My Goddaughter B... has been selected to go to Japan..YAY.. Twenty students from year 7 and 8 are going to Japan next august. B... has only been out of Tasmania once before and that was for a wedding when she was 10. B... had to submit an application in the form of an essay. Ten students were chosen from her High School and Ten from another High school.
This is a 7 day exchange programme with B.. Staying 2 nights with her host family then 3 nights at a youth camp then back with her host family for the final night.
But... and there is always a but *sigh* B needs to find 1600 dollars for airfares etc. So this is where you come into it..
My Daughter Veronica has a fundraising competition thingy set up on her blog. We are asking people to donate to a pay pal account to help send B to Japan... So could you please click this link to Veronica's blog and just have a look... please :]
There is no pressure to donate at all. None ok... Fundraising ideas are welcome as well. Very very welcome.
B is going fruitpicking in January to earn herself some money.. I had to smile when her mum told me that. Last year B.. spent one day in the orchard picking cherries and swore she would never ever return because cherry picking TOTALLY SUCKS . hehehe
Welcome to the real world honey...Ya gotta work for the money.
Thanks for reading this and a big extra thanks for having a quick look at Veronica's post as well.
