In February, I'm embarking on a journey to volunteer for others and change the course of my life in the process. I would be grateful to receive help in funding my first volunteer trip to South Africa! I'll be visiting for two weeks (February 2-16) and teaching children to swim, skate, surf, and box as part of an after school program that aids in keeping children off the streets and building their confidence. Funds raised will be helping me to cover:
- 2 weeks of volunteering fees (room and board)
- Program costs and registration fees
- Flights and transportation
- Food/water and other supplies
- Travel insurance and emergency help
As many of you know, I have goals to contribute more to others’ lives, travel the world, and grow as a person. Traveling to South Africa and sharing my passion for activities and sports with children is the perfect opportunity to begin working toward my goals. This journey marks the beginning of a major shift in my life and my focus, and I can't wait for it to start.
I'm very appreciative for any help I can get, and I'm thankful for all the encouragement I have received in making the decision to do this.
