I was moving the donation money into my savings account, and guess what? The total in my China fund once the transfer goes through is $1,005!
This means a few things:
First and probably most important, the deposit for the trip (which is the tuition for the course) is taken care of. I’m fully registered for the trip, and can pay the deposit!
Second, I’m ready to start working toward airfare and visa costs!
Hitting this milestone means a lot to me, and it’s vital to recognize that I couldn’t have done it without the kind people willing to give me extra work, and the generosity of my amazing friends and family. This isn’t something I did, it’s something y’all did.
More important news: the grant from the school to help with the trip has increased from $800 each to $1,000, which means to reach my original funding goal I only have to raise another $500!
If you’re interested in helping out, you can donate here. Well wishes and enthusiasm also accepted!
