Our names are Avery and Matilda. We've been best friends for five years, despite Avery living in America and Matilda in Sweden. All of our communication has been through the internet and Skype; we have never met each other in person. Currently we are together in a long-distance relationship and want to finally meet in person!
We ask for $1,000 to cover transportation (Avery's airline tickets + train to Matilda's town) and the rest of the needed funds (food + activities) Avery will save on his own.
If the fundraiser goes over then they will go towards the other needed funds!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, we hope you're able to donate or at least share with others! A little bit (both money and publicity) goes a long way!
I'm 18 years old and am a professional artist (website in progress but check Matilda out here!). I want to be an artist that works with video game design and in general visual stuff. Drawing and painting, both digitally + on canvases, are my biggest passions. Currently I work on a variety of commissions.
Like Avery, I love playing video games, usually a lot of mmog's (Massive Multiplayer Online Games) and indie games such as Undertale. Dancing and making music are also some of my interests.
Big shout out to Avery for being cute, attractive, cool, smart, amazing, friendly, beautiful, nice, handsome, incredible, adorable. He always listens, loves, and believes in me.
I'm 19 years old and a full-time college student, majoring in computer science. My hobbies when I'm not studying are playing a variety of video games (PC, 3DS, and WiiU), drinking lots of water, doodling, fixing computers (software + hardware), and talking to my friends (including Matilda).
It's really great to talk to Matilda, no matter what mood I'm in, because she really listens and gives good advice that's really considerate to all (if any) parties involved!! She's very considerate, kind, a really great artist, funny, clever, and overall just a wonderful person!!
Q: Why are you making a fundraiser?
A: My parents are willing to cover a bit of the costs for the overall trip, but most of it is up to me to come up with funds for. I'm just a mere full-time college student, trying to save up as much as possible. Whenever I'm able to set aside substantial amount, the amount needed will be reduced and reflected in the meter! If this site doesn't work of if you want to do it directly, message me on Facebook for alternate!
I'm using gogetfunding as it allows me to keep most of the money (part of the $1k will automatically be taken away by the website), as oppose to some other sites.
Q: Why now?
A: If not now, then when? As I progress as a college student, summers will be more reserved for internships and work, so right now is best.
Q: How long is the trip?
A: 3 weeks in May! So shortly after finals but before my summer chemistry classes start in June.
Q: What does this cover?
A: Transportation (including bus + train fares in Sweden) but especially the plane tickets, as they are the most expensive + hard to save up for part of this trip!
