In February I asked for support from friends and family to help me raise funds to pay the deposit for an International Relations and Diplomacy Delegation to South Africa as part of the International Scholar Laureate. My goal was $900.
An unbelievable $1000 was pledged to my campaign – thank you to Ally, Kay, Dee, Pauline, Blake, Andrew and Nick … for donating.
I have successfully registered my application and paid for the trip deposit. I could not have done this without the support of these generous people.
I am currently raising funds to help cover the cost of the rest of the trip – broken down into:
- Tuition: USD $3395 /AUD $4750
- Air fare: approx. AUD $1500
I understand that it is not fair to expect to receive financial support from others. That is why I only ask you to consider donating if you are able to financially. I plan to approach organisations in my area to request sponsorships, apply for travel grants and sponsorships and, as a last resort, take out a personal loan to cover the rest of the expenses.
I truly am so grateful to the people who have helped me with this fundraising campaign, or shown me support even when they are unable to contribute financially.
