I feel bad for having to ask others for funding but this means so much to me. I really want to go to Mine-O-rama (http://www.mineorama.com) in July of next year for my birthday. My birthday is in February but it's going to be too cold to do anything here in the northeast so this would perfect.
For a family of four, the tickets cost $650 and the train will cost about another $400, food and taxis $250 and the hotel stay is about $300. Totaling about $1,600.
I really do love Minecraft and I look up to so many of the Minecraft Youtubers that this would make my so happy. I've spend so many mindless hours playing and watching Minecraft that it has really effected my life. Its made me a happier person knowing I have something to take my mind off of things at the end of the day. It's not only me, my little brother loves minecraft and it would be so awesome for him to met the minecraft celebs.
This year has been really hard on my whole family from my grandfather's passing to foreclosing on the house I grew up in. I've had go to therapy for generalized anxiety disorder which has really lowered my self-stem. So money has been really tight and I know that this is basically my only chance at having a birthday gift. I know my family could never afford this so that's why I'm asking.
I really do appreciate it and thank anyone who even took the time to read this.
