Homecoming:Lets get Atieno to Kenya

Hey friends, would you help me fundraise to get home (kenya) for 2 weeks this winter? There is a ritual of entombment that is going to take place for my paternal grandfather and grandmother between dec 24-26th and a lot of my relatives will converge at our ancestral land to partake in this ritual and i feel that i really should be there. I think it will be a powerful healing and re-orienting and re-grounding experience for me (esp after such a tumultous year following the pregnancy and death of our twin sons) , and also one that is critical in my work as a history/magic holder/worker. The problem is I don't have the BUDGET for it. I would like to do a combination of things to crowdsource some support, and also offer some services/ exchanges.
So far, for dates between Dec 21 and jan 10, the airfare at a minimum is 1190 but fluctuates to almost 2000 the longer i wait.
I am able to put $300 towards airfare. I have a matching contribution towards it from my fam as well. I would like to raise anywhere between 1000 and 2000 additional funding.
