Hi to whomever may come across this little fundraiser.
My name is Bryony Smith, I am a 19year old student visa holder in New Zealand living with my parents. We have been in New Zealand for the past 10months, leaving our home, South Africa behind. However that was not all that was left behind, I had to temporarily leave my boyfriend of over 4 years until he can gain entry to New Zealand where we have planned a better life for ourselves and eventually, future family.
His name is Adrian Willmore and we celebrate our 5year anniversary in December this year, unfortunately, on opposite ends of the world. I plead with whomever has anything they could spare, myself and my family cannot afford to send me to visit him as a surprise for our anniversary and having not seen him in almost a year it is a moment I wish with all my heart to become a reality.
For anyone with any long distance relationship experience, you will understand the emotional struggle you go through in attempt to survive the challenge that it is, and so far myself and my partner are cling phenomenally coping wise. However we are both struggling missing each other terribly.
I am sorry for the long read but I don't know how else to get the message across of how much I would cherish seeing him again for our anniversary at least and as motivation to keep fighting.
All in all, I ask a donation, even $1, it brings me $1 closer to seeing him and that's all I could ever ask for, thank you.
