Washington, D.C. Fundraising

01 Sep

What better way to teach then through travel? You can go to places where historical events took place, learn about famous people in history, and take part in events that help you learn the things you’ve been taught and only heard about. That’s why this spring I hope to make American History come to life for my fifth grader by visiting our nation’s capital. Yep, this upcoming spring we hope to go to Washington, D.C.!

There’s only one small little problem. The money. It costs quite a bit to go on a trip like the one I’m hoping to take him on. When I went on my trip to Washington, D.C. in eighth grade it was 5 days and everything was rush, rush, rush. The places we didn’t have to really rush through we still had barely enough time to visit and see. I’d like to extend the time of our trip a bit longer than that and hopefully get time to see all the important and fun things our capital has to offer, along with, hopefully, taking a side trip to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown.

Maybe it’s insane, but we think we can do it.

Now this isn’t a plea to get you to come and buy something you have no intention of buying or no desire to have. However, if for some reason you were planning on buying any magazines or restaurant.com giftcards or are looking into gifts closer to Christmastime, maybe you could consider visiting our website and taking a look. If anything appeals to you – great! If not, no biggie, maybe you could just pass on the link for us. Any help towards meeting our goal would be great and even just sharing our fundraising link with others who might be interested would be really appreciated.

Here’s our link, so feel free to take a look and/or pass it on to share with others.
