We're humbled, grateful and thrilled that our unique little story has been making headlines LITERALLY all over the world!

Read the heartwarming story of our fundraising efforts and please share our story and remember, no donation is too small! Who has $5 for Gary?....


32 years ago a man named Gary Moore picked a little stuffed fox off the shelf and gave him to a little girl named Jessica Johnson as a last minute 3rd birthday gift. Little did he know the adventures that they would have traveling the world! One year ago Gary was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and his friends are raising money to send HIM on the trip of a lifetime. We're finally sharing these photos as a way to get attention to our fundraising efforts beyond our small circle of loving friends. We're hoping the photos of Mr. Fox's travel adventures may put a smile on your face and you'll be inspired to donate a few dollars to his travel fund.

Who has $5 to help us send Gary on the trip of a lifetime. We think that after 18 rounds of chemotherapy, he needs a nice break! Gary has been hard at work on his health, Lynn has been working long hours and dealing with mounting medical bills, let's make a difference in THEIR lives today! As anyone who knows them will tell you, they are wonderful, kind people who are fighting an all too common battle.

We are filled with gratitude and happiness that this story has made the DailyMail and we hope it spreads even further! If you have any questions you can contact us at travelingmrfox [at] gmail.com!

A special thanks to an amazing journalist and features editor named Matthew Abbott, who happened to stumble upon a couple of my photos on Instagramers Gallery and who made this story happen.
