a mat for Michaela

Hey there, guys and  gals! I'm Michaela. I'm 25 and have a disease called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. What this means is that I cannot stand or walk for any extended period of time (three to five minutes is usually the maximum) before I fall or pass out. Part of the treatment is exercise and I've been learning the basics of Brazillian Jujitsu on my own since it allows me to exercise without triggering the orthostatic intolerance. 

It is a bit difficult to practice on rugs and hard floors so I would love to have a mat. It was suggested to me that I make a fundraiser to get interlocking mat tiles that can be stored easily in my limited space. I feel a bit odd asking srangers for money but I just need enough to cover the mat and ordering fees.

Thank you very much. Oss.
