My name is Allie and my friend Quinn and I are college students (I study at North Dakota State University; she studies at University of Minnesota Duluth) who could really use your help! We have a friend, Alex, who is currently studying at University of Alaska Fairbanks (2,800 miles away!), and we have discussed the possibility of visiting him over our Spring Break in 2015 since the middle of this past Summer. Unfortunately, both Quinn and I are operating on full-time college student income, which I'm sure you know pays in negative amounts. In order to make this dream come true, we need YOUR help. As I'm sure you're aware, flights to Alaska from the main 48 states are not cheap, and as we approach our expected departure date of March 12th, the prices of flights will only go up. This is why I have capped our fundraiser at $3,000 for the both of us; I don't know how much the price of tickets will rise or how closely to our date we will have to purchase them. The sooner we can allocate the necessary funds, the less we'll need to spend! The money that isn't used to pay for the flights will be used to pay for a cheap motel where Quinn and I will stay during our time there (we're currently watching for the best rates on those as well.) In order to get the cheapest tickets, we are looking at round-trip flights departing on Thursday, March 12th, and arriving back home on Saturday, March 21st. Any amount helps!!! Whatever you are able to donate is greatly appreciated!
