Another Great Opportunity for Stephanie!

Some of you remember (and some of you helped!) Stephanie trying to raise money to go to the People to People Leadership Conference for middle schoolers in April in Washington DC. She went, and she's been invited to go to one next year in Paris and London!

I don't think I need to point out how exciting it is for a kid from East Oakland to be invited to this kind of thing - many of them never leave their neighborhood, much less their country. She's a talented, creative, intelligent girl who really does exhibit leadership skills.

Hi, my name is Stephanie. I'm 12 years old and in the 7th grade. I have been chosen to go to a People to People World Leadership Forum in Paris and London. I went to one last year in Washington DC. It was very fun and educating. I learned a lot about our government and our country's history. I also got to see a lot of interesting statues, monuments, and a lot of historical sites.

For me to participate in this forum, I will need $4200. Your donation is greatly needed and will be sincerely appreciated. It will be put to good use because it's a good learning experience and to travel the world at a young age is good. I would get to see things that some people don't see until they retire or something like that.

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter and giving a donation if possible.

Sincerely,
Stephanie
