Help me send Daniel on a bear hunt

Daniel Rupp knows only one way to live: for God, by serving others. He serves our four children and me - as well as the hundreds of people he works with here in East Asia - by tirelessly giving of his heart and his time. Every other minute of the day he is working on his PhD so that some day, when God releases him from his work in East Asia, he will still be able to provide for his family. 

A very dear friend of Daniel's, Clay Newcomb, has invited Daniel to British Columbia this spring (we will be in the States on furlough at that time) to join him on a professional bear hunt. Clay is one of the leading bear hunting experts in the U.S., and the hunt would more than likely produce a bear at Daniel's hands. It would be a dream come true for my outdoorsman husband who laid down bow and gun ten years ago to go fish for men in East Asia. 

No surprise, Daniel wouldn't even entertain the idea. People in our line of work don't spend money on bear hunts in Canada. Which of course, is true. 

So I secretly sent a message to Clay and said, "Save Daniel a spot. He's got some pretty awesome friends." 

Which leads me to the point: I need to raise $2,500 by mid-April to pay the outfitter, and an additional $500 for Daniel's airfare to and from BC in May. That's a total of $3,000. 

If you are reading this, then you are a man who has touched Daniel Rupp's life in some way. As his wife, I am reaching out to you in hopes that you will give $100 to make this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity a reality for a man who wouldn't dream of spending this kind of money (even if we had it) on himself. That's why we love him, and that's why he should go! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

p.s. PLEASE DON'T SHARE. It's a surprise for Daniel.
