Countdown

This entry is part 5 of 27 in the series Zimbabwe 2007 Project

Had my latest meeting with the Zimbabwe 2007 Team last night. Things are really progressing well with the planning and preparation. From my end:

  • My passport has been received and placed in a safe place (I actually got it two weeks ago – earlier than expected!) – of course my photo makes me look like a mobster hehe.
  • I’ve started receiving the necessary vaccinations (HepA and B, Typhoid) and have received my Malaria Medication. I still have to get my Tetanus shot and a second dose of HepB. The needles aren’t as bad as I thought they’d be. I don’t like needles but the prick came and went before I had a time to react!
  • Fund-raising planning has been going along great and we’re gearing up for some great events in April/May (see the fundraising page on my church website).
  • My personal support is coming in fairly well. I recently had a $40 donation via the “chipin” widget here on unfoldingneurons.com (Thanks Colleen!) which was a pleasant surprise. I wish I could add-in support I’ve recieved other ways as the tracker isn’t really reflective of what I’ve had donated to me to date. I’ve actually received around $900 (including the $40 through ChipIn) towards my personal support goal.
  • My brother-in-law has produced an awesome promotional DVD that captures what it is that is motivating us to go to Zimbabwe and help the orphans. I’ll be creating a format for the web and I’ll post it here on unfoldingneurons.com, on my church website, and on YouTube hopefully before the beginning of next week.

Like I said, things are progressing well! Hard to believe there’s only 85 more days to go (as of the date of this post) before departing from Pearson International Airport in Toronto!
