I just wanted to share with you all an email I received from Mariah, a
13 year old past Australian Junior Ambassador, that I took to Japan.
Mariah, by herself, has set up an appeal to raise money for the victims
of Haiti. She has organised cake stalls at school, a BBQ at Bunnings, a
T-shirt fund-raiser and so far has raised over $1000. I'm so proud of
This is why I put so many hours into this program!
To everyone that has supported me in everything I do, THANK YOU!!
Sorry for the delay, but there has been a lot of coordinating going on
between our last email and now. School says they will be able to back
the BBQ, so you guys no longer have to worry about that. :)
We have already raised $1000 at school, through a cake stall, which was a good start!
I am also setting up an account to put all of the money into, so that
will be open for donations really soon. I will send you the t-shirt
order form soon too (if that's okay?), so if anybody at the AJS or BC
in getting a t-shirt, can you please forward it to them?
I'd also just like to thank you and Janet for the APCC, because it was
truly an amazing opportunity and has inspired me to make a difference
in the world. I also now have pen pals from Russia, Sri Lanka, Hawaii,
Atlanta, Hong Kong, Nepal, Vietnam, Japan and China. It really did change my
life. I am at the moment in the process of application for a year long
exchange with the Rotary Club, which will take place in 2012. None of
this would've happened without the trip to Japan.
Thank you so much for the experience, and keep up the good work! :)
