Ninjutsu Seminar Fund!

$1,100 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 9 months
Laura Faye Stranks  Victoria, BC
Hello!

As most of you know I am very passionate in my quest to learn more in martial arts, and have been very dedicated in the last couple of years.

I'm raising money to go to a seminar in San Francisco which is solely taught by high-ranking female Ninjutsu practitioners, which is a rare and special opportunity that only happens every few years.

The money raised will be used for the seminar fees (which include hotel and training), travel insurance, flight, and transportation when there.

If I obtain extra funds they will go to food (which I'll have to provide myself due to my special dietary needs), and towards further training at home.

I would like to raise this money by August this year, as the event is in September.

This means the world to me because I have wanted for so long to do something that makes me feel strong, confident, and that will allow me in the future to help others defend themselves and gain confidence in knowing they can help themselves and others. It also would be a blessing to be able to meet and learn from other women who are so immersed in this art - to meet others with the same passion is so rewarding.

If possible I would earn this money myself, but as I am working on starting my own businesses and have no "job" currently, I felt I could reach out to whomever may want to help me reach my goals. Learning from such women would give me a new and helpful approach to training that I won't gain elsewhere. I want to be as amazing as possible.

Please donate if you can :) There are rewards!

A plea! Please read.

Reaching high levels in this martial art is one of the biggest goals of my life, and I really believe this event will help me reach those levels.

Right now I am also working hard at building a life and work of my own, or I would easily raise this money myself.

Daily I work at my most potent dreams and this is one of the top 3. If you can find it in your heart to donate even a small amount, it would mean the world to me. This isn't begging, it's a request to help me reach my highest potential, so in turn I can help others reach theirs.

Hope you reach your goal. One of your blogs helped me get the courage to end an unfulfilling long term relationship. Onwards and upwards!
