Hopi to Australia June 2012

$200 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 56 months
Oneita Tootsie  POLACCA, AZ

In September 2011 my daughter Halli Lomayaktewa, was selected to participate with the People to People Student Ambassador program to travel to Australia in June 2012. Since that time my family and I have been raising funds for the tuition into the program. Your donations will help Halli reach her goal and travel to a place she can only dream of...

we are still raising funds for the trip in June. I have met my tuition goal of $7,000 and am now working on additional spending funds. Thank you to all that have donated.
I have lowered the overall goal of funds to $1,000.
We are glad to share the news that through your generous donations I will be able to experience an adventure that I would've not had, if not for the People to People Student Ambassador Program. I look forward to my trip and will post pictures of my adventure when during and after my trip on my Facebook page.
Askwali' for all your help!

The People to People Student Ambassador program was established by President Eisenhower, to foster peace and allow everyday people the experience of traveling abroad to learn of other cultures.
Although we are only months away from the trip date, this experience will stay with Halli a lifetime. Thank you to those that have given now and at the beginning of our challege!
