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

Main image

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

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.

Our fundraising progress outside of Givealittle  14 June 2019

Hi James here! Thought we’d update you with what else we are doing to boost our fundraising :)

We’ve got sausage sizzles booked at Mitre10 Mega Porirua on 30th June and 20th July (mum’s not looking forward to cutting up the onions!!), mum’s running a couple of lotto fundraisers through FB and she’s planning a few ‘soup days’ at work (these always work well for Chopper fundraising!). I’m offering pet babysitting close to home and have my first booking already!

Thank you for all your really kind donations!
