Christmas in America with Dad

$2,800 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 6 months
Created March 11, 2018
Last year, I started a fundraiser to bring my stepson Thomas (10), who lives in South Africa with his mother, here to Florida to spend Christmas with us (and also go to Disney World). It was an incredible success, we had so many generous donations and exceeded our goal. Thank you again to everyone who made that trip possible. It was an amazing time, and saying goodbye was hard.

A lot of people who donated to the last campaign have already urged us to start another and have already pledged to donate. Gary and I didn't want to rely on donations again, but we also realize we just can't make it without help.

However, this year, we are not aiming to raise money for any extras - no Disney World or Legoland. This is a fundraiser for three round trip air tickets only: from Johannesburg via Dubai to Orlando for Thomas and Gary and back again.  Tom is still too young to fly alone - he will be 11 in June and can only fly unaccompanied when 12.  So Gary will have to fly to Johannesburg, pick him up, and deliver him back again, and that will be three tickets.

We were hoping for Gary's dad to bring him over (only having to buy two tickets), but his health is not good enough to be able to fly.

So thank you again, and we appreciate every contribution, no matter how much or how little.
