So I wanted to explain a little somethin' to you guys. Ashley and I are raising the money for this trip COMPLETELY on our own. We have applied for scholarships and grants, however it looks as though we will need to get the money in cash or through loans. So honestly, we need your help if this is going to happen at all. So I heard about the Easy Thousand Project and thought I could give it a try with my friends, family, and even strangers reading this blog!
So our fundraising has begun! Here is what our plan is. If everyone who reads this donates just $2, we will only need 500 people to help us out! I know what you're thinking...500 is a huge number. But that's where Facebook comes in! Ashley and I will be posting the link to this blog on our Facebook pages and all we ask is that you do the same! By posting our blog to your wall, we can get as many readers as possible and hopefully, 500 of them will be able to donate only $2. I mean, think about it! I spend $2 a day on dumb things like bottled iced tea and fast food. It's not much money, but that's what it will take to send us on the trip of a lifetime: lots of people supporting us in what we are doing.
So here's the cool part for you guys. If you help us out and give us just those $2, we are going to send you a homemade post card with a photo we took in Greece. We're going to put them together as soon as we get back from our trip. Along with that, you will be able to follow this exact blog and we will update it while we are in Greece! That way, you will see exactly what your money is doing for us.
I can't even describe how much we want to go on this trip. We have never been outside of the United States but it's my dream to see as much of the world as possible. Please help us with this. We love you all!
Remember to post this to your Facebook and just click the donate button on the right to make your $2 donation.
