Thank you to everyone that donated! While we did not make 100% funding, we were able to work out something with what was provided to get bus fare for Maila. 

Again, thank you <3


Description:


Hello everyone. I am fundraising for a friend in need. Her father passed away the day before her birthday [September 1st]. Because of her situation and how last minute everything is, she does not have a way to get to the funeral. While she lives in California, the funeral is in Texas this weekend. 

I have spoken with American Airlines, which goes directly to her destination city, and they are offering a firm bereavement rate. The amount posted above is to accommodate for flight, baggage check both directions with one bag, and required gas money to get her to and from the airport. 

We have two days to come up with the funds in order to successfully book a flight. 

Updates will be added if something changes.

You can view the obituary here . 

Any personal inquiries can be emailed to me at pacificcoasttkd@yahoo.com

Please, if you have ever lost a close family member or know what it is like to not have any closure in a similar situation, I humbly ask for your help. Pocket change, whatever you can give.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
-Alesha Byrne


::::All right folks, update number one::::::

THANK YOU to those who have donated so far. Thanks to you we are a third of the way to our goal! 

As far as outside resources go, I have been on the phone repeatedly since midnight trying to find any resource for bereavement or travel assistance. Because of recent cuts to the budget in California for human assistance, there is no longer an outlet for this. We are quite literally on our own. 

So please, if you have a spare minute, signal boost. A second or two of effort on your part could mean the world to a very sweet person.

Good luck, Maila. Let me know if there's anything I can help with in the future. Send some love to Alesha-- she's the one who told me about you, and she is working tirelessly to get you to Texas.
