Our annual "Birthday Month Fundraiser" continues for the month of April! Help us keep the momentum of international youth diplomacy going with your support.
The pandemic has slowed us down, but it hasn’t stopped us – we have still reached out to last year’s applicants to invite them to participate in a virtual photo exchange being coordinated by the Santa Cruz-Sestri Levante subcommittee. We have invited all scholarship applicants from last year to participate. One photograph of their choice from the virtual exchange will be entered in the 2021 Young Artists and Authors Showcase organized by Sister Cities International and should follow this year’ theme: United in Hope.
Additionally, the local Dante Alighieri Society is working in cooperation with the Sestri Levante Subcommittee of the Santa Cruz Sister Cities Committee to offer Italian lessons to candidates in the fall. And we are in regular communication with Sestri Levante to begin planning for an exchange for the summer of 2022.
Your continued support helps secure those opportunities!
BIG THANKS to those who have donated so far this year!
Donations in any amount are very much appreciated – $5, $10, $25 all add up! Like last year, we’ll be offering a special incentive. In honor of Gralen’s birthday, from now through April 30, for donations of $100 or more we will send you a bottle of wine from Wilson Family Vineyards in appreciation of your generous support!
