Hello friends! I am fundraising for my trip to Urbana 2015, a leadership conference at which I am anticipating to find greater clarity of my purpose in the future. Please read my story below and consider supporting me(:
After much contemplation I have decided to register and go to Urbana 2015, a leadership conference that is held in Saint Louis, Missouri every 3 years [this year, from 12/27 to 12/31] for people of God who want to hear more about what it means to be a light in this world.
You see me in those pictures shown, with my friends and fellowship at NYU. After these past few years in college, I have come to realize that my greatest joy lies in serving others and helping them come to know the deep love of God for them. Aligning my plans to attend medical school in the near future and be a physician for the needy, I also want to learn more about how God can use me in that way in this healthcare workplace that I am anticipating to enter. Which is why I have an excitement for Urbana, where there are medical seminars offered where I can learn how to be a joyful leader and servant with direction, compassion, truth, and light in the workplace of the healthcare industry.
Unfortunately the registration fee + transportation + lodging comes out to about $800, which is an enormous fee for a student like me. I have been working jobs ever since freshmen year, but it covers my basic living costs and misc expenses with little to spare. I hope to cover $300 for Urbana with my savings. And this is why I am asking for your help and generosity.
"Why would I want to support her?" you may ask. I want to offer you this opportunity to partner with me as I seek greater understanding and calling for my future at Urbana 2015, for YOU to be a part of my story. I will never forget, 10 years from now, your generosity and love for me and will recall, "yeah! _______ supported me going to Urbana and she/he is one of the reasons I am where am now."
To motivate you if that's not enough, I want to do whatever I can to show you my gratitude and give you a token of my appreciation! Each giving level has a different token(:
Lastly, if you really are not in the best financial situation to help me, I completely understand, since I'm in the same position. Please let me know if you will keep me in prayer as well, so I can send you a letter afterwards!
THANK YOU SO MUCH! Much love, Shirley
