I want to thank each and every one of you for your generous support of the Mary Klayder Study Abroad Fund. We have just seven days left to reach our goal...and with your help we can do it! Mary just returned from her 43rd study abroad trip with students and had this to say on Facebook:
Hi all, I am just returning from Costa Rica with 21 students. Some had never left the country before. Most needed support to participate even in this short program. But I have had the most amazing conversations with individual students about the particular epiphanies they experienced. They grow immensely as a group. They grow transformatively in individual ways. Many students at KU don't think they can go abroad. But as we say here in CR, YOU TOUCAN GO! There are only 7 days left in the launch to pledge a tiny sum to expand the hearts and minds and experiences of KU students. I have seen the effect over 43 programs. It is a global society. Help our students join fully! Many thanks. Pura Vida!
Please help us share this message over these last few days of the campaign. We are still in the middle of a matching challenge grant (thanks to a $2,000 pledge from Brad Sweeney)...so your friends and fellow alumni can double their impact by giving now!
You could help us reach our goal of $27,000 by sharing why you donated with your fellow KU alumni. A simple FB post with an "I gave to the Mary Klayder Fund because..." would be awesome!
Every gift gets one KU Honors Student closer to a transformative study abroad experience.
Thanks so very much,
