Wow! I can't believe we really did it! We raised over $10,000 for our trip to Appalachia this summer! We are almost completely prepared, and now that we are funded, we're just that much closer! We could not have done it without the support of each and every one of our donors. Whether you are a friend, family, former UDSAPer, or anyone else, your contribution means the world to us, and we are so blessed to have so many amazing people willing to help us out.

We leave for our trip at the end of May, and we will be jumping right in. We will start off by learning our way around the town. Part of our job will be to pick up kids from their houses to bring them to day camp, so we have to make sure we won't get lost! We will have a few days to begin planning our programs for the summer! 

Again, thank you so much for your incredible help. We will be thinking of our donors all summer, and look out for a thank you note that will be sent to you from Appalachia!

With appreciation,

The UDSAP Flyer Funder Team

Keep up the great work!

Hi Everyone!

First of all, thank you so much for your support and donations! The members of the 2017 UDSAP group could not be more grateful for the donations we have received already. Since the launch of our campaign on March 31st, we have already raised $2,490! With a total of 23 donors right now, we are 25% of the way toward our goal of $10,000! We would like to thank all of our donors for your generous support of our trip to Appalachia this summer! We would especially like to thank the anonymous donor who contributed $1,000 to our campaign! That donation will fully fund one of the scholarships that the UDSAPers will receive next school year!

As we are preparing to leave for our trip to UDSAP in June, we are excited to share that we have all officially decided on what our jobs will be for the summer! We have our two co-directors, treasurer, three day camp leaders, three teen center leaders, two retirement home workers, and two routes runners all selected! We are all so excited to start gearing up for our trip this summer. So many past UDSAPers describe the trip as a life-changing experience, and each and every one of us can’t wait to get started. Unfortunately, first we have to get through finals week!

Thank you again for all of your generous donations and for your support. We appreciate any continued support you have for our project, and we encourage you all to continue sharing our project to your friends and family! With your help, 13 UD students are going to have the summer of their lives!

With appreciation,
