Hi, my name is Isaac W. Last year, I met Jolan, a student from France. We got to know each other this past summer as he spent time with my family in the United States. We took him all over the country and showed him many fabulous places, like D.C. and New York city. We grew very close together, like brothers. The goal was to go back and forth every year. I've been working to raise money to help fund the trip and my stay in France. Unfortunately, I cannot afford the entire round trip ticket to France and the money needed to spend a month in France. This is where you come in, I'm fundraising the $2000 it will cost for a round trip ticket in the summer. I will be spending a month with his family, where I will experience French culture and visit many wonderful places in France, like Paris, and his hometown, Macôn.
