I'm new here so...
I've traveled twice with P2P once between 7th-8th grade and another between 8th-9th grade. The first time I went to Australia, the next time to Europe (France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy).
Today, I received a letter in the mail about a new trip that was offered to "honored alumni" only. It's called Imperial Capitals of Europe. For me, the trip departure date is July 3-5 and the application has to be turned in on Feb 15. The trip sounds really exciting however, my last two trips were paid mostly by my parents. The first one entirely the second one I raised about 1,000 dollars by mailing letters to businesses (this was the one way they suggested at meetings)
I don't have a job but I am going to be getting one, I turned 16 not so long ago and was waiting for basketball/cheerleading season to finish which the season ends in 3 weeks but State for the girls doesn't end until March 10th and March 17th for the boys. My school won state for girls and was 5th for boys last year. So until then I can't dedicate all of my time to it. I looked up state law and found that I could 26 weeks for schools weeks and 50 non-school weeks. I figured I could raise about 5,000 or so dollars by working. I'm still 700 plus spending money and extra things short. So anything you have tried to funding would be really helpful.
If you funded for your trip how did you do so; I'm going to try to raise about 1,500?
Have you received any news about this Alumni Trip?
