Donations have been rolling in this week, so a big thank you to everyone who has already donated.  We have over €1400 now and we're starting to feel very optimistic about reaching our €30,000 target! Also, a big thank you to all those who are doing what they can to spend the word, of our cycle and chosen charity, either via word of mouth or by sharing our event and blog via Facebook etc.

We've had a couple of great things happen this week.  The first was a promise of a very generous donation from The Irish Association of Korea.  They are a non-profit voluntary organisation that promotes Irish culture in Korea and we contacted them initially just to get some help with organising our fundraiser.  As well as pledging to donate money they are also helping us on a couple of other fronts which should result in some more media coverage in the coming weeks and months.  All very exciting!  Once we have some more concrete details we'll be sure to get it all up here but keep your eyes and ears peeled for any word of us at home in the papers or on the radio, you just never know!  We could be famous yet!

For the moment though, its all systems go on the last bit of organising here.  Still some last little things to buy, routes to ponder, the apartment to pack up, vaccinations to get, money to exchange, visas to get....and a head to shave!
