BENEFITING: CROSS-CULTURAL SOLUTIONS

EVENT DATE: Jul 16, 2011

Tiffany Sharp

THE STORY:

As some of you know, and some of you may not, I am planning on going to Ghana with a study abroad program in the summer of 2013. I will be volunteering, while also furthering my education. It's a wonderful experience to gain knowledge not only in books, but in the world around me. Giving back, while learning, may be the best thing I've ever heard of.

I am interested in getting some time there before then, to make sure it is exactly what I want to do, get to know the community, and to experience Ghana a little bit before I am there for a summer. I have found a way to do so!

Cross Cultural Solutions has all kinds of Volunteer programs, and one in particular lets you go for just a week, to experience volunteering abroad with community. It comes at perfect timing for me between Summer and Fall classes, so I have worked it into my schedule.

I will be helping in one of many areas. I might be at an orphanage, child care facility, school, or something otherwise. But I will be helping the community for the week that I am there. I will update you all as soon as I find out where I will be placed.

The program is approximately $3500. We are upping the goal to $4000, because of fees CR and Network For Good takes out. I will lower it if I reach my destination goal before then, though.
Airfare, vaccines, passport and visa not included. I will be fundraising offline for all of those things.

This is where you come in. I need sponsors to help me fundraise and to help me reach this goal by May 14, which is a little more than 60 days before my departure date - July 16.

That gives us little over 20 weeks! Just less than $200/week. I know that I haven't even earned this much in my entire stay here at Crowdrise over the last five months, but I believe that it is possible. I can't do it without your help though!

This would be a dream come true for me, and I really hope you can help me succeed in getting to Ghana for a week. My heart is there, now I just need to get there.
