Teens Westward Bound Trip

Hi, my name is Lauren Simpson and I’m about to go on the trip of a lifetime.  This trip, Teens Westward Bound, will help me discover who I truly am and hopefully will make friendships that will last a lifetime. I am very grateful to be selected from hundreds of nominees. I will be gone for 23 days traveling across the US, North Carolina all the way to California and back, traveling to 22 states discovering who I am and the country I call my home. 

During this trip, I will get to see places that many may never see, including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, the Olympic Training Center, Disney Land, Mount Rushmore, many of our nation’s national parks, tour several colleges and much more.  We will learn responsibility by shopping for food and cooking meals for all 82 people.  We will get designated chores every week, and get to discover the US without any distractions of the online world, as we are not allowed to bring cell phones or anything that can connect to Wi-Fi so that we can see the country and experience every second of it.

This trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I am very excited to go on.  This trip, however, is very expensive.  I would love if anyone would donate to help me cover some of the costs of the trip.  No amount is too little.  I would appreciate anything you would like to offer even if it is just a prayer while I am gone.  If you are in my local area I would be willing to work for your donation, whether it is walking your dog or washing your car…whatever you need. 

I thank you in advance for your donations, prayers, and just for reading this.  I would also appreciate it if you would share on any of your social media pages to help out.
