In addition to fundraising, I've also been experience a lot generosity from people as a new Juneau-ite. Folks have wanted to make sure I'm meeting people and have the right winter gear. Also, I've found that if someone has something to share, they share it!
Just yesterday, a friend of mine realized that we are the same size for skis and boots, and she straight-up GAVE me her downhill skis, boots and poles! She tore her ACL skiing a few years back, and she said she'll never downhill ski again. The skis had been collecting dust in the garage, and Timi knew I was just starting to get into skiing. "Have them! They're yours!" Man, am I lucky!? My big-time skiing cousin saw them when I got home and confirmed what I already knew- they are really nice skis and in great condition. Oh, and they fit perfectly. :)
