As we head towards the second half of our fundraising period, we are close to reaching the half-way mark of $NZ3,000. Would be awesome to cross that line by the weekend so if you have networks you can forward an encouraging message with the link to #FTLOVB crowdfunding page https://gogetfunding.com/for-the-love-of-bhutan/ that would be so appreciated! To check out some more news from Dr Chencho in Bhutan with videos of his work there in Thimphu, visit the #FTLOVB Facebook page on this link: https://facebook.com/FTLOVB/

With the generous donations so far we can now look forward to welcoming Dr Chencho to Aotearoa soon, we are still fundraising to cover the costs of conference registration, visa, accommodation, travel and other costs while here. May you be happy and well, thank you for your support, Teresa.

Huge thankyou to everyone for such generous contributions! Humbled and encouraged to see my determination that Dr Chencho make it to the IASP Conference in Aotearoa is so widely shared. The #FTLOVB Facebook page is now up. There are links to relevant papers and articles; details of Dr Chencho's public talk in Auckland and his short welcome to #FTLOVB video from Bhutan

Warm thankyou to all for your support. We have almost reached the 1/3 mark of our goal. That means we can pay Dr Chencho's flights from Bangkok to Auckland and his registration at the IASP Conference. We are optimistic continued suppirt will flow towards our fundraising #FTLOVB and we can meet the cost for Paro to Bangkok flights , his visa and Dr Chencho's accommodation, travel and other costs while in NZ. Please continue to support by sharing with friends and family and through your networks. Nga mihi nui, Teresa

Very touched by the generous support flowing towards Dr Chenco's attendance at the Asia Pacific Regional IASP Conference. Only a few days in to the fundraising effort and already we are close to funding the costs of his flights to and from Bangkok. Good news that his NZ Visa has now been issued with support from the Bhutanese Government. Already a lot of enthusiasm for Dr Chencho's visit to NZ and we are planning to include some speaking engagements/ q & a evenings into his schedule.
