Pledge “airfarespledge”

"I will donate my time to assist and volunteer to help CERMT in Massage Therapy. but only if 20 people will help two determined Massage Therapists pay for Airfares to get to New Oreleans."

— Fiona and Cara, Massage Therapists

Deadline to sign up by: 20th November 2005
23 people signed up (3 over target)

More details
We both have certificates in Massage Therapy and have the desire to travel to New Orleans to give a healing hand to those in need. We feel that, by donating our time and help, would be such a fulfilling experience.

Seeing the information on the news is devastating and because we both live in Australia, we feel helpless. We are quite determined to make this trip happen.

Although, we are overseas and have families, our availability is flexible, we are willing to travel as soon as we raise awareness for airfares to get to New Orleans.

Thank you for your time.

  • Fiona and Cara,

    If you can wait until after November 30, I will give you 290,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles, to be used for you both to fly from Australia to the US and return; in First Class, so you might be in shape to massage right off the plane!

    If you want, I can help you with the reservations. If not, just make the reservations and let me know the record locator(s).

    Good luck and thanks.
