I am a Canadian high school student in French Immersion. In the beginning of March 2014 my school is giving us the chance to live with a family in Bordeaux France for two weeks to practice our French language skills. Staying with a French family will allow us to learn about culture and what it means to be français. I am very excited for this opportunity, but the estimated cost is around $2600, which I cannot afford. I have gotten myself a job at a local grocery store to pay for this trip. Recently I calculated the time I would need to have $2600 by and there is no realistic way that will be able to happen before I need to buy a plane ticket. I hope that if I am able to end up going to France my second language will improve and I will come back to Canada with a better sense of the world we live in. I truly from the bottom of my heart appreciate any and all donations anyone is able to make. The money you generously donate will go straight to buying a plane ticket and the overall cost for the trip. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, I hope you will consider donating.
