See Ya In Philly!
Hello, my name is Jada Peten and I am 18 years old. I am raising this money in order to be able to go to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 25-28. I'm so lucky to have been chosen as a National Delegate from the state of Arkansas for Bernie Sanders! I have been involved with the campaign since August 2015 and it was hard balancing working with the campaign and finishing Senior year, but I did keep on top of my donations even though I did not have much. I am currently a full time college student and all of my money goes towards books, loans, and school supplies. My mother passed away during the middle of my senior year of high school this March, and so I have been practically on my own ever since.
Unfortunately, the trip to Philadelphia is very expensive and I'll need help paying for it in order to attend the convention. The flight to Philadelphia is around $340 and the hotel stay is around $442 a night.
Please help me raise money so that I can be a voice for the millions of Americans who are not able to attend the convention but are just as involved in the political process. I'm a freshman in college, so I don't have much money to use to send me to Philadelphia, which is why your help would be greatly appreciated.
