Founding Fellow Michael Wilson of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, spread the word about Global Citizen Year to his community on August 6. At an event hosted at his church, Michael spoke about the Global Citizen Year movement and his excitement to be a part of the Founding Fellows class. The 40 guests in attendance — family, friends and church congregation members — donated nearly $1000 and offered words of advice for Michael and the entire Founding Fellows team. The “Notes from Home” Campaign collected wisdom and encouragement for the Fellows as they begin their international experience.
In Michael’s own words, “We had a great turnout and together we made great progress towards my movement building and fundraising goal!” And his parents proudly state that “one thing is certain… Michael hasn’t even left North Carolina yet and he has already learned so much! What an amazing opportunity!”
Congratulations Michael and our deepest gratitude to our friends in Chapel Hill, North Carolina!
