The family and friends of Xavier Legette are uniting to raise money to help him attend his student ambassador trip in the summer of 2011.

I am Xavier Legette and I have been selected to be a Student Ambassador in 2011 on a People 2 People educational travel adventure to England, Ireland, Scotland, and Whales. I am asking all of my friends, and family members to support me by making a donation towards my trip through this fundraiser.
