Sakai Studying Abroad!
Organized by: Sakai Jones
Hi, my name is Sakai Jones and I'm on track to graduate high school early. I'm from Oakland, California, which is rough to say the least. I live with my mother, two brothers, and help to take care my entirely dependent grandmother while my mom works hellish hours to support us. We get by, mostly, and I try to contribute wherever I can. This fall I'll be taking some final courses that will allow me to finish high school by June, but I'm required to take a summer study abroad program to fulfill my last few requirements. I don't have much free time outside of classes or homelife but I use what little time I have working to help my mom. I've started putting aside the bare minimum but at this rate there's no way I'll be able to reach the fees to pay for the trip. I need to reach a total of $2500 including both what I save and what I get from here. I've had to sacrifice a lot to get where I am, and I don't know what I'll do if all of it turns out to be for nothing. I'm asking for anything you can donate. Even if it's the smallest possible amount. Please, I'm trying my hardest, I just need some help. Thank you for donating.
