My Travel Story

Hi (:

I started this campaign because I'm in a long distance relationship and I want to meet my boyfriend who lives in England. I live in America so the cost of flying out there is outrageous. My family doesn't have a lot of money but they know how much I wanted to go so they suggested I make a fundraiser. So here I am!
So I've been lucky enough to meet an amazing guy who lives there and we've been together for a while now. I really want to have the opportunity to see him next summer but I'm not in the financial state that I can do that. 
It would take so long for me to save money ( which I'm still doing - just under 60 a month which in the end will only cover the cost of a hotel . Which is still a start! ) and have enough to go out there. I'm sacrificing so much for this trip and am not ready to back down ! (:
Many of you might be thinking " Well why don't you just get a job and earn the money yourself ? "
Well...It's a little bit more complicated than that. I'm an honor student and I have to maintain my A grades in order to go as well. So I've decided rather than get a job or participate in sports, I'd focus on school and raising money, which I don't regret doing at all.
It's entirely possible that if I don't raise this money I won't be able to take the opportunity at all. I need around 1,600 for a plane ticket, and extra fees. Thank you for anyone consider donating and being a part of my journey. Any small donation has a huge affect for me.

*by the way after my trip I will post pictures of our time together on my Instagram and I'll be happy to thank you personally. *
