Raising for Raven

Funding for: Travel tuition for Student Ambassador trip to Europe.

about my venture

Hello! My name is Raven Arrington and I have been given the amazing chance to go on a once in a life time trip to England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales through the People to People Student Ambassador Program (www.peopletopeople.com).

I believe that there is such a lack of cultural understanding, respect, and acceptance in the world today. But by going to different countries and opening our minds to how they live, we could possibly break the misunderstandings.

I'll also be working to help people in a community in each country that I visit. For example, I'll be visiting a family-owned farm in Scotland, where we will be sheep-sheering, experiencing the life of a sheepdog handler, bottle-feeding orphan lambs and watching collie pups being trained to herd sheep.

As a People to People Student Ambassador, I hope to find the similarities and differences that can bring the people of the world together, and to further prepare me for college and my future. And also it would be great to meet new people from other places in the world, so that it's not just limited to the people that live in the same place as me. 

Unfortunately, this amazing trip costs a lot of money. I'm doing my best to help my parents pay for the trip. I would be very grateful if you helped me reach my goal by donating money. Even if you can't donate money, please spread the word about my trip to others who may be able to help.

Thank you,
