Cost

These costs are estimates. It is possible it could still go up or down slightly, but we have contracts on airlines and the Hawaii tour, so we know the two biggest costs. We also have bus costs and an estimate on shipping.

Remember that you can use money raised through fundraisers to help cover payments. Also, there will be fundraising money that will help reduce overall trip costs but we do not know how much that will be yet.
