Adrian Solano was turned back to Venezuela from France while he was on his way to compete in LAHTI2017 FIS NORDIC WORLD SKI CHAMPIONSHIPS. They didn't believe he is a cross-country skier from Venezuela and laughed at him. He had only 20 euros with him and he is not able to buy another flights to Finland. We are trying to gather the budget for his flights, accomodation and other expenses asap. Thank You!
Aleksi from Finland started this campaign. Our goal was to raise around 4000€. We stopped taking donations at 4485€. You can read the full story of our accomplishment from New York Times. We did it together. I personally paid flights and all costs before receiving any money from anyone. We also gave Adrian 500€ before he flew back to Venezuela. I will update all costs in few days so all of you will know where did the money actually go. Flights were almost 2k alone. Other costs included equipment, food etc. Adrian has also a homepage adriansolano.com
It's been a crazy two weeks and Adrian is so very thankful for everyone of you.
