Help a foster youth attend a travel abroad class trip in 2015

We have a special request that we will be sharing during the upcoming months.  If you have had the opportunity to travel or study abroad you know the profound impact it can have on your viewpoint of the world.  It is a great opportunity to explore other cultures, bond with classmates and display leadership qualities…oh and fun too!

Leticia is 17 years old and has been in our foster care program for close to 5 years.  She has been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Greece and Italy on a school trip for her Fine Arts class next spring.  It is amazing that her county has approved this overseas trip, and really a RARE opportunity for a foster youth.

The trip is $3,000 through EFTours and Leticia is working very hard to save her money.  Rather than running track this past spring she opted to work to make her $250 a month payments towards the trip.  Leticia will be a senior in high school and is an A,B student who is working a part time job. Leticia is looking for a second job, because she is also saving to buy a car when she turns 18. YES, she is a very hard working young lady.

Leticia has made very mature decisions to finance this trip and we would like to help her out as much as possible.  Leticia plans on attending college in the fall of 2015 and has dreams of attending THE Ohio State University.

Your donation today, of any amount, will be a huge blessing to Leticia. You can donate online here, simply designate your gift towards Leticia’s Trip on the drop down menu.  Checks can be mailed to: CHOICES, Inc. 1785 Big Hill Rd. Dayton, OH 45439  Questions? Have an idea to help us spread the word?  Contact Ashley Schiffer, Development Director, at aschiffer@choicesfostercare.com or (937) 264-0084 ext. 122.

As of now Leticia has made over $1,000 in payments on her own.  She wrote this letter about the trip:

Let’s make this trip in 2015 a memory Leticia will never forget!
