Help Holly go to the Amazon Rainforest to teach conservation, reading and teacher development,

Good afternoon, my name is Holly Makowsky. I am a middle school science teacher, with an additional Specialist Teacher of Reading license, in Lowell, MA. I am looking for ways to approach potential donors for a service opportunity I am trying to fund.

What am I trying to do? My goal is to go to the Amazon Rainforest this upcoming July with the purpose of working with students and teachers, focusing on conservation, reading and teacher development, through the Conapac Library, located in the Amazon Rainforest, 50 miles downstream from the city of Iquitos, Peru. I need to raise $1400, plus airfare. The $1400 covers lodging and food, as well as resources for the students and teachers, through the library. In fact, 75% of the cost of this volunteer opportunity goes to the library. For airfare, it could be additional monetary donations or unused and unneeded frequent flyer miles.

Any help, advice or contacts you may have is appreciated.
