In the interest of fostering excellent international relations between two affectionately inclined parties, and whereas most people are suckers for a story of ocean-crossed lovers of limited means, we are opening this fundraiser to give one of the nicest people in the world an opportunity to visit another country, expand her horizons, and, just maybe, forge a connection with a similarly inclined person.
To translate: Lauren has never been to the UK, and I cannot afford to completely fund her trip myself, so I need a little help.
She's going to be my bridesmaid, people, so, if you have a few spare coins, please consider helping to finance her trip. This may be the only time I can show her the places that have become important to me, and there's a young man waiting to see her, too.
If you can help us out, it will he the chance for her to see a place she may very well never have opportunity to visit again. Isn't it worth just a little cash, for such a nice girl?
