Hi everyone! My name is Kristina and I would greatly appreciate your donations to fund my volunteer trip to Russia. I live in the US in California, and after finishing up my junior year of high school I would like to accomplish my longtime dream of visiting Lake Baikal, and working to preserve the natural beauty. Lake Baikal is in a preservation partnership with Lake Tahoe here in California. I would love to have the opportunity to volunteer and be a part of such an amazing program. This is a cause so dear to me, and it would be unfortunate for financial reasons to get in the way of my journey to the lake this summer. Any donation, even the smallest one will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
