Seeking for sponsorship

Dear friends. Sorry that I missed to update my blog. We have left Karakurum and now back to Islamabad to visit friends and doing some administrative matters before we make a move to Iran, which will be a larger country for us to cross.
We are now staying in my friend’s home. He father had 10 children. 8 of them are girls and they are at about the age of 20s. Sam loved them as they are like our classmate. We could communicate well and we would chat everything under the sky.
Sam and I noticed that our funds were getting low and we are moving very slow. We had spent many days in Pakistan and spent most of the fund on this Hope Too due to its incompetency.
We would seek your kindness gratitude to support our fund by purchasing the souvenirs that we had gathered.
Also we are looking for sponsorship for our lodging in India, which the invoice and bills of our stay had been consolidated. For our lodging sponsor, you will recive all my lodging invoice of India and a Pakistan key chain at a rate of SGD$297.00. The items had been sent to Singapore to a friend for safe keep.

The second item for sale is the Silk route T-shirt, which I only see in Hunza, karakurum. It shows the map of karakurum and it is a rare piece of t-shirt. We are selling it at SGD$100.00.

We thank your support in reading our blog and will update on the way to Iran.

Look like you really did not plan your financial properly and now you ended up have to sell a t-shirt for $100, getting ppl to pay for your lodge.
You think it will work in long run? Who will sponser you when it is only one side ganing situation?
Suggest you update your blog regularly and post some interested articles/photos along your way as often as possible. to attract more ppl to your blog. Else I think you will back home soon

Planning financials? That's for those who don't dare to take a leap of faith, and only move forward when they are secure.

"There are no easy roads to anywhere worth going."

For those who dare to follow their dream, they often find unlikely and unknown allies to help - as he found out when he met his hospitable hosts along the way.

Yes, there are people who expect nothing in return for their help.

In short term yes. ppl who gets interested in your dream will help you to move on. But then look at your blog. Is getting less interesting and is not frequently update. Why dun you update what's going on your trip? When your blog gets more interesting, more ppl will comes in and hence more chance to get some help from bloggers.

i would choose to be more encouraging... i don't think its easy to do what they are doing now. they are not some superstars whom sponsors GO to him. yet they are trying their best to fight for their dream and never giive up. i find it very inspiring.

India is a very poor country and its people are underprivileged and downtrodden. That is why you find them acting in this way. Forgive and forget. They have had a really tough life ever since they were born. To know all, is to forgive all.
