EVENT DATE: May 19, 2014
I'm going to be aiming at $1000 for NoStigmas over the next month: starting noon (ET) on May 19th until 11.59pm (ET) on June 23rd. I raised $560 in my first week so please keep donations coming!
I'll be doing 2 challenges:
- challenge 1: learning russian
this will be quite fun and something i have little head start on. i've studied russian a bit before but at the moment the full extent of my russian is that i can tell you my name, a few unmentionable in polite company words, and that i have a dog (i don't!)
i'll aim to learn to speak a new sentence every day - if you want to suggest a phrase for me to learn, please donate and put your phrase in a comment. past phrases have included
"my cats love donuts almost as much as i do," and "my hovercraft is full of eels"
so there really is no need to suggest anything sensible or useful!
- challenge 2: climbing the stairs to my apartment on the way home from work every day
this will be, well, more challenging - i live on the 34th floor so that is a LOT of stairs. you could sponsor me based on how many flights i manage before passing out, or on how many days i don't just give in and get the elevator.
both will do me good though, and hopefully raise some cash. so please get sponsoring! use hashtag #SW4MH
keep watching this space for videos of me at the top of the stairs speaking russian (badly!)
