Thank you for not putting your money in stocks or bonds or gold but in the next generation of American youths. Your donation towards this life-changing trip has made me go from a needy boy into a motivated young man ready to embrace the responsibilities left for me by past generations. Global warming, economic collapse, water shortage, and energy crisis are the problems that lie looming in our world's future. It is only because of programs like these that young people are given the tools to combat and eradicate these problems. By donating to Journeys, you are shaping young men who will in turn shape the world.
