Help Sarah go to her sister's wedding

posted by bitchphd
In comments to the crumpet post, frequent commenter Sarah in Chicago let on that (1) she's homesick for New Zealand; (2) she hasn't been home in 4 years; (3) her sister's getting married next month; (4) she can't afford a plane ticket.

So I thought. Hm. What if we did a blog fundraiser to see if we can buy Sarah a ticket back to New Zealand for her sister's wedding? This blog gets about 5,000 readers/day. I did some googling and found a round-trip ticket from LA to New Zealand for under $800 (if purchased by Friday), and another round-trip from Chicago to New Zealand for a little over $1300.

I bet we can do it. If you can help Sarah get home for her sister's wedding, even if only with a couple of bucks, please click on that paypal "donation" button over in the near right sidebar. Everything I get I'll forward to Sarah (who I'm actually going to meet this weekend). Sarah says that if, in the end, we can't raise enough to buy her a ticket, she'll donate it to Planned Parenthood. But I'm sure we can do it. What do you guys say?
