I am excited to share some fantastic news with you!!

My name is Zana Marie Buford. I am an 8th grader at Munford Middle School. I have a once-in-a lifetime opportunity through, WORLDSTRIDES* DISCOVERNOW!, to attend an amazing educational program in WASHINGTON D.C. Since I am a Type I Diabetic we are not only having to fund my trip, but, my mothers as well.  If we can't raise enough money for both of us, I will not be able to go on this once-in-a lifetime trip. 

There, we will learn about history and our GOVERNMENT first hand. A chance to explore places I’ve only read about in text books and experience our government in action. Our history lessons will come to life as we walk in the footsteps of influential past and present leaders and learn about the events that shaped our nation. Here are some of the awesome activities that are planned for us on ourvisit:

· The Capitol: See the Rotunda and the Senate and House chambers where Congress meets.

· White House: Visit the most famous house in America - home to our president and the executive branch of our government.

· Lincoln Memorial: Pay tribute to our 16th president and reading his famous Gettysburg Address.

· Arlington National Cemetery: See the Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Eternal Flame at JFK’s gravesite, and the Challenger Memorial.

· Smithsonian Museums: Visit the many Smithsonian museums located on the Mall in D.C., including the Air and Space Museum and Museum of Natural History.

This is NOT a school sponsored or funded trip. I am a Type I Diabetic and need 24 hour care. There will not be a school nurse provided to attend with us. With that being said, we not only are relying on contributions from our family and friends to help fund this amazing opportunity for me, we also have to fund the trip for my mother . I have FAITH with the help from our family, friends and community, that this goal can be achieved.

In order to take part in this totally unique adventure, we need to raise $4,200. Please help me by sponsoring a portion of my trip. ANY contribution you could make would bring me that much closer to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
