Emptying the Suitcase

Share this post via email


I really dislike travel. There are two main contributing factors:

1. I'm a homebody.
2. I'm not into journeys. I'm an "arrival" kind of guy.

Unpacking my suitcase full of dirty socks and underwear is probably somewhere around position eight on my reasons I dislike travel (after things like "spending money," "logistical stress," and "security hassles").

I have a suitcase, of sorts, which has been waiting to be emptied for several days now. My Passport to India is over, and it's time to empty my donation suitcase.

Donation Suitcase (how'd my sock get in there?)

But I haven't done that yet. The suitcase with the money we've collected is still sitting where we left it, dollar bills and loose change stuffed inside.

Enough procrastination!

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 is the last day to get my gift matched. So, when I get home this evening, I'm making my donation from the money we've raised.

Will you do the same--assuming you've been putting it off like me--and help us reach our goal $167,000?
