Fly me to Beijing?

Hi friends!

I've been offered a position teaching English to kids in China.  And I've decided to go for it... starting this October!
The thing is, it's quite pricey to fly oneself to a land that far away, so here I am, asking for your help to get me there. 

I'll be working at a small school in the Changping district of Beijing, living in an apartment the school directors will find for me, and transporting myself around the smoggy city via bicycle (maybe even electric bicycle if I feel like cheating), motorized scooter, subway, rickshaw, taxi, pedicab, on foot, or however else seems to work.

I'll have a ton to learn while I'm over there, and expect to gain some great experience in the teaching environment as well.
I'm excited for the start of this new adventure, and though I will truly miss playing in the mountains of Colorado with all the amazing people I've found here, I'm confident in this next step being a good one, and am grateful for the opportunity. 

If you can help in any way I will bring you some chopsticks when I return.  I may even carve your name into the Great Wall of China as a token of my sincere thanks.  Just kidding. (Unless you really want some chopsticks, then message me.)

Thanks so much!!!
