The point is not to pay back kindness, but to pass it on.
As I prepare to be “out of my element” in another country, I am keenly aware of my current discomfort regarding a major element of this process: fundraising.
I have to admit that directly asking people for money feels awkward to me and presses against my natural inclination to be in control.
It’s actually a rather brilliant setup, because it pushes me toward a place of trust that I rarely am forced to experience. To be honest, I don’t like the feeling much. I know that going to Peru will be incredible and full of discomfort and being out of my comfort zone. It would appear that the journey is offering me growth opportunities too.
Currently, I have raised $0 out of $2800 and I am hopeful and do anticipate your kindnesses. I may not be able to pay you back, but your gifts will enable me to pass it on.
