Aloha! Dianne here. If you don’t already know me, I am a happily married, Cali lovin’, Hawaii vibin’, Navy veteran currently pursuing a B.S. Biochemistry degree in UH Manoa. I love to sing, read, and indulge in chocolate. This year, I am privileged to have been chosen to participate in the YMCA Atherton medical mission this coming March 14, 2020. We are headed to the island of Kauai! I have never been to Kauai. This is why I look forward to seeing the beautiful island along with doing some good deeds. In Kauai, we will shadow and learn from rural healthcare providers and help the community in various ways. This experience will also help me make strides towards my dream of having a medical career. So, if you can support me, my dream, and the altruistic YMCA Atherton, please donate. Your donations will be going towards my trip expenses (plane ticket, accommodations, meals, transport, etc.). Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Once I reach my goal, The excess donations will go towards the YMCA Atherton. They will use these to help underprivileged youths and Mother Nature by doing conservation projects! To put some perspective on what your donations can do, please read the following:
$1200 - provides a night of mentoring, conversation, and development for over 50 college students with professionals in their fields of study
$875 - provides one student a week long college experience touring campuses and visualizing their future.
$500 - provides a week of service focused on conservation and the perpetuation of Hawaiian culture
$400 - provides a middle or high school student an opportunity to engulf themselves in civic education
$300 - provides a semester of after-school tutoring for elementary youth, activities for houseless youth of all ages, or after-school mentoring for middle school girls
Thank you for taking time out of your day and perusing my fundraising page. If its not too much a hassle, please share this page with your family and friends. I hope you donate and make a difference to, not only me, but the community. Additionally, If interested, you can ask me how you can get involved as well.
