Welcome to my crowd funding page! Thank you all for visiting and your willingness to help me raise the funds for my trip to Belize this Summer. I will be traveling in July with Girls Going Global to help make my mark on the world!! The funds I raise will not only help me get to Belize, but will also help the girls who live in the village of Belmopan go to the beach for the first time. Imagine that: living on the beach their entire lives but not being able to afford to go. This is one of the reasons why I'm so passionate about this organization as it is allowing me share my energy and talents to help someone else.
Here are a few of the activities that we will be taking part in: cave tubing, zip lining through the rainforest, rebuilding and painting the girls playground and much, much more.
This is a opportunity of a lifetime and I thank you all tremendously for your love and support.
Girls Going Global (GGG) is dedicated to empowering girls through travel and cultural exchange. Since our founding in 2012 GGG has successfully hosted two educational travel experiences to Canada and Costa Rica. As we embark on our third international trip we are committed more than ever to produce experiences that incorporate education, service, and adventure. In July 2015 we will be traveling to Belize and collaborating with Peace Corps Belize to host a GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) Summit.
