Send sparx to New Zealand!

Hey America, I know you're tired of having this sparx guy around all the time, so I'm gonna make you a deal: help me pay for the flight to New Zealand, and I'll get out of your hair for awhile.

The flight is expensive. I've been quoted prices of between $1900 and $2500 for round-trip (yes, I'm going to come back), which is a bit more than I can afford at the moment. So.. if you want to help out, just click the Paypal "Donate" link at the very top of the right side-bar thingy (or at the bottom of this post). I'm aiming for $3000, to cover the cost of the flight and some spending money for during the trip.

I figure it's a good investment. It might even generate an incredible story, especially if I manage to do something ridiculous and get exiled from New Zealand (I'd love to see what sort of Passport stamp they use for THAT).

EDIT: Here's a chart that will be updated as I get closer to my goal. I've "donated" $250 to myself for the time being. I'll add more to the pot myself as I can.

    I had $3 in my PayPal balance. It's now yours. 999 similar such donations and you will be on your way. I endorse this and ask everyone who reads this to please take 2 minutes (yes, that is all the time it took…) to donate to $3 to Sparx via PayPal. And tell your friends.

    If Sparx has done even a fraction for you what he has done for me in humor, insight, and computer geek assistance for my tech-phobic self, you should spare $3 for the guy. He deserves it. Let's make this trip happen, OK?

    He is a self starter and he definitely deserves a trip to NEW ZEALAND. He will likely meet his future wife there. How do I know? Because I went in 2008…

    View my pics (click the link) and you will see why it is imperative that we send Sparx to NZ. It is AWESOME!

    (Plus, then you don't have to get him anything for Christmas…HA HA!)



    p.s. Sparx, make sure you visit Dunedin, on the South Island. Stop in at PlanIt Travel Agency there. Big fans of CACTUS JOE. Also hit the open jams/open mics there. Awesome town. My favorite by far.

    If I'm hitting the open mics, you've gotta go with! I can't play guitar!

    OK, then anyone who wants CACTUS JOE to go so that Sparx can sing at the open mics should donate $6 instead of $3. Good thinking.

    I've added a chart to track the progress. It will update automatically (as I add donations to the spreadsheet).
