I wish to raise funds for an educational trip to the USA - a Business, Technology and Innovation focused trip to California.

Main image

Hi, my name is Oli. Through my school I have been given the opportunity to go on THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME!

We will be travelling to Silicon Valley, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The purpose of this visit is to learn about Business, Technology and Innovation. I am bursting with excitement about this trip as we will be visiting places that I could only dream of.

I plan to share my amazing experience with all of you via a video blog while I’m away, so you can all feel like you are there with me!

We have been told we may be visiting places like Tesla, SpaceX, Facebook, Google to name a few.

I have some fundraising ideas of my own and I have also got some of my own savings that I can contribute. My family will also be helping me out, but we need just a bit more to get me to the finishing line!!!!

Any amount would be accepted, and I would share my experience with you for your contribution.

This may be the trip of my lifetime. Please help me reach my goal

Thank you so much in advance!

Kindest Regards

Oli ;)
