Starting this fall, I will be traveling back to Nepal to start a long-term volunteer trip. In addition to reconnecting with Support the Children Nepal, an orphanage I spent 5 weeks with in 2011, I hope to travel through Asia and South America, volunteering most of my time to people and communities in need of help.
100% of the funds raised through this site will be used to purchase basic necessities for those in need: clothing, hygiene products, food, medicine, etc. All personal expenses will be paid for out of my own pocket.
As I have with past trips, I will be blogging my travels at www.septastic.com.
While my goal is to get 750 people to donate just $10 each, I'll accept any donation in any amount you are willing to make. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated! More times than not, a little goes an awfully long way in developing countries.
in five months time, he has raised $3551 for this adventure. how frickin' cool is that?! i've donated and knew I had to do something else. and here is my something else:
our city has a marathon it is hosting and mile 22/23 runs right down my street, past my home. on aug 24th, it was my intention to host a "spectator party" and invite friends & family over to join the fun & festiveness that is spectating a marathon. (think lots of cow bell, clapping, vocal encouragement) seth also is a fantastic athlete and i have had the pleasure of spectating ironman wi for the last two years as he participates. so, what did my thoughts turn to as i brought together spectating, seth's IM journey, and his volunteering??? Um, let's host a breakfast and have people pay to spectate my my home. i can do this small thing to bring some extra $ into his fund to make a difference in the lives of someone who lives a very different life than i do. i don't have a set goal, but i hope to raise at least $100 for his adventure and know that he will put that money to good use. i trust his judgement 100% and i can feel great about helping him (and others) in a small manner.
rock on, my friend.
