Hello! My name is Alysha Bacus. I live in Surrey, British Columbia. I am 16 years old and a grade 11 student. I have a spectacular dream! I have been accepted into the Class Afloat program through West Island College for my grade 12 year. Class Afloat is my dream school where you spend a year on a tall ship traveling around the world while receiving a regular Canadian education.
I just have one obstacle; the tuition and traveling expenses will cost $50,000, and my family, like most family`s cannot afford to make my dreams come true. So this is where I need your help. The cost of the program including travel and other expenses will be approximately $50,000. My family and I have raised $10,000 which leaves $40,000 to be raised. I have an idea so crazy it might just work. 2000 people X $20 = $40,000.
I don`t actually know 2000 people but if you could do me the enormous favor of telling 10 friends about me and they tell 10 friends, it might just work. I also know that not everyone has $20 to give, so even if you could manage to give me $1 it would be an enormous help. And finally, I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy day just to read this.
If I raise more than $50,000 or don't raise enough money to go, then any and all unused amounts will be donated to the Class Afloat Scholarship Fund in order to help other kids have their dreams come true.
