Updated June 26, 2017:
I have begun a new chapter in Taiwan in January 2017: a 2-year commitment to Envision: Taipei, which is in Aroma Church/Cafe in Taipei City, Taiwan, and I am seriously thinking of long-term missionary service. To find out more, see the About page that you can find at the top.
$ Needed/month: I am 90% fundraised, but because of budget changes, I need about $450/month to make my goal.
Here’s what I am raising money for:
|6 Semesters of Mandarin language study (to complete my two-year time here in Taipei) (**This number may go down if I am accepted for a scholarship in the future); $5,800 total|
|1 Round-trip ticket to visit home for the holidays; approx. $896 total|
|1 One-way ticket home in January of 2019; approx $710 total|
|18 months of the National Health Insurance (which is dirt cheap here); $450 total|
|$612 dollars total of spending money for things like shoes, clothes, and other necessities, as well as fun/rest money|
Here’s how this breaks down:
|Total: $8,468 needed|
|Months remaining in Taiwan (with a departure date of Jan 18, 2019): 18 months|
|Total monthly need: $470/month for 18 months|
|Amazing Aunt and Uncle considered: –$1,000 needed (Thank you Aunt Norma and Uncle Don!!)|
|Final Total Needed: $7,468 needed total; $414/month needed|
What you can do:
10 people at $41/month gives me enough
16 people at $27/month gives me enough
21 people at $20/month gives me enough
41.1 people at $10/month gives me enough 😉
