The Warrior Queen & The Jellied Eel You'll never see the end of the road while you're travelling with me
Let’s get this clear from the offset; I’m not using Random Questions to ask for money (although if you feel so inclined I’m deeply and sincerely grateful) but I am seeking some assistance with the organising and practicalities of raising funds.
I’m intending to take my sister to Copenhagen at Christmas this year (if you’re interested, the details are here)
Some beautiful online friends have offered to help and it’s been suggested I create a ‘giving page’ in order to enable donations to be made to the fund. This sounded simple enough but apparently it’s not, as I’m not a charity or not for profit organisation, nor would I wish to imply such. I’m merely an individual racing against time to make a wish come true for my sister. I initially thought of setting something up through PayPal, using a ‘Donate’ button but having read numerous articles like this and this it doesn’t seem like such a good idea and I’m now rather scared of falling foul of the law (whether that be PayPal law or the real deal).
So the question: bearing in mind that I’m really inept at computery stuff, what would you suggest as a good way to go about this?
Further question: due to Sister’s needs (sight and Asperger) it would be far better for her if we could find a self contained apartment for our stay, rather than separate hotel rooms. We’re only talking about 3 or 4 days maximum at some point during the couple of weeks before Christmas. Are you familiar with Copenhagen? Can you point me in the right direction for good value accommodation of this type? Do you know of some hidden gems? Suggestions, hints and tips are very much welcomed.
Bonus question, to open this up beyond me and my family: if you could take a loved one on a trip anywhere in the world as a gift, where would it be and who would it be for?
