Moving Forward -- with thanks to all!

October 31, 2016

This is the first update after the end of our successful campaign.  Now we can move to the most exciting phase – identifying our student awardees and guiding them through the passport application process, at no cost to them.  What a joy it will be to help!  Seeing them hold their first passports will be exciting and gratifying.

Our sincere thanks goes out to those of you who donated to this campaign.  You understand the value of study abroad and the benefits that students gain from it!  We promise to keep you updated over the next twelve months as we move forward, following our awardees and getting them launched on study abroad!

Your donations will help us send eager students abroad, like the "Psychology in Scotland" group pictured below.

 

Goal met and exceeded!

October 24, 2016

We have exceeded our goal by 2% and are now in the final four days of our campaign!  We could not have done it without the support of our donors.  What a terrific gesture you have made to help more than 20 students study abroad!  We hope you will continue to motivate others by reaching out through social media to family, friends and colleagues. Challenge them to match your gift, or to cover the cost of two photos.  All donations are important, no matter the amount!

It is always heartbreaking to talk with students who want to study abroad but cannot get over that first hurdle -- the cost of a passport.  Encouraging those young people by covering that amount is the first step down a path leading to other parts of the world.  Help us push even harder for passports!  

 

Our first four days!

September 30, 2016

After only four days of our campaign, we have reached 57% of our goal and have raised enough to cover 11 passports!  We can hardly believe what a great start we've had!  Now we're fired up for the remaining 27 days!

Our sincere thanks to all of you who have donated so far.  You can continue to help by reaching out to family, friends and colleagues by email and social media.  Let them know we still need their support.  Share our link and encourage them to participate.  

The three students in this photo studied abroad in Italy.  They've had their experience, so now let's make sure we raise enough next week to get passports for at least three more!
