Thank you for your interest in helping fundraise for a wonderful opportunity!
This is a personal fundraiser for me, mcclees stephens, to be able to afford a place at the 2012 International Development Design Summit. I was told the competition was very large, and I am thrilled an honored to have been accepted. It is said that the international members chosen were a total of 16 people for the final round from 14 different countries.
The IDDS workshop has gotten quite a bit of press in the last few years (as you can see on their website by going to their website at iddsummit.org) This year it is in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by a local committee and focusing on Urban Dwelling issues in development. I usually apply for grants for travel from the United Government of Grad Students here at the University of Colorado, but due to the nature and timing of my acceptance, all grant application deadlines have just passed.
Therefore, I'm asking for your kind support in helping me get down to the Design Summit this July 2012. One of the main goals of the conference is to foster teams of diverse individuals who can create long-lasting relationships and solve some of our worlds big issues, one step at a time.
I would be incredibly grateful to be given the opportunity to participate and grow international relationships between all countries involved.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and support!
