My Travel Story

by: Angela Cox Start Date: Aug 2, 2016 - End Date: Dec 1, 2016
Hi and thank you for finding me amongst all the worthwhile wolunteer places, internships and everything else people wish to do.
I, myself, do not want this. Mine is strictly personal.
I would like to take my daughter to New York Christmas Shopping.
My daughter is 17, and will be starting university in September, for which I could not be more proud.
I have never been able to take her on holiday.
I have been a single mum from before I found out I was pregnant with her.
Every penny I have had has gone on keeping a roof over our head, on paying bills, tutors, school books, online courses to help her succeed in what she wants to do, to make sure she has a better life for herself, without having to worry about 'am I going to pay this, or eat'. I do not regret a second of my decisions, nor my life, however, I want to to have one memory of us, just being away, of me saying 'I can't afford to'.
I understand that there are millions of other people in exactly the same position as me, and people on here with far more worthwhile causes than mine, however, please, just one pound, one dollar, one euro, from everyone that may find this, would make my dreams come true, and a beautiful memory for my child. 

Thank you for taking your time in reading this xx
