Help needed for ambassador program

Dear Editor,

I am very excited to be among the high schoolers from Alabama to be selected by “People to People” to represent the United States as ambassadors to China this summer.

This is a huge honor for me and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I need your help to make this dream a reality. The trip will cost $5,000. I have managed to raise $1,875 so far, but I am a long way from achieving the full amount I need. I hope you will consider helping me. I am asking that you consider sponsoring me.

“People to People” has made it very easy to make your contributions directly on their website, Small monthly contributions of $10 or $20 are just as appreciated as larger one-time contributions.

If you prefer, you may make your contributions by check. The mailing address is: People to People Ambassador Program, P.O. Box 34902, Seattle, WA, 98124-1902. Please make sure to include my delegation ID number (10090257) when making the contribution so they know to credit my account.

I am also asking that you take every opportunity to advocate for me with all of your friends, family, co-workers and business associates. I need to raise the full amount by the end of May. We leave the Montgomery airport on June 15.

I want to thank you in advance for helping me make this dream come true and investing in me and my future.

Anna Kelley
