Hi, my name is Dylan and I'm hoping to get to Vancouver in Canada this summer to work there for 3 months or so with a group of friends. I'm a student in Ireland so, like for most students, money is fairly tight at the minute! Flights are around €700 or so return, which I plan to pay for myself with savings/the part-time job I currently have. However, people travelling to Canada on a working VISA permit are required to have $2500 Canadian (€1800) in their bank account upon arrival as a sort of guarantee that you have the means to live and stay there until you become employed. Unfortunately it is extremely unlikely that I would be able to come up with that much money on top of the money for flights, which is hopefully where the kindness of strangers comes in.. It has always been a huge desire of mine to travel and for a lot of people my age college provides some of the best opportunities to see the world and make new experiences. It is a huge sum of money to ask for I realise, though it would be horrible knowing that I missed out on such a massive opportunity simply due to a lack of funds. Any sort of donation however seemingly small would be a really great help to getting me closer to my goal of getting to Canada this summer!
