Help Send Sharon & Angeliki to I.V.
They grew up together as best friends and were very excited last month, when they received the wonderful news that they were granted scholarships to attend Ionian Village, a 20-day spiritual and cultural based summer camp in Greece. They will join 200 youth from all around the country and be fully immersed in their culture and faith. Visiting archeological sites, learning the Greek language, and especially the opportunity to visit monasteries and venerate the saints in person are some incredible things they look forward to experiencing.
Though they are blessed beyond measure to have this incredible opportunity, there are numerous expenses that the scholarships do not fully cover. We still need to raise funds for their round-trip airfare from Honolulu to JFK, onto Athens, Greece, as well as I.V. camp fees. Hopefully, any extra funds could be used as spending money on the trip and donations to the different monasteries they visit.
These young women are fundraising personally and selling cookies, pretzel sticks, and marshmallow cereal bars (along with anything else they can think of), to make this once-in-a-lifetime trip happen.
As their moms, Anita and I are also trying to help them achieve their goals. We're creating this page to crowd-source and reach out to our family, friends, and anyone else able to donate to these amazing young women. We are grateful for the largest to the smallest donations and believe no donation is too small. Even $1 is greatly appreciated!

Much mahalo, Efharisto, and God Bless.
We are amazed and grateful for the wonderful start to our fundraising effort!
We thank everyone who has made a donation and cannot believe the love and support we are receiving.
We would like to ask our friends and family to please continue to --share-- our 'go fund me' link for these girlz to get to Greece! :)
