Hey there everyone. My name's Jason and on August 30th my best friend Brandon Kent will be getting married to his fiance Jessica Ma and I was asked to be one of his two groomsmen (the other is the best man Brandon Keys). Brandon has done a lot more for me than he will ever know. He brought kindness and friendship into my life at a time where everything was starting to really head south. He inspired me to not stress the things that are out of my control and to take things like work and find ways to make them fun. In my life, I have never had a friend like Brandon. He's a true best friend and when he asked me to be his other groomsman, I haven't ever felt so honored. The only problem....financial need. I just moved to Iowa City, Iowa to be with the woman that I love and unfortunately, the amount of money that it would take for the both of us (or at minimum just me) to get to fly to the wedding (in Jacksonville, FL), get fitted for my tux, get the hotel/rental car, and the extra expenses that go with a trip like this (gas to airport which is 4 hours away, parking at airport, food, bag fees, etc) are just too much for us to handle on our own. I went ahead and added up the lowest price scenario for just me to go to the wedding and the price would be about $1500 and for my girlfriend to come with would be around $2000 or so. I gave up a great job in Gainesville, Fl to give love a shot and I really don't want to miss out on my best friends wedding because of it. So I hope the generous people of the internet will help me and my girlfriend get to the event! Any funds after reaching $2000 will go directly to the bride and groom to help pay for their expenses for the wedding. Thanks again so much for your time in reading this and donations should you choose to make them.
