Help me get to Anime Expo 2013, please? ;x;

As a somewhat garden variety poor-as-anything music student, money is pretty tight… and this year it’s meant that I couldn’t afford to go home to CA for summer…
…and which means not being able to Anime Expo : the event I literally look forward to all year long, and for the last few years have been bringing along my violin to share fandom musical goodness at the chibi masquerade, otaku parliamentary debates, and generally wherever I can in the halls.
To buy a plane ticket to LA will be about $600, which I know is just the dreamiest of dreams at this point… but I thought that, with no other possibility I would ask the internets.
Anything will help! (even just +sharing this on your blog)… and if I cannot reach the $600 by the end of 2 weeks (6/30/2013) it will be returned to you.
Thank you so much for reading this!

Every time I’m broke is when everything starts to have sales…
That’s just mean :’(
MEDLIFE Donation Campaign!
Hey Tumblr community!
I’m planning on participating on an international medical brigade to Lima, Peru during New Years. As a poor college student trying to support myself without my parents’ help, I’m having trouble affording the participation fee and flight cost for the MEDLIFE mobile clinic.
I’ve gone on a medical brigade this past summer to Riobamba, Ecuador and it was an amazing, eye-opening and enlightening experience. I worked side by side with local medical professionals to provide healthcare to those who did not have access and also taught basic hygiene to children at local schools.
So please, help me afford this trip to go. Any amount of donation will help. 50% of your donation goes toward my participation fee and the other 50% will go toward patient follow-up care and much needed medical supplies.
And again, thank you so much! If you have any questions about MEDLIFE or my trip to Ecuador, don’t hesitate to message me! :)
