Long Walker seeks sponsor
Clara Curtiss, our friend from Long Walk 2, would like to join Long Walk 4 as a walker and runner, with her three children. She is seeking a sponsor ($220 a month for existing monthly expenses) so she can join the walk all the way to California.
I'll tell a little story of Clara's unselfishness. When Clara had just joined Long Walk 2, one of the Japanese youth walkers, who had come all the way from California with us, had to leave the US immediately to renew his visa. The cheapest ticket I could find for him was to Ecuador, but he had no US dollars to buy the ticket. Instantly without knowing him, Clara agreed to give him all the money she had to buy that ticket. He was out the door of the Earthcycles radio bus in minutes and on a plane to Ecuador the next morning. He later reimbursed her and had a great walk around Ecuador before returning to Long Walk 2. -- Brenda Norrell, Censored News Contact for more information:
