Please help. I can do this with your support! A Tale of Two Cities 2011

Being selected to be a part of the People to People Student Ambassador Program is an honor. Much like school, there is a lot of preparation needed before I go. For some Student Ambassadors, like me, it means fundraising. The rewards for perseverance are many: an unparalleled educational travel adventure; global and cultural experiences and the chance to grow and learn in unimaginable ways even before my journey begins.

My name is Zachary.I am 12 years old and 1 of 3 students from Santa Fe and 1 of 16 from New Mexico chosen to be recommended for and accepted to participate as an Eisenhower People To People Student Ambassador to England and France this Summer. I am also the only kid going who has a learning difference, but I’m not letting that stop me from going!!

I am excited about visiting England and France for 14 days as a representative of my home city Santa Fe, of my home state New Mexico and as a citizen of the United States. Why I am excited and honored is that this program promotes international understanding while building leadership skills among America’s youth. I will get to help in some small way to create understanding and cooperation one person at a time and hopefully through friendship there will encourage world peace in my lifetime. This educational experience will increase my understanding of the world and give me the opportunity to learn firsthand about new places and cultures and it will help me become the best world citizen I can be.

However, I need your support as a representative of Santa Fe, NM to get me there. I am funding raising my tuition and any support you are willing to contribute would be most appreciated! I plan to share my experience with friends, family, and supporters when I return by presenting my journal and photographs.

The program tuition is $5,739, which includes meals, transportation, accommodations, and educational activities. You can help by:
 Buying a raffle ticket ($5 a ticket) to win an original art piece (shown at Zia Financial, LaTienda at Eldorado). Tickets will be available outside Zia Financial in La Tienda March, April, and May and online). Final drawing May 19 at the end of the Eldorado Studio Tour. Winner will be able to choose which original art piece.
 Visiting my website www.crowdrise,com/Zachary-P2P and contributing through PayPal
 Being a Sponsor for $25,$50, $100 (tax deducible information available upon request or at website)

In case you haven’t heard of People to People, President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded People to People in 1956. He believed that if people from different cultures could come together in peace and friendship, so eventually would nations. Programs like Sister Cities, Project HOPE, and the Student/Sports Ambassador Program were created by People to People, and have become independent programs since then.
Your generous contribution would enable me to share in this wonderful opportunity. Thank you in advance for your gracious consideration and support. .
Sincerely yours,
Zachary LaRocca-Stravalle
