Listen to this...

"My name is Lindsay Marriott, and I have gotten the chance to go on a once in a lifetime study abroad trip to Thailand this summer to further my education, as I am studying to become a veterinary technician. I was diagnosed 4 years ago with systemic lupus. If you do not know what that is, let me tell you; Lupus is a life threatening disease in which my body attacks itself, including my vital organs. I had tried going to college before, but was too sick to continue. Last year I started fostering animals for Young Williams Animal Center, and that's when I realized that I wanted to spend my days saving animals that got dealt a bad hand and cannot help themselves. Kind of like me. You see, Lupus has no cure and no cause. I will live the rest of my life going through periods of remission and periods of debilitating flare-ups.
You may be wondering why all of that is significant and what it has to do with going on this trip. For the first time in my life I am healthy enough to travel, and I want to take this chance to discover a new culture, help others, and most of all help the animals that otherwise would be left behind. As I go study abroad, I will be assisting in caring for the elephants at the elephant sanctuary in Thailand, and working at the ARK animal shelter there. We will be learning how to bathe, feed, and clean after the elephants as well as take care of the rescued dogs at the shelter.
In order to be able to do this , I am having a fundraiser FEBRUARY 10TH. We will be hosting a FOUR-WHEELER RIDE, along with DOOR PRIZES and FOOD. We are trying to come up with FUNDS for me to be able to go, it will be a struggle being able to do this completely on my own."
