As a poor college student, looking at my bank statement is something I avoid at all costs.  Looking into the other day I found I had $641, all of which is going into books for next semester.  But I’m not going to let that discourage me.

Studying for my degree in Energy Engineering, I look at new and alternative ways to fuel the world.  Travelling to the beautiful San Luis, Costa Rica, is going to get my foot into the door with working with local communities.  My plan is to develop a system of solar panels that will help run purify water in small villages.

Two weeks ago, I was accepted into a program that costs only around $1000 for one week of volunteering.  I am extremely excited for this, unfortunately, even though I work two jobs, I lack the funds to do so.

I understand that many of you are like me, young and without much disposable income.  If you can’t donate or you don’t want to, please reblog this.  I need as much help as I can.

If you’re afraid that I might be scamming you, add me on facebook here.

If you’re a lovely, generous individual who wants to donate money, click here.  Thank you so much for reading this.
