So, there were two pieces of news I thought I would share with you all today –
First, we’ve raised $800. This means that we’re about a quarter of the way there! I…can’t find words to thank the people who have donated enough. I feel so very unworthy of this kind of help, and utterly humbled by the willingness of people to help a friend of a friend, a complete stranger.
Second, I’ve found out that I may be able to stay with a host family. I won’t know for certain until the end of the month, but this would reduce my costs dramatically! I wouldn’t have to pay for a hotel, and I might have the ability to cook myself dinner in their kitchen (though having the energy left to cook after a full day of training with Hudson is an iffy proposition).
