Jenn and David's Australian Dream

$13,450 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 168 people in 49 months

It’s time. Time to dig deep and make Jenn and David’s Aussie adventure a reality. Time to show them, when they need it most, that dreams really do come true.

These are two of the most giving people. They open their homes and their hearts, they feed, they house, and they never turn anyone away. Together they have already waged one war and now, sadly, it's round two as cancer is battling them again.

And so, in recognition of their generosity of spirit, we who are their friends in New Orleans and around the world, want to send them on their dream vacation, a most excellent 'Aussie Adventure'. We invite you to join us and raise the funds needed.

This very special most excellent adventure will include round-trip airfare, all the sights of Sydney; the outback spirituality of Uluru; and maybe even seats in the grandstand to watch David’s beloved Saints (St Kilda that is) play some footy!

This is a time to be positive, excited and happy that we can give back to this special couple. It’s time to get this done! We know you don't always have dollars to spare, but we want you to give even if it’s just a little bit. We ask you to spread the word, do some fundraising of your own, sell something, forego sending holiday cards, skip that extra coffee…whatever it takes.

Details of the trip may change to accommodate Jenn’s treatment and health, but as a minimum will include round-trip airfare, a stay fit for the Jamns on Sydney’s world famous harbour, a long weekend Aussie House Party at Chez Leanne, a visit to Ayer’s Rock/Uluru for the ultimate Aussie Outback Experience and some spending money for meals. Hopefully Melbourne and maybe even Cairns will be included on the itinerary, but if we can’t get Jenn and David to them, well then the Aussie contingent will just bring their part of the world to the celebrations in Sydney!

If you have any questions about funding or need assistance with a fundraising idea please contact our Campaign Manager, Mary. If you have any questions about Jenn’s health, please be patient and understand and respect the issues they are facing.

We hope that not only you, our treasured friends will help, but also your friends and friends of friends who believe karma comes full circle.

All you need is love.  The Threadhead Nation

We didn't quite reach the goal, so if you would still like to contribute, please do so as I will be closing out this account Friday morning. If after that, you'd still like to make a donation, please do so personally to Jenn and David. Again, thank you everyone! All of you are truly wonderful!
