EVENT DATE: Jul 05, 2013
I have been selected to represent the United States by volunteering in South Africa this summer with International Student Volunteers (ISV), a volunteer and travel organization. I am seeking your help, so that I can make a difference abroad this summer.
ISV is an internationally recognized and awarded organization that appoints university students from the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K. to various countries around the world in an effort to impact entire communities and endangered habitats in need.
Your donation will go toward my program and travel costs (approx. $5,000), covering my accommodations, most meals, project materials and support, ground transportation, and tour guidance.
While on my environmental conservation project, I’ll receive hands-on, practical experience supporting such issues as endangered species preservation or habitat restoration, which will strengthen my understanding of the world at large and lead me on a path of ecological conservation to impact our world for years to come. Past ISV volunteers have rescued sea turtles, rehabilitated cheetahs, and assisted with reforestation and organic farming efforts, among other assignments. With your help, I will be able to broaden my awareness of environmental issues and sustainability, as well as aid in the safekeeping of flora and fauna.
The ISV program also has a strong educational component, and I am really looking forward to learning about the global issues facing other countries, and how I can help.
Again, I would greatly appreciate any support you can give — from a large donation, to a small donation — it will all add up.
Please know that any support you can offer will go a long way toward changing the lives of others, including mine!
(Deadline to submit donations is April 10th, 2013)
