Lamia's Mother's Funeral

My dear friend Lamia Varda Kosovic's mother passed away this morning. I had the honor of meeting this lovely woman in Sarajevo last summer. She adored Lamia and Hana, her only grandchild. 

Lamia needs to get to Sarajevo as soon as possible, to be with her brother, help with funeral arrangements, and say goodbye to her beloved mother. Last minute travel to Bosnia is not cheap, and they have two tickets to purchase. I am hoping to raise $2,000, which will cover the cost of two tickets, and leave an extra $200 or so for incidentals. 

This is a time-sensitive issue, and I am hopeful that we can raise this money by tomorrow. Thank you for anything you can do to help Lamia and Hana get to Sarajevo. I cannot imagine having to go through something like this so far from home. 

And if you live locally and see Lamia out, give her a hug...she could use it right now.
