Naomi's Goes To Moldova

On June 1 I will leave my life as I know it and enter into a 27 month commitment serving a community in Moldova.  During this time I will be challenged to learn and become fluent in Romanian, survive with no electricity, work with local government organizations and adapt to having real winters.

Why do I want to leave the comforts of my life and go out into the unknown? It's a simple and naive desire to try and make a difference in the world, even if it's it in the life of just one person.  But in reality we all know that it will be I that walks away from this adventure changed and forever different.  

I hate asking for help or even admitting when I need help. I like to be self sufficient and feel as though I am failing if I cannot be.  However, I am desperately in need of some help financially. My time is running down to gather my supplies and there are medical bills that need to be paid off.

On one hand some of you are not in a position where you can help, on the other hand some of you have the ability to spare $5, $10 or $15. Take a break from your fancy coffee habits, take a break from eating out for lunch everyday and help me try and make a difference in the world.

Any help is greatly appreciated, and knowing that you can help me survive possible below zero conditions while making valuable changes in a community makes my heart feel warm and fuzzy!
