Posted on October 16, 2015Dear Friends,
Thanks again for all of your donations. La has most of the money now, the remaining funds will be available to him tomorrow. It rounds out to a grand total of $725, minus Paypal/transfer fees. $225 more than our original goal. I am so pleased with the way that all of this worked out.
I was speaking with Alex the other day, and he mentioned that La is also looking for people to assist him with managing his bar in a way that is productive and sustainable. If anyone is traveling to Vang Vieng anytime soon (or if anyone has friends who are traveling in that area), please be sure to reach out to La as he is looking for volunteers. It is important for us to remain supportive to La emotionally in a virtual sense too- if you have a moment, send him a message or give him a call! Money is only half the battle. I spoke to him on the phone via Facebook the other day and it was great.
Again, thanks for your generosity. You are all special people.

Posted on October 7, 2015Dear Friends-
Thank you all so much for your generosity. In less than 1 day, we have raised OVER $500 for La's bar! I am in awe of your kindness and willingness to give. I will be confirming the correct Paypal address to wire La the money by the end of the day today. If you have more to give, please keep on giving, as I'm sure La could use any extra funding. Again, you all are SO INCREDIBLE! Will keep you posted on when exactly La receives your donations.
Sending love from NYC around the world,
