Hi!  My name is Ruthie Lewis. I'm a sophomore in high school. I've been selected to serve as a Student Ambassador representing the United States in an educational travel program to Europe this summer. Please give today. Thanks! More ...

I'm raising money to participate in an educational travel program to Europe this summer with an organization founded by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1956 to raise global awareness among student scholars in America.

Every year, the program selects students to serve as Student Ambassadors to represent the United States in countries around the world to learn about other cultures.  

This summer I was accepted into the program's European Heritage Program to England, France, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland.  

While we're there, I'll:  

  • Visit some of Europe's most interesting architecture, monuments and museums.  
  • Visit Normandy, the site where hundreds of US troops gave their lives for our freedom in WWII.
  • Hear a presentation from a member of the UK's House of Parliament. 
  • Hike through the Swiss Alps.
  • Live with a German family for two days.  
  • And volunteer in a community service project in Germany's Black Forest.  

The program costs $7,500.  So far I've raised over $2,000 from friends and family.  Won't you please make a small contribution so that this exciting opportunity becomes a reality for me?  

Thank you so much!
