HELLO!!! It’s Jacob, I'm excited to tell you I was selected be a student ambassador next year and go to Canada. I am going to visit 8 cities in 12 days. I'm looking for supporters to help me achieve my goal of $3500 - it's alot of money to raise but I'm doing it one dollar at a time.

A little about me first…. I enjoy playing video games on my Xbox, watching TV (I love that), boy scouts, swimming, running, biking anything that deals with thinking and moving.

I have 2 cats, 1 dog and 2 fish. My favorite fruits are grapes ,oranges and green apples. My least favorite fruit are plums, I just don’t like them at all.

I’m in 6th grade my favorite subjects in school are math, science, history and P.E. I am in a after school math and science class, my mom is always taking me to museums to learn about history and I am on a swim team and right now I just started taking classes to learn how to golf.

I can’t wait until next June when I leave to Canada. But I need your help first. I am going on a whale watching trip and I am going to stay with Native Americans (Blackfoot Tribe) they are going to teach me how to build a tepee and I get to sleep in it too!!! I would be going up to the mountains and drink water from snow that fell hundreds maybe thousands years ago. I am going to hang out with folks from the Canadian government, walk on a glacier, zip down a zip line. I will just be a kid having the time of my life while learning.

Things I will learn about include:
Paleontology
Anthropology
Geology and glacier formation
First Nations heritage
The colonial history of Canada
Marine biology
Sustainability and ecology

Some of the awesome activities I will get to do are:
Go on a whale-watching expedition in the San Juan Islands.
Challenge myself at Monkido, an amazing climbing course that soars high above a massive Douglas fir forest.
Sleep in a refurbished coal miner’s cabin from the 1940s.
Be one of the few allowed to howl with wolves at the Northern Lights Wolf Centre.
Take a gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain, and
dine in the Summit Restaurant surrounded by the crests of the Rocky
Mountains.
Soak and relax in the Banff Upper Hot Springs at the base of Sulphur Mountain.
Walk on the Athabasca glacier at the Columbia Icefields.
Visit the bones of Albertosaurus (a cousin of Tyrannosaurus rex) and some of the best fossils in the world.
Indulge in luxury while attending a traditional afternoon royal tea at the world-renowned Fairmont Empress Hotel.
Experience the emerald waters of Peyto Lake
Find out what it takes to be a true champion at Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park.

Now that just a little bit of what I am going to experience.

Since you know a little bit about me, I am going to ask you to help me reach my goal to fund my trip. Now remember every little bit will help me, if you can donate $1.00 I will be excited, if you can donate 5.00 that will terrific, if you can donate more, that would be awesome. You are helping me to start my journey and I really appreciate it.

Thank You,
Jacob
