To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Madison Rivera and I am writing to you on behalf of World Strides International Discovery Program. This is an organization that is providing myself, my fellow classmates, and instructors from the California State University, Chico Nursing Program an amazing educational opportunity during the summer of 2014. I feel honored to be a part of this wonderful and dedicated team and to participate in the life changing work of the organization.

Our fundraising efforts go towards our goal of supporting the children of orphanages and other needy populations in an attempt to meet basic shelter, nutritional, educational, and emotional needs for promoting their health and advancing their education. As a team of 20, we will be traveling throughout India to volunteer in public and private medical facilities, host a makeshift wellness camp for families who may not otherwise have healthcare, volunteer at an orphanage, and learn about the natural and traditional medicine of India. We will spend a total of 12 days together in Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur educating communities on topics such as sanitation and hygiene, women’s health promotion, safe labor practices, vaccinations, and recognition and prevention of communicable illnesses.

I am in my final year of the nursing program at Chico State, working towards my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. This trip would not only provide services to the people in India, but also enhance my continuing education after graduation. I am excited about this opportunity because it allows me the chance to promote health, learn about the culture of India, and provide temporary medical assistance for adults and children. This trip also allows me the opportunity to use what I have learned in the nursing program, and will continue to use throughout my professional nursing career.

In order to take part in this learning opportunity, I have committed to raising $5,000. Your donation is also tax deductible! The World Strides International LLC Tax ID is: 54-1956303. Any donation, no matter the amount, would not only show your support towards me, but also to the promotion of worldwide health. Your time and contribution are greatly appreciated.

Please call or email me at if you have any questions or want to hear more about this great learning opportunity.
