Dear Friends and Family, I have the opportunity to travel to Spain for 6 weeks this summer to study the Spanish language, but I need help raising the money for my trip. Any amount will help me pay for my plane ticket and travel expenses..... More ...

Dear Mi Familia y Amigos,

            I hope this letter finds you all well and ready for summer!  This summer I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to go to Madrid, Spain.  Because of my fascination with the Spanish language and Spain, my mom’s friend has graciously offered to let her and me stay at their house.  My mom will fly up with me and stay for a little over a week.  After she goes home, I will stay for an additional 5 weeks. 

            Since I began studying Spanish three years ago as a freshman, I instantly fell in love with the language.  Every opportunity I have had to read a book or write in Spanish I have taken advantage of and have become quite familiar with it.  By going to Spain, I hope to become fluent as well as immerse myself in the culture.

            The family I will be staying with in Madrid is planning on sending me, along with two of their daughters who are around my age, to a church camp for two weeks.  There, I hope to get to know the youth of Spain and experience the Catholic faith Spanish style!  Towards the end of my stay, I will be going to their grandparent’s house which is in a rural part of Spain.  My mom and I will also get to go to their cousin’s first Communion Mass.  Of course, I will be touring palaces and markets as well as simply spending time with my host family.

            Although the family will pay for my meals and housing, I do need to pay for my plane ticket as well as any extra expenses.  Some of it I have paid for from my savings, but I need your help for the additional cost.  You may donate as little or as much as you would like.  I would appreciate anything you can give.  

I am so excited for this opportunity!  Not only will I get to improve my Spanish, but I will also get a real taste for the Spanish culture.  Thank you so much in advance for your donations!

One last thing, I’m putting together a list of names and emails of people who would like weekly or biweekly emails about my time in Spain.  I will send some photos in those emails too.  If you would like to be included on this list, please let me know! 

I wish you all the best!
