Dear Ones,
This summer I have the incredible opportunity of going to Uganda to do humanitarian work. I am so so excited for this opportunity! It's always been a dream of mine and I am so lucky to already be fulfilling it when I am so young. However the trip is very expensive and I need to fund raise the money to be able to go. I know that many of you are poor students, but I would be eternally grateful if you would be willing to donate something. Click HERE to do so. Some of the programs that have been implemented in countries HELP goes to are listed below. You can donate as little as $3 and do so easily through PayPal on the link. To donate to my trip simply put my name (Rebekah Arnesen) in the comment line when you donate.Your donation may not seem like much, but by helping me, you are helping change the world! Peace and Love! Thank you much!
