Send Pay or Wait to Sundance

As many of you may have heard many were denied this year for the Sundance Press Inclusion Initiative Stipend one month before the festival begins. I pre-booked a hotel to ensure that I could find the cheapest lodging for an expensive festival. At this point the hotel is non-refundable and I have no choice but to front the cost. The money I am asking for is to cover hotel expenses for myself and two other freelance journalists who are in the same position and cannot afford to pay due to not hearing back on their stipend status. 

The money I am asking for will cover our hotel expenses of 3,071.42 and my flight 353.60 (flight price as of 12/21). I added an additional 150 to cover the GoFundMe transaction fee as well. This will not cover everything (we still need to get food and transportation to Park City) but this will cover the necessities and any help is appreciated. I apologize for doing this during the holidays which is tight for everyone already I know but we were put in a hard spot and any help is appreciated.
