5 days ago: a day that changed my path in life. 

The day that my hopes and dreams would be set in motion.

That day I was offered a field guide position for an amazing company that I truly believe in.

This is a company that provides therapeutic behavioral health services to youth experiencing significant emotional and behavioral problems at home, at school, and/or in their communities- but not in a stark white, uncomfortable office where kids rarely feel like trusting or opening up or being challenged in- NOPE, instead myself and my new coworkers will guide them out on 48 day expeditions in the largest temperate rain forest in North America! They will learn things about themselves, learn essential life skills, how function better in various environments, and make better choices. 

Awesome and perfect with no cause for alarm? Well, just a hiccup; I was informed that training starts this coming Tuesday, March 11th in Wrangell, Alaska. I have committed to following through on this dream and am in need of some help from you. As this is a not for profit company and federally funded project it leaves us (the guides) to provide our personal gear and cover our own travel expenses. 

I have less than a week, airfare prices are exorbitant, and the personal gear list for survival in the rainforest is lengthy as well as pricey.

I believe in the healing power of the great outdoors and that I can be an amazing mentor to these youths that still have an opportunity to shape and change their lives for the better. If you believe in me, and have the means to, please donate anything you can- who knows, it could be your $5 that buys the exact part of the wool sock that saves my little toesies from getting frost bite! 

yours in gratitude,

Amy

If you do not go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.
