K Stan Nicole's Fundraiser:

Kristan's South Africa Trip

Students at Penn State Behrend have been invited to the 30th International Congress of Psychology. This year the conference is being held in Capetown, South Africa! I am among that group of students who were invited to attend. This is a once in a life-time opportunity and a huge expericen for a psychology student. I will also be sending in my research abstract in hopes of being able to present my research at this conference. (I will keep you informed as to whether or not I get to present!)

However, the cost of the trip may keep me from being able to go! The total costs may rise to over $8000. We plan to apply for grants and scholarships but that will definitely not cover the entire costs. Also, we plan to fundraise. I plan to fundraise but sometimes I feel that donations go furthur. Rather than buying a bunch of things you don't really want beacuse you want to help me, and then having me only recieve 20% of the profits from those sales seem hardly worth it. I figured if people really just want to help make a dream of mine come true - they could directly donate a few dollars to me to help out my goal! I appreciate everything everyone does for me. Don't think that a few dollars doesn't make a difference - It goes such a long way!

I am including the website of the conference so you can look and see more about what I may be doing. We plan to spend an entire week at the conference. We also plan to spend a week exploring Africa - and even taking a real Safari!
