THE STORY:

NOW UNTIL FRIDAY, AUGUST 8TH, 2014

https://www.crowdrise.com/cch11/fundraiser/thanhnguyen

My name is Thanh Nguyen.

I grew up in Whitehall, Ohio, an enclave in the city of Columbus. My family lived in the near east neighborhoods as immigrants.

As a child, I barely attended camp due to family obligations/time constraints.

Now, I work at a summer camp where I supervise 8 youth + 1 high school worker and plan fun, educational activities. I want to enrich their lives.

My kids come from different and difficult backgrounds (poverty, non-traditional families, trauma) and I want to make camp their fun and safe place.

They deserve the same opportunities as everyone else.

Please help me support some of their educational field trips.

FIELD TRIPS:

1) Franklin Park Conservatory admission: $45 ($5*9)

NOTE: Excludes my admission.



*Finished trip on 07/07/2014!

2) Meals at Bangkok Restaurant: $132.14

NOTE: Prices changed as of 07/25/2014 because we ate family style: 2 appetizers & 4 dishes. Everyone (except I) received a soft drink. Also, I did not include taxes and tips in the initial estimate.



*Finished trip on 07/25/2014

3) Ohio State Fair (July 28th: NBC Family Fun Day):

$83 (6 youth + 1 HS worker + Supervisor) + $12 (1 HS worker + Supervisor admission)=

State Fair Total: $95 estimate

NOTE: Prices changed as of 07/26/2014 as I bought discount wristbands and admission and some of my kids cannot attend due to other circumstances.

(For riders, 2 wristbands=$20)



*Will finish trip on 07/28/2014

4) Columbus Children's Theatre: Into the Woods, Jr:

$105 ($10*10=100) +$5 processing fee



NOTE: Bought tickets on 07/17/2014 & price changed from $108 (estimate) to $105 (actual) because 1) Thrifty Thursday, 2) Group Discount (10+ people), 3) Called in so no Ticketmaster online fees

*Will finish trip on 08/07/2014

TOTAL: $377 ESTIMATE BUT reach goal is $500

All funds will go toward the trips/food and I will maintain receipts as proof.

**Funds above goal will be given to Central Community House for their programming needs!
