Feed Hannah Through App Academy

Dear friends and family,

As you may know, I am attending a 3-month coding bootcamp this summer called App Academy. It is a super intensive program from which I shall emerge an entry-level web developer! It runs from June 2nd through August 22nd. (Yes. It starts on my birthday!)

I am both eager and anxious for this adventure to begin. This is truly an amazing opportunity and I would not have even gotten this far without the love and support from you all, my friends, my family.

That being said, I would like to ask for your support yet again.

As I cannot work another job while attending App Academy and I have put my entire savings towards the deposits for this program, I will have zero dollars in income for the next three months, or longer! I would like to ask in lieu of birthday presents this year, if you would please consider donating to the "Keep Hannah Fed Fund"!

-Just $5-10 gives Hannah a meal
-$7 pays for one round-trip BART ride to class and home
-$25-40 gives Hannah a week of groceries or a month of electricity and gas
-$35 pays for one week of BART rides
-$50+ gives Hannah fluttery joy in her heart and she will love you forever*

*regardless of your donation, Hannah will always love you forever.

If you prefer, I will also happily take cash, checks, hugs, Safeway gift cards, tasty snacks, home-cooked meals, or fresh-baked cookies.

This is a rough breakdown of my expenses:
-$420 for 3 months of BART rides
-$800+ for 3 months of food (but I eat a lot, you know me :|)
-$100~ for 3 months of utilities
-$170 for 3 months of internet

According to the above, I only need $500~ each month!

If you would like to stay updated on my journey, gohkly.tumblr.com will soon be my daily entry log for this summer's program.

I sincerely appreciate all your support. Not only will this relieve my financial distress, it will also help out Frankie, who is taking the brunt of our household expenses. When this is all done, I will make you a website or a drawing.
Thank you!
