Hi! My name is Kira. I'm a single mom living in North Carolina and I am currently trying to raise enough money to go visit my grandmother out in Colorado at the end of September. It has been almost 20 years since I last saw her, due to family and financial issues which made it impossible to travel. She's a really sweet old lady; however she is now living with dimentia and Parkinson's disease. I decided to plan this trip to go see her because I believe that time is truly an important gift and should be spent on those we love the most. I work long hours at a restaurant here in NC and have been saving for this trip for a few months now; I just need a little extra help to make sure everything goes smoothly! The donations that I receive will go toward helping to pay for my gas to drive out there, a 2-night stay in a hotel, and all of my meals. I drive a 2001 Pathfinder, so my round trip gas expenses are going to be approximately $550 alone! Any and all donations would be very helpful and even more appreciated. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my story and helping to make this trip possible for me!
