THE STORY:

Click here to read my blog!

Beginning on September 6th, I am going to uproot and spend a whole year volunteering with the phenomenal Imagine Scholar organization, a tiny nonprofit in South Africa designed BY and FOR motivated students in the severely disadvantaged Nkomazi region. With your support, I will be able to cover the cost of the flight to live my dream, and keep students coming to Imagine Scholar and living THEIR dreams. It is a small price to change lives!

My official title of Student Development Manager underscores the personalized education and mentoring I will be responsible for with each of the 30+ students. We will work on developing academic skills and creativity, read stacks of books, write and perform original poems, and hone their interests into passionate plans to succeed after high school. And, of course, we'll post BEAUTIFUL pictures and stories on my blog, I promise :) For myself, I hope to learn about service, nonprofits, and life for those in the developing world; ground my values in a passionately aligned work environment; and become poised for a fulfilling international career.

But first I have to get there!

My goal is to raise $3,000 in the next 10 days. This would pay for Promise and Zodwa, the students in the video on the left, attending a FULL YEAR at Imagine Scholar at $1,200 each, and part of my $700 flight. For additional perspective:

-$5 buys one book

-$35 feeds an Imagine Scholar and that student's FAMILY for a month

-$100 fully sponsors an Imagine Scholar for a month

-$125 buys a book set for the entire group

You can see that every dollar is stretched to make an impact. Every day, your money makes a difference.


No matter how much you are able, please give until you feel it in your HEART :) I have! Thank you so much for your generosity, and for imagining a brighter future together!
