Bus tickets to visit Washington DC for 17 y/o Hayley to learn more about government as she has ambitions to be a lawyer

Posted Feb 16, 2017
Due to both financial constraints and time, Hayley has not had the chance to travel much outside of her area. Her high school senior trip was to visit Washington, DC and unfortunately Hayley could not afford to attend. Hayley visited New York City with Big Brothers Big Sisters a few years ago and loved visiting a new, exciting city. This trip to DC would give Hayley the chance to see another city and to broaden her view of the world. It would also be a wonderful reward for a young female who has worked so hard in her life to stay focused in school, be a positive role model to her younger siblings, and help support her family by working part-time. If granted this wish, Hayley would be ecstatic at this once in a lifetime trip.

Adrienne sent an update on the wish for Hayley.

Dear Rebecca, Hayley and her Big Sister had a fantastic time in DC. They were able to visit the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials; spend hours in a few of the different Smithsonian Museums, and walk the mall viewing the White House and Capitol buildings. They traveled during the Cherry Blossom season so they were also able to see them in bloom. It was a day that they will remember forever. Thank you for making this wish possible.

Please let Hayley know I received her thank you card and pictures. I enjoyed knowing she and her Big Sister had a great time seeing the DC sites. Going during Cherry Blossom season I am sure was an added bonus. I wish her continued success and good luck with her studies.
