WHAT~~Hello everyone! I'm setting up this fundraiser to help me and my husband get the funds to travel to the USA during the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays. I'm an American married to an Aussie and have lived in Australia for 10 1/2 years. It has been almost 4 years since I have been able to see or spend time with my family in the USA.
WHY~~I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. The last time I travelled to the US was when my father died in 2010. My mother has since developed major health problems, including mini strokes and dementia. I would love to be able to see her again before her problems progress too far. I want to put my arms around my kids and grandchildren and be able to share the holiday spirit with them all. My husband hasn't seen my family in over 7 years as he is the sole bread winner and holds down the fort. I suffer from a lot of chronic back pain, major depression and anxiety and draw a small disability pension for these issues. We basically live pay to pay in order to live and pay our bills and have no savings left for the luxury of travel. Any amount would be appreciated to help me reach this goal. I'm putting my faith in the compassion of human nature to help where help is truly needed. I consider myself a good person who has a lot of friends and family that I care about. I've always given of my time whenever needed for them without ever expecting anything in return.
HOW~~I'm reaching out to others this time and hope the generous spirit will reach those who are able to give. Any amount will be greatly and humbly appreciated. Just click on the paypal link to make your donation. Please share my link with all of your family, friends, co-workers, etc. to make this happen. Thank you so much for reading my story and may you be blessed with love and light. HUGS HUGS and more HUGS!
