Help Send Me to Israel!

Posted on: September 12, 2011

Today has been a day of ups and ups!  I won’t delay any further and just get to it.  I received an e-mail this afternoon informing me that the scholarship I recently applied to for a trip to Israel was mine!  $2500 in total for a 10 day trip to Israel!  As you know, I lost my job in June so getting such amazing news was wonderful and shocking.  I read the e-mail on my Nook at Barnes and Noble and literally shrieked with delight, startling readers.  The money covers my transportation in Israel, my room, board, and two meals a day.  It does not, however, cover my flight. 

I felt a little bummed when I realized that I had just a week to come up with the funds to fly me to Israel, but thought that I would turn to you, my readers for support.  You will notice a little paypal button on the side bar where you can donate any amount of money to help get me to Israel.  Because of the nature of scholarship money I need to give the organization an answer by Friday.  This date could be extended, but if I cannot go, I want to make sure that they are able to provide someone else with the scholarship in my place.

I’d say no amount is too small, but paypal starts at $5!  The way I see it, if everyone (myself included) who reads my blog daily donated just $5 I’d be there!  If you can donate anything to help me get to Israel I would be grateful.  Even if you cannot donate please forward this via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc. to someone who you think may.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT IS BRAND NEW AND NOT YET VERIFIED.  As soon as it verifies, in 2-3 days (they say) your donations will show up on the site.  Thank you so much for ya’ll who have donated so far.  If you cannot donate, sending this page to friends is all that I ask.  I will be refunding ALL MONEY if I do not make my goal.
