Blog: Home-ish

Today marks the first day of vacation. After a long weekend of the Global Health Conference put on by Loma Linda University, followed by a week of meetings and planning and organizing, today is free! Though I’m still doing work, it’s at Starbucks with Casey Neistat playing in the background and an iced coffee to accompany me. After the weekend here in Southern California, I’ll head up to NorCal and sleep for a week straight.

This is the first year I planned to attend this conference. Last time was totally by accident after my ticket was forgotten. And the time before, I was a student and kinda just snuck in. But now as a veteran (3 years counts, yeah?) Adventist Health International volunteer, it is great to see how the progress at each institution around the world has improved and grown throughout the last 5 years.

Being home, fundraising for my vehicle is the priority! I have about $2000 thus far! Thank you! But we haven’t reached our goal yet. What is that goal? Well, $10,000 would be nice, $15,000 great, and $20,000 optimal. Chad is rough on everything from health to electronics to vehicles, therefore quality is important. We want a vehicle that will last and a vehicle that will stand up to the conditions.

Every little bit counts. Its easy to donated! Thought $500 makes a big difference, $5 also makes a difference. We are together!
