Healing with Hoop Dance

$3,510 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 18 months
I get to rewrite this story because I am now only 1000$ away from my goal. Many people have donated outside of Gofundme.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. 

My trip: I'm going to Nepal with my dad to teach hoop dance to children as a form of therapy. My dad is coming to repair damaged buildings from the floods, earthquakes, etc. We leave on thanksgiving day, and will come back December 31st. We're staying in one of the student dorms (I'm working in a school located in Khandbari, Nepal.) I will be documenting my trip and will come back with a video to share my adventure. Your money will go directly to helping me pay for the trip!

I won the Women Who Light the Community Award, you can see my video below!

17 DAYS UNTIL NEPAL! As it gets closer to my trip, and everything is falling into place, the more it all becomes real to me. I am fully funded, but I'm asking for all of my holiday presents to be traveling money for the trip. Please DON'T donate through GoFundMe, because I won't get the money in time- (You can contact me for my address.) Thank you so much for your support!
If you want to keep up with my travels, I have started a vlog channel. Here's my first video:

Can you believe it? 3 months ago, I was trying to figure out how I could raise 8,000$. Now, my trip is 3.5 months away, and I only need 1500$ to be fully funded! THANK YOU SO MUCH! My dream is becoming more and more possible by the moment because of you. I thank you from the deepest part of my heart. Much love <3 <3
