I am raising money to volunteer and live in Kenya for three months with the Child Wellness Fund. A huge chunk of this money will be spent on my plane ticket. The rest will go towards my living expenses, and I assure you I plan to live as modestly as possible. Any leftover money at the end of my trip will be donated towards the projects I will be working with in Kenya. None of the money will go towards my own bills or items needed to prepare for the trip – I will pay for that myself. If you would like more details, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will answer any questions you have.
I want to go to Kenya because I have always been drawn to working in Africa and this is the first step in realizing that dream. At the start of 2013 I began a Spending Freeze in order to save up as much money as possible. (I’m only spending money on bills, gas, groceries, and medical expenses – no eating out, shopping, buying awesome blank books or craft supplies, etc.) Feel free to follow that progress with me right here!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for any and all support you can give. It means the WORLD to me!
