Okay people, here is the deal. Derrick needs a guardian /travel companion to go to this camp. Derrick wants Dan to be his travel companion. Nancy will not release money for Dans ticket, WHY I have no clue.
Anyway, Dan needed $800 bz dollars more to secure his ticket.
I have been able to raise $200. just today toward this.
I am a little confused with all the fund raising that has been going on, where is the accountability for the funds, Bank statement? running blogs on exact totals each has raised?
I hear there is "extra money" in the acct. now! excuse me? how can there be extra money when it is suppose to be used for Derricks camp. That means all the expenses of him going including the guardians expenses. If Dan needs a plane ticket to go , it should be out of that EXTRA money. Oh , Wait than it wouldn't be EXTRA money< and what is EXTRA money for? Makes perfect sense to me! HHHHMMMM! Anyone else with an Idea?

How long do we have to raise the money?
I will be back in SP on Sat July 3rd and will bring some items to donate maybe we can auction them off to raise money for his ticket.

Certainly all sounds rather odd. I donated on the understanding that Derrick would be travelling with Dan. What's changed?

Mary, I think they leave the 9th of July!
Peter, What has changed indeed! I think someone needs to be accountable.

It is totally accountable... we have spread sheets with all the #'s. which I am not publishing on this site.... we are still short, for Dan to go,,,,, we have another person, willing and able to take Derrick, @ not EXTRA ticket cost....(2nd person) tickets are booked, and if Dan can go after the fact, he will... depends on alot of stuff that is NO one elses business... I have NO extra funds.... we have extra costs from Berklee that we were not made aware of, until about a week ago... as well...extra costs, re the VISA.... back off... everything is in total order... it amazes me how many of you KNOW what the deal is, but have never even asked me, anything about it.... how could you know! As for bank accounts, it would have cost alot more, had we put all the funds into Belize banks with the exchanges and bank charges... so, it is all on spread sheet, and Derrick is BOOKED to go! This is HIS trip - NOT Dan's...Dan backed off this trip about `10 days ago, and we had to make some decisions, so it is done!

Have a great day

I just hate it when people start stirring up things while they hide behind their posting names and don't let everyone know who they are. It only makes me think that it's someone with a personal agenda who wants to hide behind a pseudonym.

I don't have a "horse in this race" and don't give a care about the books or spreadsheets. Just a visitor that comes down and enjoys the music, like so many others. I just think it is FABULOUS this kid gets this opportunity...rock on Derrick!

It would be very cool if someone posted once in a while about his experiences at Berklee.
