Help us send Katie to Argentina to study Architecture, please? She needs this in her portfolio for becoming an architect.

Katie has been accepted to a group going to Argentina to study in June for Acting on Sustainability: Creating Sustainable Communities in the Interstitial Spaces of Bueno Aires. That’s pretty soon, and she needs to fund her trip. She’ll be there for three months, if she can get the money together; if she can’t get the money together, she cannot go.

Please help her with this opportunity! It’s really important to her career, and important to do now, before she goes to graduate school. She’s applying to Ivy League schools, but that’s another challenge for later.

The Details of the Deal

The cost for participating in the study is $2500, her airfare (round trip) is $1500 and she’ll need another $2000 for living expenses for three months (rent, food, etc.) Her reservations should be made soon, so won’t you please help her out?

We are also having a penny drive to raise money - we’re asking people for their penny collections. Lots of people just toss their pennies into a jar or something, and we’re asking them for the jar-ful of pennies. Help us if you can!

We Need Your Help Another Way, Too

If you can’t afford to donate, we can still use your help. We also need volunteers to help with the penny drive. $6000 is a lot of pennies - 600,000 to be exact! Please ask your family members and friends for their pennies for Katie, and don’t forget to ask them to donate to this page! If everyone gives a few bucks each, it won’t be so hard to come up with.

Thanks for everything, and please donate soon! We don’t have much time!

**Note: Some people prefer to donate offline, and that’s just fine. This company will take 7% of what we make, so offline donations can be made directly to Katie, or send them to her mother’s PayPal account at
