THE STORY:

~~My name is Sylis Raiford; I have recently been chosen as a student ambassador for a wonderful educational program, called “People to People International”.  This program was originally founded in 1956, by our 34th President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower.  President Eisenhower believed that citizen interaction would promote cultural interaction and world peace.  He felt that if students could travel and meet students from other countries this would help the world learn, understand, and build relationships, which could encourage world peace. President Eisenhower concentrated on the youth because they are the future leaders and somehow this experience would give them a better understanding of others and ensure the success of their generation.  This program is still in existence today it has been acknowledged by our current President of the United States.

This opportunity will open doors that I would not have normally experienced if not been chosen. There are four countries participating in the People to People program and only forty students were chosen. This program will allow me to travel to the Mediterranean this year. I will be able to visit Italy, London, and France, where I will tour a variety of sites, such as the Sistine Chapel and see the paintings of Michelangelo and so much more.  I will meet students from other countries and have a chance to live with a family from another country and learn their culture.

And this is where I need your help.  This opportunity is very costly and I request that you sponsor me on this once in a lifetime opportunity.  I believe this experience will enable me to become a better person now and in the future.  What I will learn from this experience will help mold and develop me as a future leader and pass my experiences onto my fellow classmates and the world. 

Without your support this opportunity would not be possible.  I would appreciate any donation you would be willing to give.  Remember, this would only be a donation to me but on a larger scale an investment towards the future success of our next leaders.

Thank you in advance for all your support and during my travels I will keep you up to date on my progress through postcards.

And please remember any amount is appreciated nothing is to small !!!!!


Sincerely,
