I recently accepted a volunteer teaching position in China for 5 weeks this summer, unfortunately I don't have all the funds I need to go. I am a Theatre teacher and I pay for all of my school supplies as well as anything needed for my plays out of pocket, so it's hard for me to put money away. I will use any donations made to pay for my flight as well as living expenses while I'm in China, since it's a volunteer program I won't make any money while I'm there. I love teaching, it's the only thing I've ever wanted to do with my life. I would greatly appreciate anything you're willing to donate, because it will allow me to take my teaching skills to children in another country. Not only will these children benefit from my lessons, but I will grow further as an educator by learning from them as well. I leave for my trip at the end of May, but the sooner I have the funds the sooner I can pay off my airfare and rent for the month I'm staying there. Thank you in advanced for taking the time to hear me out, and if you donate thank you for that as well. Teaching means everything to me, and I don't want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity because of something as trivial as money.
