Dear Chess Supporter,

You have recently read the story about
Medina Parilla and Darrian Robinson's pending trip to the 2006 World Youth Championship. This tournament will take place in Batumi, the Republic of Georgia and will mark a historic occasion for these two chess talents.

After having talking with several people involved with their training, it has become apparent that they will need assistance… both in terms of moral support, chess training and help with financial expenses ($5000 each).

Darrian Robinson and Medina Parilla

This plea is written to solicit donations for the two players in an effort to defray the costs of travel, lodging and other incidentals. Regardless of whether your contribution is small or large, you are helping to make history and helping to make dreams come true. Below are links for each method of donation. The Parilla and Robinson families wish to graciously thank you for your support! (donor list)
