My Travel Story

by: Jennifer Laceda Start Date: May 25, 2017 - End Date: May 24, 2018
This campaign is for the interest of family and friends who would like to help us raise money for a family trip to East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) in 2022. The fund will be used to pay for flights from Canada to Kenya.

We are the Laceda family (mom, dad, and 3 kids), who aim to fulfill our dream of travelling to East Africa, combining our passion for wildlife, conservation, and cultural travel. We would love to visit the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Maasai Mara regions - fabled lands that we have only seen on nature shows. We dream of encounters with many creatures big or small - and all beautiful - who share the splendour and travail of this planet with us. 

More importantly, we would also like to learn more about the culture of East Africa, particularly the many ethnic tribes within Kenya and Tanzania. It is our goal to visit Maasai, Kikuyu, Meru, Samburu, or Swahili locals, and introduce our children to their customs. Our hope is to volunteer at a local school or village, so that our children learn how others live with so much less than what we have here in Canada.

In lieu of birthday and holiday gifts for the children, we appreciate your gift of helping us achieve our travel dream. A million thanks to YOU for your support!
