(I am fifteen) My name is Chelsea and I am raising money for myself to study abroad for a year because I don't want to burden my mother with such a large fund.
My parents split when I was young (maybe 5(I can't remember)) so I've grown up seeing my mother struggle with money. My younger brother was born disabled so my mother can't work and we live off benefits. I myself am a middle child, I have one older sister(by three years) and one younger brother(by three years). My brother was born disabled, so from the age of three, I didn't really get any attention from anyone aha. Anyways, the point I was making was that I have personal and family issues and my counselor suggested that I should try to get away from my life for a while. I've never left New Zealand before(born there) or have been on a holiday/vacation so it would be really exciting to go overseas! Honestly, I'm not expecting any donations but my heart goes out to anyone who donates or even bothers to read a small part of my sad life.
I appreciate even the smallest donations. (10cents haha)
Also, I started working at the age of 13 to start saving for this project but I don't have nearly enough. All the funds donated will be used to pay a company (afs) for going abroad. Thank you so much for just reading this, even that's more than enough for me. Also if you think that this isn't worth it or anything or that its just a first world problem that's fine. This is my last hope, or i'm probably going to just not be able to go. It's not a big deal.
P.S This is cringe but, I'm totally down to explaining my situation in more excruciating detail if anyone wants to know haha.
I know it's a ridiculous amount of money but Again thank you if you donated, you just made my like entire life. I love you.
