Wasn't sure if this was acceptable or not, please feel free to remove if it's not cool... but it involves naked women dancing, so I think that places it fairly high on Steadicam Operator's interests...

My friend Rachel is a burlesque dancer, and she was invited to compete at the World Burlesque Games in London in May, 2012. Not only is she a bad ass burlesque dancer (and former roller derby vixen), but she's also a trained opera singer. She's going to compete with her newly created act that she's coined "Operalesque", which is the reason why she was invited to compete.

She's awesome.
She could drink you all under the table.
She has one problem is: COST.

She has a nearly 2 year old daughter, Norah (who kicks all sorts of ass), so she and her husband can't really afford to just send Rachel to London on short notice, even for this once in a lifetime opportunity. So, if you can donate, please do! If you can't donate, then please share this with someone who can? Thanks!

My life is filled with girls named Rachel it seems. This one lives in New Haven, CT, and we've been friends since college. I've got a few more scattered around the country.
