Bailee's 8th grade class is going to Washington DC in March 2011 and she needs to raise the funds for the trip. An "A" student from San Antonio, TX, Bailee is very excited and working hard to fund her own trip. Please help her go to DC!

Hi! My name is Bailee and I am 13 and in the 8th grade this year.  My class has been given the opportunity to travel to Washington DC for an educational field trip and I can't wait to go!  The trip costs $1608 and my step-mom agreed to pay the $99 deposit, but I have to raise the rest on my own.  I am also hoping to raise some spending money.  I have started collecting aluminum cans (at approx. 45 cents/lb, I have a long way to go!), offering babysitting, dog walking and dog washing services in my neighborhood, and am raffling off a beautiful quilt that was donated.  Every little bit helps! 
A little more about me:  I am an "A" student living in San Antonio, TX.  I play the bass clarinet in the Honors Band at my middle school and can also play the (regular) clarinet.  This summer I am attending the Texas Tech University Band Camp for the first time.  I'm hoping to play in the marching band when I get to high school!  I love hanging out with my friends and spending time with my family.  My little brother (11) and I are really close and also spend a lot of time together. 
Thanks for helping me reach my goal!  I'll be sure to share lots of pictures and stories with you after we get back from DC!
Love, Bailee


Thank you for reading about Bailee's big plan to go to DC and her  fundraising efforts.  While her dad and I support her goal 100%, we want her to understand the importance of working hard and earning the funds on her own.  If you have any questions or concerns about donating to Bailee's trip to DC, please feel free to contact us.  Quilt raffle tickets are available via email, if you are interested in participating.  Tickets are $2 each or 3/$5.  Photos of the quilt will be uploaded soon!  Email us at
