Miles for Alisha
Organized by: Patrick Maguire
WE DID IT!
May 06, 2016
NOTE: this is a SURPRISE, so please do not talk about this with Alisha!
Alisha is about to graduate in May with the UVM Class of 2016. If you have received this link, then you certainly know what an amazing, talented, person she is -- and the incredible impact that she has had on the UVM community in the last 4 years. We would like to celebrate not only her achievements, but also who Alisha is as a person: a great friend, leader, colleague, team member, and giver.
Alisha has given so much to all of us that we would like to give something back to her. She has expressed a sustained interest in travel, something she has not had the time nor funds to do between her many commitments and obligations. (And with student loans on the horizon.) We've done our research, and several major airlines offer gift cards which can be applied to the cost of a ticket. When Alisha wraps up with UVM (& Orientation!) this summer, we want her to have the opportunity to take time for herself - a lesson she has so thoughtfully shared with many of us in her self-care workshops.
We're asking her friends and admiring colleagues to consider chipping in to make this happen for her. Even $10 from each of us goes a long way! We would love to reduce the cost of travel for her, or even cover a the cost of ticket completely. Let's go the "extra mile" for someone we all love!
Should you choose to chip in, please write a note for Alisha on the confirmation page as well. All of your names and notes will be shared with her.
We will keep this page updated as we make progress, and when we're ready to put the funds toward an airline gift card. Once again, THIS IS A SUPRISE and ALISHA HAS NO IDEA.
Ask either of us any questions you have!
