Short Summary


**The video above is just a small sampling of how ridiculous I look when I am in the throes of total joy, along with a considerable amount of images of Bridget and I together (both traveling and not). Prepare to marvel. ****

Times have been super tough for all of us in the last few years. Things seem to be turning around for a lot of us. But, in the spirit of not constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop, I'd like to seize the moment and take a trip with my friend. I have been invited to join one of my very best friends on her work trip to Japan in May. Many of you know Bridget...the most awesomest person on the planet. Trashcan kicker, bar patron tripper, tiny little troublemaker, and phenomenal human being who took me into her home out of the kindess of her heart at one point. To reward all of these awesome qualities, I'd like to reward her with my presence. SIKE.  I realize this may sound like a hollow campaign but for me, after the last few years, there would be no greater reward than getting to do this. Bridget and I have known, and traveled with eachother, for more than ten years. The level of laughter and joy we find together, at EVERY moment or trip we are together, is beyond description. We also have an unhealthy obsession with Lost in Translation, and it seems most urgent to me to not miss out on being together in Japan. Laugh if you will. You should. It's completely ridiculous. If that aint enough....just imagine all the amazing chili I've made for you, drinks, stellar advice, tear-catching, referrals or most importantly HILARIOUS WIT I have given you!!!!! It's also my birthday April 29th. Thanks. I love you.


What We Need & What You Get

Basically I just need some help with some dough kids! To cover costs and stay out of debt which has become increasingly hard in this economy. No sob story, no tear jerking...just the basics. Airfare, food, travel within. Yadda yadda. What you get is a repeat of what you see in the slideshow video above which is basically just a "Best of Kat acting silly in various states of hilarity". It's also a small sampling of what happens when Bridget and I travel together.

The Impact

The impact of your help will be profound and lifechanging. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. One of those things i never have to look back on and regret not having done. Grateful is not heavy enough a word for how I would feel.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't contribute, or don't want to, I get that. But if you want to try and explain to your friends about your crazy friend Kat and her plight, that would be super awesome too!
