As much of a writer that I am, there are truly no words I can put together to honestly explain why you should donate to this family.
Would saying that:
-It would be a life changing experience.
-It would help many lives.
-It would bring hope to those who need it.
Would saying any of those make a difference. I've rewritten this message more times than I can remember just to get the perfect one out there. I find it easy to help others and give advice when needed but is it harder when the tables are turned and I'm the one asking for a helping hand?
I'm apart of this extended family of 12. For years we've overcame any obstacle that has seemed to step in our path. We've conquered battle after battle strung our way. Does that mean we don't deserve this? Because we aren't burdened and pushed down.
I like to think that is not the case. I like to think that our perseverance and dedication to keep moving on and keep fighting makes us that must warranted toward this. That my family deserves something special to happen to us. Something that shows that all this pushing and being knocked around was worth it.
I've never been on a family vacation, that's one thing I want my family to get the experience of. No worries for a week, enjoying ourselves as we should be able to do as one. There are so many things I want to be able to provide my family with, but I can't do it alone.
I'm looking to you now for help. I'm asking that you take my family into your hearts and trust me when I say how honorably happy this would make us. We would forever be thankful that you even donated any amount to us. That you, even from reading this, believe in us and understand the steps we have taken, built for ourselves, fallen down, and risen back on top of. We just need someone else out there to give us faith in remaining strong through these dark days and nights.
