Organized by: Thanh Nguyen
EVENT DATE Aug 09, 2014
NOW UNTIL FRIDAY, AUGUST 8TH, 2014
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.
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.
