As I sit in the airport, ready to leave on my long anticipated trip to Africa, I have already started with a delay, which will put me close to missing my connecting flight.
I was blessed to see that I was able to get my first two bags for free, whereas normally they would charge $100 a bag to Kenya, as the United attendant helped me check in and get squared away…He was on the phone talking all over the places trying to get the appropriate codes to add the other bags in, when after a good 35 or more minutes he had the damage!
$200 a bag for all additional bags over the first two. Seeing that I had two extra, my credit card just took a punch in the gut for a $400 baggage fee, which puts me back in the $100 per bag category.
Want to help offset the cost of the bags with me? Just look over to the top right and see you can donate, or you can get some great items in exchange with my Kenya Believe This Marketing Event HERE >> http://KenyaBelieveThis.com/BeADonor
I am viewing it with good Karma of course as I will be able to bring some great items over with me to Kenya. I have had some help thus far in donations from wonderful people that led me to filling 4 large duffle bags in a short time span.
Here is a sampling of what has been provided from my community and family:
- about 20 plus lacrosse sticks
- 60 plus t-shirts
- 100 or so track and field uniform tops and/or bottoms
- 2 big vinyl duffle/equipment bags (what I put the goodies in)
- lanyards and keychains
- balls from all different sports
- paper, binders, pens and pencils
- about 10,000 Disney stickers!
- Caribeener clips and safety whistles
- multi-purpose tools
- soccer cleats
- and last but not least CASH!
It is awesome that I am able to bring over about 150 pounds worth of equipment, supplies and goodies for the students and communities we will visit over in Kenya. All this as one person is kind of cool and I wish I could have brought more over. Those couples who are going in our group could bring in the two bags each for “free” and be set!
You can still help out and benefit yourself with out Kenya Believe This Event at http://KenyaBelieveThis.com/BeADonor
All contributions and aid is greatly appreciated by myself, World Teacher Aid and the people of Kenya.
If you participate, please allow a time for response as I will of course be in Kenya and will process all packages upon return.
I will be posting when I can, but there will be limited access to internet providers….but I will be doing a series for sure when the trip is complete. Here is a preview of what we will be doing though.
1) Helping to build a school room in Nakuru community
2) Visiting communities and orphanages
3) Going on a safari with the Masaii Mara tribe!
It will be a jam packed 9 days in Kenya and an experience I will never forget and highly anticipate…if I can only get out of the airport!
As a refresher, I won Russell Brunson’s Dot Com Secrets X Online Marketing contest back in May and am able to participate in this trip as a guest of his.
I would highly suggest checking his course out, if even for the 30 days he is providing for just a $1 donation which goes to help the Make a Wish Foundation and of course, World Teacher Aid. If you are a marketer, this is a must see product with tons of training that has helped me to develop my business.
Stay tuned for more…I will post when I have internet access as much as I can!
PS: If you want to win the trip to Kenya next year, you have to start working in Russell Brunson’s Dot Com Secrets X course now!
