Dear Friends and Family,
This August I’m going on a volunteer trip to Nicaragua and Costa Rica with the organization VIDA. VIDA is non-profit humanitarian volunteer association based in Costa Rica and a 501c3 charity based in Minnesota. This organization brings groups of pre-med and pre-dental college students to impoverished areas of Central America to provide medical and dental care. On this trip I will learn firsthand about Central American cultures, participate in home-stays, and work with local licensed health care professionals in mobile clinics. This will be a great way for me to receive hands on experience in order to prepare me for a dental profession.
While this trip sounds perfect, there is one drawback. It is rather expensive, especially for a college student. The trip costs $1,870 not including airfare. The trip does include ground transportation, airport pick up/drop off, lodging, bilingual health professionals, guides, interpreters, supplies/materials for clinics, most meals, tours, and border and immigration fees. I am wondering if you would be willing to make a donation to help me be able to experience this amazing opportunity.
Thank you so much for supporting me in this defining trip, or at the very least thank you for making it to the end of this email! Friends and family such as yourself have shaped my life to this point and given me many tools to take advantage of the opportunities that have come my way.

If you have any questions/concerns or just want to chat please don’t hesitate to email or call.

Thank You!
