Dear friend--

You are receiving this email because you either (a) have made a firm commitment to host Yousef Aljamal on his upcoming October speaking tour; (b) have expressed interest in hosting him; or (c) are part of our tour-planning team.

Big thanks to those whose firm commitments we have received! These folks are located in Atlanta GA, Madison WI, and Portland OR. So with those destinations, along with the ones up and down the Boston-NYC-Washington DC "Acela Line" that we are also actively planning, we already have a fine outline for a 16-day tour.

If you are not in one of the above-listed places but want to make a firm commitment to host Yousef, please get your commitment and your $300 earnest money to us at your very earliest convenience! Once we have all destinations agreed, we can work to finetune his actual schedule.

If you need a recap on how we're doing the planning, you can find it here.

If you have sent your firm commitment and your earnest-money payment to our PO Box in Washington DC but are not one of the above-listed destinations, please let me know asap. I am sorry to say that the arrangements we'd made to have the PO Box check regularly during my vacation fell through; so the mailbox will not be checked until July 30.

This week, Yousef has once again provided us with a great piece of writing about life in Gaza, for our blog. So do check that out.

Our tour-planning team currently consists of JWE Board member Abigail Metzger,  who'll be working primarily with NYC-area event hosts and activities; Lora Lucero, a key volunteer who I hope will be working with many aspects of the tour, and myself.

We're delighted to be working with you on this project!

Warmest wishes--

Helena.
