Teaching English in Russia

Hi everyone, I am looking to raise $3000 to start teaching English in Russia. I would be leaving at the end of August. The cost breakdown for the specific amount requested is as follows:

- $600 for the cost of living my first month there during training.
- $1100 for the plane ticket. Plane ticket may cost less, but this is about the median price point I have seen leaving Seatac Airport to Moscow. Once I have my visa, I will have an exact date for when I can fly out.
- $800 for the first month of living after training while waiting for my first pay check at the end of October. I do not need to pay for accomodation with this money. Instead, it will be used to pay for my initial food, setting up internet and cell phone service, and other basics I may need during my first month.
- $500 for some professional attire and warm clothes for the Russian winters.
-For professional attire I need: several pairs of slacks/dress pants, a couple belts, 2 pairs of dress shoes, 2 blazers, several button-down shirts and ties.
-For the Russian winter, I will need a thick warm jacket, nice thick warm hat, thick warm gloves, and (a)scarf(s).

While in Russia, I intend to do a blog series that I need to set up once I get my ticket. One post on the blog will be dedicated to all the people who donated, regardless of amount. If you wish to remain anonymous in the blog post, I will respect your wishes.

As things come together, I will post updates on what I have and what I still need.
