My Travel Story

by: Leslie Mac Start Date: Aug 23, 2016 - End Date: Oct 31, 2016
If you are reading this you likely know me personally OR know me due to my social justice work. I'm raising funds to finance a trip for our 15th wedding anniversary to Jamaica. My day to day work fighting oppression & supporting Black organizers is both difficult and supremely underpaid. Most of my work is not paid at all. This trip is an important one not only because of the anniversary milestone, but also because of a significant need for self-care right now for me personally. After 2+ years of non stop organizing, I'm taking a break & I need your help to make it as nourishing & carefree as possible!

I have also invited several other Black women who have been working dilligently in the movement for the last few years on the trip. This will be a healing space for all of us and a time to leave behind the stresses of our day to day work and focus on ourselves.


  • 83% And Counting - 42 Days Left!

    Checking in to let everyone know I've added some local tour funds to the trip campaign. We only use local tour guides so these trips will go directly to local Jamaicans. Thanks again for the support. Please keep sharing!

    Back over 75% - Peek at the trip location!
    So amazing to see we are at 78% with the new campaign goal. I wish you all knew the sense of relief that washes over me with each donation. The ability to afford this trip without stressing our household to the breaking point means everything to us. We are staying at a private villa where our money will go directly to locals vs a large corp owned resort. Donor Reward recipients - look for an email soon with details about your reward. Thanks again - please keep sharing, 49 days left & $15 a day will allow us to hit the goal!
