THE STORY:

No Barriers wrote -

As an AFAR community, we believe in traveling deeper. We understand the power of traveling the world to connect with its people, experience their cultures, and understand their perspectives. What better gift could we give this holiday season than a passport to a Learning AFAR student who otherwise would not be able to travel and explore their place within our world?

This online fundraising challenge is both easy and fun!  We need to provide 150 passports in 2016 and each $135 donation helps cover a one student's passport fee.  All donations – no matter the amount – make a difference and help fund a student’s Learning AFAR experience. Every donation helps us fund more students!

Change A Life In Two Easy Steps:

Step 1:  TAKE THE CHALLENGE- This campaign runs from 8 a.m. November 24 through midnight on December 25th. 

STEP 2: SPREAD THE WORD- Email the link to this fundraising page to everyone you know!

Email is the best method for securing donations. Posting about the fundraiser on your social media pages, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, doesn't drive as many donations as an email but it is a great promotion. REMINDER, the challenge only lasts one month, so it’s important to share with your contacts today so that they know when they can begin making donations and help us win this challenge! 

Send out lots of reminders and be sure to thank every contributor as quickly as possible. Donate what you can!

REMEMBER: 

Your gift is more than a donation. It’s the chance to change someone’s life. The students we serve through Learning AFAR are smart. They work hard. They hope for something more. Yet most have never been outside their own community before. They haven’t seen many dreams come true. And they don’t know yet what it is to imagine a life where they can have purpose and impact.

AFAR Media and No Barriers Youth have partnered for seven years to provide life-changing opportunities for high performing kids who live in under-served communities. Poverty, crime, and fear are normal parts of their life. Our mission is to change that reality and to help these students discover their potential and to approach the next steps in their life with purpose. With your help their lives will be forever changed, as well as those of their families and communities. 

Challenge Starts: November 24, 2016 at 8:00am ET

Challenge Ends: December 25, 2016 at 11:59pm PT

We have one month to change the lives of these young people forever. WILL YOU ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE?
