Our story starts two years ago, my first year of teaching. Emily (the other Spanish teacher) and I decided we wanted to take kids to Costa Rica with EF Tours, an amazing company that does student travel to over 50 countries. Our trip was a success with 15 kids signing up to go.

This coming summer, we decided we wanted to take kids to Peru. We have 23 kids signed up to go, but I am in danger of having two to three kids drop from the trip because they can't afford to go. It is my dream to take my kids to see the world; if I could pay for each one, I would. Each student is responsible for paying $3100 for this 11-day trip, making our group's grand total over $70,000. Many kids have been fundraising, but some of our fundraisers just haven't turned out like we thought and/or haven't been enough.

By donating, you are supporting my kids getting to volunteer in an orphanage. If you have ever volunteered in some of the poorest parts of other countries, you know it can be life-changing. Most of my students have never flown or been outside of Kansas, let alone the country. They will also get the opportunity to tour Machu Picchu and learn about the history of Peru and the Incas.

Please consider donating to this wonderful cause. I promise you, you're not donating to a vacation (heck, most of the time I NEED a vacation after these tours ;)), but you're donating to an absolutely amazing opportunity for kids who would otherwise never leave their home state. I know there are so many things to donate to right now, but even $5 will cover a kid's meal while there. Thanks guys. I love all of you!
