"It was so different from anything I had ever known."

I will never forget the moment I stepped off the plane and into Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca. Jet lag seemed to be dragging my body into the floor beneath me and I struggled to read the signs around me.

This was my first trip overseas, the first time I would ever travel on my own. All I had ever known were big American cities like Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, DC. I think that was part of what drew me to Morocco – it was so different from anything I had ever known.

It doesn't take a certain kind of person to be able to ask for donations. Asking friends, family and acquaintances for donations can be a humbling experience. And by offering a contribution to your program fee, they become a part of the effort. It’s about more than simply making a donation but rather working towards a larger cause. Don't be nervous to ask - all they have to say is "no" if they'd rather not donate. Yet, you'll find that people really care.
