(Authentic) POWERFUL PEOPLE "Truly" Serve Others WELL!
My name is Milissa and I am asking you to help me raise funds to send my wonderful, intelligent, compassionate and amazing son Reuben, a Hodgkin's Lymphoma Lymphocyte Predominate Stage 4 Cancer survivor go to Japan this summer with the organization People to People.
This campaign is VERY important to me and him for many reasons. My son will be celebrating his 10+ year anniversary year of being a survivor. It will lend itself to one of my son's passions Service in Action. He wants to go to Japan In particular because he wants to help with the continued 2011 tsunami's efforts. This devastation hit him particularly hard because it struck on his birthday.
My son is very civic minded and is also extremely interested in this country and its people. He was the President of the Japanese club and an active member and is currently in the Anime club and marching band. Also, Students in motion, brony club and the EF tours club. He belongs to an organization for many years called CFJ where he campaigns for social, economic and educational justice and equality for all. He also works with the BHC Building Healthy Communities helping make sure the schools are held responsible for the food they serve the kids by requesting ingredients be listed lobbying for Vegan and Vegetarian options in the schools. Also volunteering hours to reading at the elementary school and being a teacher’s assistant.
This trip will give him 20 service-learning hours and one elective high school semester credit. And a global perspective that I cannot put into words. My son is a high honors student who wants to go into International economic and business as his college major. And he will be more of a global citizen.
This is something he deserves and I'll be honest I cannot supply to him on my own so I'm asking for your assistance.
The Funds you are helping us raise will go towards the following:
*Any additional money left over will be donated

This will make such a HUGE impact on my sons life. This will continue him on this amazing life path and journey he is on. He has gone thru hell and back again and he came thru it stronger, more resilient, thoughtful and with such grace as I have never seen. Please help me fulfill this one big dream he has.
I will share weekly updates on progress we are making
