I would like to raise two scholarships to this program for two students I met last year from Japan: Momoe and Tomoki. They are wonderful kids, and because of the recent tsunami and earthquake in Japan, I'm not sure if they will be able to come to Maryland this year to be a part of the program and continue their education. I believe that these kids deserve a chance to come to CTY this summer and further their educational goals.
However, this is not cheap. It wil cost $5,000 per child, or $10,000 total. I know I cannot personally afford that amount, so I'm hoping that you will be able to help me out. Even if everyone can donate a few bucks, that would be wonderful, and I know that it would mean a lot to the children and to the program. If you donate on here, I would be able to compensate you with a piece of art or something knitted/crocheted - something small and handmade from me to you as a thank you gift.
This money will go to Johns Hopkins University for two scholarships to the summer CTY program for these Japanese students. I do not know much about their electronic fundraising system, but I can provide the information for the program below if you would prefer to skip the middleman (AKA: me) and simply donate in my project's name to CTY:

RE: Japanese Student Scholarships for Summer CTY 2011
If you'd prefer to send a check or money order.
Make sure you stipulate that this is a charitable donation for students from Japan to go to school at CTY over the summer!
Thank you so much! I look forward to working with you to make these kids dreams come true!
