Tips from a superstar fundraiser

I LOVE traveling the world and I want to help you do the same!

Hi! I’m Aidan Carr, a 15 year old from Pennsylvania and a Freshman in High School. Next summer, I will travel on my fifth educational travel program, and so far I have been to 8 countries.

  • I traveled internationally for the first time in 2013, at the end of my 5th grade year, to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
  • The next year, I went to Australia.
  • Then, I went to Italy, Sicily and Greece.
  • And last year, I went to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. (That was pretty amazing!)
  • This year, I can hardly believe it – I’m going to China and Hong Kong for 19 days!

I plan to continue to travel with Quo every summer through my senior year.

But here’s the thing: I fundraised 100% of the money for these trips. That’s right — all of it! And I’m here to tell you, YOU CAN TOO. With personal dedication, the support of your friends and family, and a great plan it’s entirely within your reach to pay for part or all of your travel costs.

Aidan’s Advice

So, this is my Funding Student Travel page dedicated to advice, guidance and support for anyone interested in replicating my success. I’ll be posting videos here in the coming weeks to help you learn what you can do to pay for your own student travel adventures.

I know what travel has done for me. By helping other students and families learn how to raise money for their own travel, I believe the changes in their lives, thoughts and actions will be worth a million “smiles” — and those positive outcomes which will carry benefits that last for a lifetime.

Want to know a little more about me?

I live with my mom, Melissa, my dad, Brian, my brother Blase (17), and my brother Frankie (8). I enjoy playing football & basketball, track and field and I’m active in Drama Club. I am also a lector at my local church. I just completed a term as the President of my Middle School, and here comes High School, so who knows what’s possible? I really do love theater, and I’ve starred in many shows, starting way back in 2nd grade. Most recently, I had the the lead role in Guys and Dolls.
