Sadly, despite my best efforts to raise money on the streets of Vientiane, Laos the day before my birthday, I raised no money in person for my Wigs For Kids fundraiser.
All these things only brought in $200, bringing the total to $2090. Of course, that is AWESOME! That pays for about one wig, which is phenomenal.
But I had higher hopes and expectations. I guess getting people to part with their hard-earned money in a horrible financial crisis is harder than I thought.. which may be a harbinger of things to come as I try to work on making my trip financially sustainable as well
Anyway, my hair seems to grow slower the longer it gets. I’d estimate it’s about 7 inches/18cm long right now. I still have a ways to go
Even if we don’t get up the $12,000 target, let’s try and at least get to $5000 – enough for two free wigs to kids who need them.
