Nate Aragon's Fundraiser:

I Need Your Help for my trip to Thailand!

Alright, so I am going to Thailand in two months to volunteer for The Ahka Outreach Foundation ( and am a little bit short on funds! I was under the impression that volunteering meant that in exchange for my work I would receive room and board. However, this is not the case. A few weeks ago an associate from the Ahka Outreach Foundation told me that I would need money for the following things:
$200 - room and board (this covers electricity, water, internet, and food in the cafeteria... which takes some getting used to as it's rice and some type of vegetable three times a day - that's why I recommend an additional "food budget")
$120 - personal food, dinners out
$80 - toiletries and personal items
$60 - local cell phone bill including the occasional call home
$30 - transportation (gasoline or bus/tuk-tuk fees... I travel on public transport which is very cheap and I also walk many places in town)
$10 - visa stamp runs to the border (about $30 every three months)

So all in all it comes out to around $500.00 a month. While I have saved some of the money required to live in Thailand, I could really use some help from you guys! Even $10.00 would be awesome. I really have nothing I can give to you in exchange for your donations, but I am starting a blog/website that you can follow me on! I will be taking pictures and discussing what life is like in a world completely different from our own.

Thank you for your consideration,

Nathan Ressler-Aragon
