Raising funds for brianna's trip to JrNYLC
Organized by: Kathi Blanton
I am a 6th grader at Kenton Elelmentary and have been nominated to represent my school and community at Jr Nation Youth Leader Conference in Washington D.C. By attending Jr.NYLC, I will join other motivated students from around the country for an experiential (leadership/career exploration) program. I have enclosed a sample of our itinerary for your review. As you can see, this will be a powerful experience, enabling me to interact with respected professionals in various fields while building relationships with students who will be my future colleagues. Attending this program will enable me to further my interest in the field of leadership and reach my career goals of becoming a leader. I was recently awarded a small scholorship to Jr.NYLC of 500.00. Imagine if you had been given this opportunity for a life-changing experience when you were in school and were unable to participate for lack of funds. That is why I am writing to you today. My participation in the program depends on whether I can raise $3500 in sponsorships. (The program tuition is $2950 and my travel to the program will be about $50.) I am investing every dollar I can of my own money to make sure I don’t miss out on this unique experience and am also taking on extra jobs to raise the funds I need. In addition, through my family, friends and neighbors, I have already raised $499.00. That leaves me with a balance of $ 2,095, and I am hoping that you will consider assisting me with all or some of these costs. We have started an online shopping fundraiser through Envision, the company who is handling the registration and all for the trip. My tuition must be paid no later than 12/31/15 for them to hold a spot for me, it is 369.00 for 5 months thereafter, due on the 1st of every month. Your support for my sponsorship request would be greatly appreciated. I have enclosed background materials on the program to answer your questions and help you make your decision. Please contact Envision at (888) 491-8324 ext 218 for any further information.
