This will mark the first time I have outwardly asked for something from readers. And the ask is only that you use the link below if you intend to purchase a flight on Porter Airlines over the next 5 days. Right now, Porter Airlines has a seat sale on… up to 50% off of your airfare as long as you book by March 11th, and travel between April 1st and June 26th, 2013, when you purchase your fare through Buytopia’s deal of the day.
Why? Well… that’s a bit of a story that I’ll share.
My sister has been going to school for 4 years now in a fashion design program. In late April, she has her final project/graduation event where she and the rest of her graduating class will be hosting a fashion show to display some of their creations. Now, I’m pretty proud of my sister – as the whole family is… she’s certainly been a big supporter of mine, and especially through this project so far… so come the week of April 15th, my ENTIRE family is flying out to Vancouver to spend a few days with her to celebrate and see her final show. (Sis + her class doing a Harlem Shake video… I know you’re all tired of those, but oh well.)
And I would LOVE to be there. But, as you know… A Sponsored Life means I only have $100 in emergency money to be able to make it happen… alas, that, plus accommodations, food etc… it just won’t happen for $100.
Now, while it would be a dream if an airline/railway and/or a hotel were interested in providing an opportunity to get out there/stay out there… I need to be proactive in order to make this happen. Thus the affiliate link to buy your airfare on Porter for up to 50% off – my thinking is this… if you buy a flight, well that will add dollars to my account – for which seems fair to be able to use those exclusively for the purpose of getting a return flight to Vancouver!
Anyway, let me know if anyone decides to purchase a flight AND if you happen to know someone who is going to buy one, please do me the wonderful favour of providing my code to them: http://bit.ly/porter50off
Sidenote: I have a few other initiatives in mind to help make this challenge a reality! More on that in the coming days.
