EVENT DATE: Oct 24, 2010
HOURS PLEDGED: 10,000
Most of my students have NEVER traveled outside Alaska. The farthest they have gone is Anchorage. Most haven't even been to a movie theater. They want to experience more. I think this is the greatest opportunity for my students to see more of the world and do the things that they can't within the village. This trip will provide my students opportunities to try new things and experience another world and culture.
They want to travel to Minnesota/North Dakota. The reasons behind their locations are that their teacher [me] is from the area and knows a lot of activities to do. But! The coolest reason is that they read a book this semester, "Walk Two Moons" and they want to see the places that the books main characters also saw: The Badlands and Mt. Rushmore.
Please help me raise money so my students can see the world outside of the village and experience things that you or I wouldn't think twice about. I know it will impact them in many ways and they'll come home wiser and their eyes more open to the world.
