Julia Rebuilds New Orleans
Organized by: Julia Leone
I've always wanted to work with others and make a difference. Rustic Pathways gives me the chance to do just that. Rustic Pathways is an organization that coordinates all sorts of trips, whether they be about volunteer work or something for an adrenaline junkie, they have it all. One trip that caught my eye is an 8 day, Spring Break Rebuild New Orleans trip. Over the span of 8 days, teens from ages 14 to 18 travel to New Orleans to help rebuild homes affected by Hurricane Katrina. Even though the horrible hurricane was in 2005, the damages are still shown in the city today. Besides building homes and shelters, kids also are able to explore the unique historic city. The tuition for this amazing program is $1995, but this isn't including domestic airfare, application fees, and possible insurance costs. Sadly, I'm unable to cover all of these costs on my own. That's why I'm asking anyone to donate to my fundraiser. Whether is be something as simple as $1 or something as large as $100, all donations mean something to me and the people I'd be able to help in New Orleans.
