Unite my new baby niece and I (my first niece at that) by helping me raise money to fly from Amsterdam to New Brunswick Canada. I am a Canadian who moved to Holland nearly four years ago. I knew when I moved away that I was leaving behind many beloved family and friends. I did not know how hard it would be to travel back home, actually to get the money to travel back home. I did not foresee how heart broken I would be this week when my little brother had his first child. Oh I am very happy for him, but so heartbroken that I cannot share the joy with him, give him a hug and hold is precious baby girl!
I also need money for a car rental for a portion of my visit. My accomodation will be free, since I will stay with family, most time with my niece and her Daddy (my brother). Most of my food will be provided by family, and not from restaurants, but homemade cheapish food.
Why do I deserve this, or why should you give me money for this trip across the ocean? I must honesty say, there are so many people who deserve it just as much even more than I do. However I have faith that if it is meant to be you will all make it happen with me. Most of my reasons are selfish, but I do want to be there for support for my brother and his girlfriend. My brother is over the moon with the birth of his first child, it is the best time of his life so far. I want to be there to share in the joy with him. I want to have memories of my niece while she is still young. Without your help, this may not happen, although I am trying to save money on my own.
I teach English as a second language and my partner works hard as a computer programmer, but we just don't have nearly three thousand euros. If it is in your heart to give, please give me the biggest gift I have ever received.
For every donation I will be forever grateful. I wil take tons of pictures and create videos for youtube to share with you all! Thanks for taking the time to hear my story!
