Friends and Family,
As some of you may know I currently live in Greeley, CO. Ever since I moved out here in July, my girlfriend (Amber) and I have been working and planning to come back home to Evansville to see family and friends for Christmas. Amber and I have not been home since the summer and missing out on the Holidays with friends and family this year is not an option.
It took me longer then expected to find employment when I first moved out here. As a result, personal finances have been considerably tight the past few months. I have been asking my boss for time off around Christmas for the past two months, but haven't received confirmation until now. And as I expected, flight prices back home have increased considerably.
Amber and I intend to book our flights home by the end of this month. We've done the research and after estimating flight costs (with taxes and baggage fees) it will likely cost $500-600 for each of us to fly back home. So as a whole we are hoping to raise $1200 to cover flight costs for both of us.
If you are able please donate before the 3rd week in December, which is when we intend to fly back home for the Holidays. Even if you cannot donate, we strongly ask for you to pray for us as we work towards getting home for Christmas!
