My whole life i've been interested in Japan and Japanese culture. I have pen pals in Japan, and I would really love to meet them. I found a program called ASSE that offers a Summer Homestay program to Japan for 6 weeks. The program costs $5,600. I would need a flight to Los Angeles from Tampa, because the flight they schedule is from LAX to Tokyo. A flight from TPA to LAX is $315.
My mom has no job because she lost it due to her very mean boss, and personal issues i'd rather not explain. My dad is a handyman, and he just makes enough money to support himself. I'm going to be working and saving as much as I can from now on to try and be able to afford this trip this summer.
The program sends you to Japan and places you in a host family where you experience their culture and daily life. It would be the most remembered summer i'll ever have. I've wanted nothing more than to do this for a very long time. Please, please help me out by donating ANY amount of money. I would be so greatful; you have no idea.
I know it's not the best thing to put your money to, but it would make a 16 year old girl extremely happy. I would be blogging from Japan everyday about my experiences.
Please consider donating any amount. I don't mind how much. Could be 50 cents, or 20 dollars. Everything is appreciated.
Thank you so much. If you want to know more, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
