4T (Ted's Teaching Trip to Taiwan)

$1,975 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 35 people in 64 months
Hey everyone! I have an opportunity to go teach in a Summer Program in an underprivileged rural school in CheCheng township, Taiwan. A co-teacher of mine graduated from that middle school before emigrating to the States and joining Teach for America. She tells me that for many in her hometown, middle school will be the highest level of education they receive. I really feel this will improve my practice as a teacher as well as to see how universal education really is. The funds I'm trying to raise are for school supplies, airfare, and accommodations.

Some of the students I may get to teach!

Hey everyone! So, the time is almost near! There's about a month left until the trip and I'm about 1/2 there to meeting my goal! Thanks so much to all of you who've donated already! I just need a little bit more to make it! Please share this to everyone and anyone who'd be interested in supporting me!

Hey folks! So, finally down the home stretch of my (still tentatively titled) Habanero challenge. It's only 4 days until the end of May and there's still 370 left to raise before you see me eat some peppers (or something else I have in mind) I'm super confident that the good people who know me will be willing to dig down and donate! Here's to me eating Habaneros!

Hello friends! So, it's 2 weeks until the end of May and that means it's also the end of the (tentatively titled) habanero challange! That's right! If $1000 can be raised by the end of May I will eat 2 habaneros (or another similarly embarrassing act) and post the results to Youtube, Facebook, e-mail, whatever! Not only will you see my face get beet red and then writhe in agony you'll also feel happy in knowing that you'll be doing some good as well!

Sorry, Brian Samples you've got to pledge first before you make any demands!

Hello, Facebook friends! Thank you so much to those that have given already. I really do appreciate what you've given up to fund my teaching trip to Taiwan. So far, thanks to you I've raised almost $500!

I've decided that a little encouragement is needed to encourage people to give a little. If I can reach $1000 by the end of May I'll 'crowd source' some suggestions as to what I should do to show gratitude. I'll encourage almost anything that isn't illegal or (mostly) harmful...I'm thinking maybe eat a habanero or two? Whatever the case, I'm open to suggestions as to what I could do in and around New York that's potentially embarassing!
