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.
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.
