My Travel Story

by: Jillian Stith Start Date: Jun 1, 2017 - End Date: Oct 1, 2017
Thank you so much for visiting this campaign!

I am one of five kids - three beautiful younger siblings and one stellar big sister. My only little sister is Olivia and she is one of the brightest lights of my life. 

Unfortunately, due to parental divorce, we have been separated by the Pacific Ocean for all our lives with Olivia in the US and me in Australia. To say that it is hard to apart from your siblings is an understatement and we have only been able to connect once every few years since Olivia was born.

Olivia is 18 and attending college to be a hair dresser. She works part time on minimum wage as a hostess at a restaurant and doesn't have the means to come and see me over here in Australia. Not only has she never been to Australia, she has never left the US at all so coming all this way to see me would be out of this world!

I know what you are thinking - you are her big sister! Why can't you help her get there? Sadly I barely make enough to support myself but would give her (and my other siblings) the entire world if it was mine to give. 

I can't begin to explain how it would improve our lives to have her come here, even for a few weeks. Olivia struggles with her isolation and misses me so badly it kills her. To be able to hug her and laugh with her and even just sit next to her would be indescribable. I would love to suprise her with a trip like this.


Love,
