To date, the Fundrazr reports we are at 16% of the goal with seven-hundred seventy-five dollars showing in the till. In fact, additional contributions have come in bringing us a little further than that.
Phase #1: The Passport
* Enough money was raised to apply for the passport. It should arrive any day now, and that is a big step in the process.
Phase #2: The Airfare
* This is the most time-sensitive part of the mission. We have a time-certain window in which this adventure must occur. It can't interfere with my studies at the University of Florida, and of course we have to be in Copenhagen for the reservations at NOMA which are on the evening of September 29th. Each day that passes, the prices for airline tickets become more scarce for our plans, and go up in price. Tickets close to the departure date are selling for four thousand dollars per person in flipping coach! Now is the time to get the best price, and we are so close to the mark right now! I believe another three hundred dollars will put this phase of the operation into success mode! You can help!
Phase #3: Dinner at Noma
* No bones about it, with the wine-pairing, it's $550 bucks including tip. Luckily, there is a good deal of time before this happens so there is no immediate pressure. To encurage success, I have implemented a number of terrific 'PERKS' at the Operation Copenhagen Fundrazr site. For very reasonable prices, you can purchase Tom Miller unique artworks. You can also purchase larger works for slightly unreasonable prices, which will help even more. Finally, in the Tom Miller Store, you can buy music, art, and 'literature' for not a lot of money. These smaller purchases do go a long way if many people take advantage of the store.
I believe the dream will be successful. I believe in carrying out this performance art piece, with your help, it will inspire others to go for it! To live their dreams too! I believe this event will be entertaining, and for those who contribute you will have exclusive access to the Copenhagen blog, photos of the experience, and revelations which come as a result. I hope to meet head chef, Rene Redzepi and offer greetings from the Known Center of the Universe, Gainesville, Florida. I plan to eat ants if they are available on the menu. Any insects, for that matter, for the evolution of our species I am happy to be that representative. You can help me eat bugs.
