Update #2 to Help Send McDoc to Haiti on a Medical Mission

Posted by mcdoc on February 21, 2010

When last we left our hero, he had been waiting for the rescheduling of the Boston Team meeting for the Healing Hands for Haiti mission in April.

Since then, the forecasted snowcopalypse 2010 did not materialize for us up here, but rather steered due east through the mid-Atlantc. The re-scheduled meeting was also ultimately canceled due to a weather forecast that did in fact materialize as predicted in a substantial, high-rate snowfall, just in-time for rush hour. While it was no catastrophe, it would have made for a long, miserable and slightly unsafe trek out and back.

Meanwhile, our steering committee staff has proceeded with logistical planning. They have since revised the costs downward, with the round-trip airfare to Port-au-Prince via Miami, and the room and board at $600.80 and $200, respectively.

The air fare is now paid. The room and board check is written and submitted.

NB: The revised fund-raising goal has decreased from $2200 to $1500. This then means that we are now 56% to goal, versus being 38.2%!

Also the dates have been changed and the medical mission shortened by a day, from April 5th – 13th, 2010 to April 3rd – 10th, 2010.

The re-re-scheduled team meeting is set for 7pm, Sunday, February 21st, at the Quincy Medical Center, Conference Room A.

I’ll file an information update from the team meeting, once back from it.
