How a week can change alot of things…
Well the last week has been a hurricane of emotions and thoughts as the take off date hastily approaches, Its funny this was born in January and I think for the first time since giving birth to this idea it is actually feeling real.
The last week has brought good news, bad news and well news – the first news was this article published in the Timaru Herald here and to have a snippet of my story published like that was incredibly liberating, it was like a giant monkey of my back!. With this article circulating I was blown away with everyones kind words and support and encouragement.
A Timaru fundraising group called silver linings who auction off 2nd hand goods and donate the $$ to charities pledged $200.00 to Mervs fuel fund!! I’d recommend all locals to join this group as what they do there is something very special.
On Thursday night it was off to the Buck Shelford night that we had arranged, Buck spoke to the Timaru audience for about an hour about his battles with cancer and his weight issues with John McBeth as guest MC. John and I spoke about TwitOnTour and hope to have some good news coming this week! It was a great informative evening.
I had an idea a month or so ago about taking a flag for everyone to sign their twitter handles on it and fly it when I hit Auckland…. Well Thanks to Adams Flags they have kindly donated the Flag!! Its little things like that, that will make this journey incredibly unique.
I’m not going lie this last 10days has been incredibly challenging almost to the point I was going to pull the pin on it all, but this is bigger than me, this NEEDS to be done and to all that have suffered from the things that ill raise $$ to help fight, I promise you that I’ll leave everything on the road to bring home the big money and to share my story to as many as possible in hope to see some kind of change.
Still heaps to sort so I hope my next post is full of exciting news!
oh and here’s a video
