Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who has helped me get to $400 on my ChipIn widget! I was waiting to make this post, because usually AFS will send me an email (with info on who has donated), but it has been a while and I haven't gotten one. Regardless, I want to say thank you! With the dollar-for-dollar bonus from AFS during the month of April, this blog raised $800 for my tuition!

I got an email a few days ago from my AFS advisor, with a letter attached from the people at AFS Belgium. My (estimated) departure dates are August 14-17, which is basically what I expected. That's less than 4 months! I still haven't found out anything about my town/ host family/ host school, but I probably won't find out for a few months.

My Pre-Departure Orientation is less than a month away!

New Widget and Other Blogs

I just added a Chip In widget from the AFS website to my blog! You should see it to the right of this post, above the view counter. Basically, it's a way for people to help me out by donating to my tuition cost. Any help would be MUCH appreciated! Also, during the month of April, AFS will be matching every dollar I get through ChipIn, up to $500. That means $5 would turn into $10! How exciting!
If you would like to help me out, even just a little bit, click the orange "Chip In" button, and log into PayPal or enter your credit card information there. You don't have to have/create a PayPal account!

As a sidenote, if you are interested in following other exchange blogs, you can click here to see the ones I am following. Some of them are on exchange right now, and others are leaving next year like me! Most of the people I follow are going somewhere in Europe, but if you go here, there is a list of exchangers going to a bunch of places!
