Fundraising to send James to the moon! (well, NASA space camp, but who knows what the future holds?!)

Main image
  Wellington

Space Camp is coming up in July 2020, and James has been offered the most incredible opportunity of his life so far! 2 weeks in the USA with NASA, learning more about science and engineering than he could anywhere else. His passion is STEM (his school/team took home the STEM cup at the recent Hutt STEM challenge) and since he was little he’s dreamed of being an astronaut! He’ll also learn incredibly valuable life skills.

When we sent him to Wellesley, we wanted him to take advantage of every opportunity that came up, and he has done so much in his term and a half there so far. We just didn’t expect him to come home with quite such a large opportunity!!

We are intending to fundraise our socks off, but we still don’t think we could raise the full amount that’s needed, and certainly not in the timeframe - by October 2019.

So we are asking for your help - can you help us raise half of the cost and send James to the moon? (metaphorically, if not literally just yet!)

Judith Taylor's involvement (page creator)

James is our son, and we want to give him this incredible opportunity to further develop his passion for STEM. He’s a fantastic mathematician and crazy about science, and since he was little he’s talked about being an astronaut.

Use of funds

All monies raised will go towards the cost of Space Camp 07/2020 for James. If we exceed our target, we will either donate this to other kids in his group who also need help getting there, or I will donate the extra to Westpac Chopper.

One of mum’s friends, Juliette, runs a company called Beary Nice (bearynice.co.nz) - they do amazing embroidered bears with your own name on. She’s offered a personalised bear for a raffle! Selling tickets at $5 each so hopefully that will raise a good amount 👍👍 Thanks Aunty Juliette ❤️❤️
