I just found out my miles will not cover my airfare. I am not sure why I am dissapointed because I am most definately not surprised. I was just hoping I would be able to cover this part of the project myself. Taking off a month of work does not worry me, it just highlights the fact that the funding part of my volunteer work is reliant upon financial help from others. On the bright side, I will not be deterred. I will reach my goal because I know people will come through for this important work.
Ok ALL, this video reflects exactly why the GRI Zambia Orphanage project is important. Your donation helps me with my expenses (food, shelter, travel, medical, supplies, visa), AND it goes directly towards the continual care for babies like Suni. She deserves a chance to recover from trauma. Don’t we all?

My work dates have been confirmed: 31st October – 26th November, which is the beginning part of rainy season and should prove to be quite challenging both physically and mentally – BUT I DON’T CARE!
The weather is not the reason I am going. I am thrilled to be getting back into project work and look forward the opportunity as it has presented itself.
Unfortunately, my miles won’t work towards my flight, typical, but I will not be deterred! Your donation is now even more needed and won’t be wasted.
It has appeared and I have said YES!…..to Game Rangers International – Zambia Elephant Orphanage Rescue and Release Project – Africa from November 2-26, 2015. (In the next few weeks, I will be posting different videos about the research and tasks I will be performing while working/volunteering!)
I need your help….$5, $20, $50, $500 – It all goes to the project, so I can work!! To learn more and make a donation –

Sometimes, I just need someone to state the obvious, so, I can get out of my own damn way. Your words changed my life and my perspective of self.
Thank you friend.
