To the friends and family of Katie Parish Hill,
Please do not share this on facebook or with Katie, so it can be a surprise.
As many of you know, Katie has not been feeling well for the past several years. In her research she found a retreat in Costa Rica that offers hope for healing. It's called "Farm of Life." Here's the link to their website (http://www.fincadevida.com
), so you can check it out.
Katie has been in contact with these people for about the last year and a half and is constantly reminding me that she needs to go.
The retreat is on a farm in the mountains, which provides all the nutritous foods, clean air, sun and physical activities she needs to help her get on track. This would be a very positive thing for her in her life.
She'll need to stay for about a month. Being that the retreat is literally on a farm, the food, with few exeptions, is provided free of charge. I'm trying to raise $2,700, which will cover the cost of her lodging, some of the classes that she wants to participate in and the fees associated with using this platform to raise money. I will be covering the cost of airfare and other traveling expenses for her. If we raise, more than the goal, the extra money will go towards airfare.
Hopefully, we can raise the funds within the next few weeks. I need to book her reservation at least 4 weeks in advance and hope to send her in June.
People are always asking me how they can help Katie and until now, I've never known how to answer that question. This is the answer and it's something I can't do alone right now. Together, we can make this happen for her.
Thank you for your love and consideration. Any amount helps. We love you all whether or not you can help.
