And this is why I do what I do!

Hi Everyone,
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 her!
This is why I put so many hours into this program!
To everyone that has  supported me in everything I do, THANK YOU!!


Hi Erin!
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 was interested
 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! :)
