Please Support Cormac To Attend Outward Bound In January 2020!

Project 2019-12-02 20:22:29 +1300

I have started this campaign to support my son Cormac to attend Outward Bound next month (January 2020). The past couple of years have been very tough for Cormac with some big challenges to overcome. He was studying at Hato Pāora College in Feilding two years ago but had to withdraw due to family reasons and since then has struggled to find his way in mainstream schooling. Cormac has recently started to talk positively about the future and the changes he wants to make in 2020, including returning to Hato Pāora for Year 13 to gain NCEA Level 3 and UE. He is excited about the future and I really want to support him to achieve his goals. He missed out on the opportunity to go on Outward Bound last year due to struggles with his mental health but this year he is ready and enthusiastic to go. People often ask me what Cormac would like for Christmas or Birthdays and I never know what to say, but I think this experience (as many people will know) has the potential to be life-changing. Any koha, no matter how small, would be appreciated. We need to reach the target by Tuesday next week (if not no money is charged so there's no risk in pledging!). All funds raised will be paid directly into Cormac's bank account to meet the full cost of Outward Bound (the total fees are $4,435 and the duration is 21 days). To check out the full programme, visit https://www.outwardbound.co.nz/courses/mind-body-soul/ Thank you!

 

Edited to add: In the event that we raise more than the target, the excess funds will go towards meeting the boarding school fees at Hato Pāora. Thank you to all who have already donated, he mihi mutunga kore (unlimited thanks!).
