I just joined this group and Im hoping that you might be some help. Next summer (June 2009) I will be going to India with a volunteer group called Cross Cultural Solutions to a rural town in Dharamsala. Even though its a volunteer group the volunteers are required to pay their way there. Im only 17 and I start my job in August, but Ill need other ways to raise money ten just working at minimum wage. The trip in total is going to come to about $6000 (in US money). I just wanted to know if anyone could give me some tips or hints and ideas on fundraising. Your help is so appreciated!!! Thanks!
