Hi, my name is Aliana, I am a 14 year old who is currently a freshman at Catholic High School. I was born in the Philippines and come from a first generation immigrant family. I have also resided in Japan and Guam when I was little due to my dad being military. Both of my parents worked incredibly hard for our family so I could be where I am right now. I am a consistent honor student and a member of the National Junior Honor Society. I am also a regular volunteer at the Ability Center and St. Mary’s Home to help care and entertain children with disability. I am currently applying to volunteer at Norfolk Public School library to help tutor children.
Currently, I am running a candle business with the help of my mom which is a project that I am very confident about. It began as a hobby to keep myself preoccupied during the pandemic and it has grown into a full pledged business after few years of dedication.
The reason why I am writing this letter is to ask for your support. In summer 2025, I will be joining our Educational Tour: Adriatic Odyssey from Italy to Greece to broaden my knowledge in World History.
To help my mom with the expensive cost of the tour, I am selling this Beautiful unscented Prayer candles for $35/set (3pcs in a set) Free Shipping and I can personalize it just like the pictures attached. This is made out of natural soy, my mom and I made the cotton wick from natural 100% cotton sliver farmed locally. I am proud to say that this is our Best Seller with over 500 plus 5-star reviews. 100% of your order will go towards the fund and I will be so grateful for your generosity.
This candle is a beautiful gift all year round to friends and families.
If you would like to order something else, please let my mom know at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can pay directly to the fundraising page that the educational tour created:
