity to go to India is a two-week long trip. The trip will start January 2nd to January 13th 2018. In that time, some of the sites we will be seeing are:
·       Qutub Minar
·       Humayun’s Tomb
·       Raj Gat
·       Lotus Temple
·       Taj Mahal
·       Fathehpur Sikri
·       Agra Fort
·       Gandhi Memorial
·       Jawaharlal Nehru University
·       Dharmsala
·       Dalia Lama’s Palace and more
          The cost of the trip is approximately $2,500 per student.  I have payments due August31st, September 12th and October 1st. All three payments are $750 . My last payment is due November 1st for around $650.The trip costs do include airfare, airport transfer, accommodations, transportation, breakfast, some dinners, entrance fees for monuments, and taxes. I will also have to purchase a passport, travel visa, and travel insurance. Each student going on the trip is responsible for their own funding and will be involved in joint fundraising. The trip has a limit of 14 students for the trip and it is first come first serve.  I am saving money I earn from working to help pay  along with donations. I will also try to have a fundrasier to help me raise money for my trip. 
            I am writing to you to ask if you would like to help me go on the Honors program trip to India. Any amount would be greatly appreciated and would help towards my goal. This is an exciting opportunity and a once in lifetime chance. I do appreciate your support in this exciting chance. I do understand if you are not able to help, and I certainly appreciate your time
