APRIL 25, 2009: Thanks to the success of my spaghetti dinner/Chinese auction, I've turned in my program fee, and I'm about a third of the way to having my flight paid for. I still need around $700 for the flight, so I continue to reach out to friends and family to help me achieve this dream. If you would like to donate to my "Flight Fund," either with money or with airline miles*, please email me at Thank you!

*Note: Unless you want to donate enough miles to cover the entire flight, money would be the easiest option. As far as I know, miles from different airlines cannot be combined.
