Just received my email today cofirming my trip! I leave for the Thailand conservation trip on May 23, 2013 and I am so pumped! One of my closest friends also managed to get on the same trip for community which makes it all the more exciting. 

However as excitement mounts, so do my costs. The trip is costly and I'll have to shell out a solid $5000 on it; I've never spent that much on one thing before. As daunting as it may seem with less than three months to fundraise it all, I feel as though I can do it. I have every intention to perservere and get the money I need because this trip will mean the world to me; I have only ever dreamed of working with elephants in a rehabilitation facility and by going on this trip that lifelong dream will become a reality. This alone is motivation enough therefore I have already begun listing potential sponsors in my hometown (as I'm home for the holidays from university) less than an hour after receiving my confirmation email and intend to pass out all the letters by early next week.
