THE STORY:

Hola a todos! As you probably know, there was recently a devastating earthquake in Ecuador. As you probably didn't know, I am traveling to Ecuador from Bangkok in 10 days!! When disasters hit, we all want to pitch in, but it can be hard to give the kind of help that's needed from far away. Luckily, being in SE Asia, I'm uniquely positioned to take advantage of the extremely cheap shopping and my baggage allowance! What the affected areas need most now is bedding for the thousands of displaced victims. My plan is to purchase the biggest suitcase I can find, fill it with sheets and blankets, and check the bag to fly with me to Ecuador. If I raise enough money to cover Delta's $200 excess(ive) baggage fee, then I can bring twice as much! Here's an estimated breakdown of the prices (which may vary due to quantity purchased, my bargaining skills, mood of the vendor, etc): 1 big suitcase: $40 10 sets of sheets: $200 12 blankets: $260 Total: $500 Please help me help Ecuador! Any amount will help me fill that suitcase, and you'll be doing something that feels good AND matters to the community. Muchas gracias!!!!
