Help Me Go to Philly DNC 2016

$3,370 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 86 people in 33 months

UPDATE: Since our GoFundMe accounts are being spread via social media accross the county, I have provided a link so people from out of state might learn a bit more about me:

My Speech at the Hawaii Democratic Convention

Please chip in to help fund my trip to the National Convention in Philly. I have been blessed to have been in the middle of the Hawaii campaign for Bernie, witnessing the rising of new, talented progressive activists, nd helping nudge thigns along when I could.

The combined costs of our hotel rooms, transportation costs and airfare have been estimated at $4000 apiece. I have been appointed by the Sanders campaign to serve on the Convention Rules Committee, an essential position and look forward to the challenge.

I would be grateful for any help you might be able to provide. 



Note: In the earliest version of this, I has set a goal of $2500 as the cost of the trip. I have been advised that was way too low and that $4000 is a much more realistic estimate.

Thanks for all your help! In addition to the money raised here, I have had some checks mailed to me which are not reflected in the total shown.

For the last few weeks, I have been asking folks to help other delegates and you folks have come through. But I am flying out on Wednesday and now have to ask for help for myself to cover the gap in my own funds.

Philly is definitely going to be interesting! I am grateful at how many people have pitched in to enable me to be a part of it.

Since our GoFundMe accounts are being spread across the country, I figure I might include this video clip of my speech at the state convention for those who do not know me.

OK, it is official. I just got enough money to pay for my airfare to Philly. The ticket was $1151.01. And I have raised $1157!

Thanks, folks. In addition to the financial help, each contribution also carries with it an emotional boost. Every little sign of affection or solidarity is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all your generous support!

I have been advised by the national campaign that my estimate of the costs of attending the convention are too low. Other Hawaii Bernie delegate GoFundMe campaigns trusted my $2500 estimate and now need to raise the goal to $4000!

So I am sheepishly doing the same. Ulp.
