Help Stef Reunite With Her Sisters

Hi, I'm Bell and almost 6 years ago my little sister had to move away. I miss her more than anything and so i wanted to help her raise money. Here's a message from her to tell you a little bit about our story...


My name is Estefani Cristalino and I need your help. I was born in Venezuela, but raised in States. My parents moved my two sisters and I to America, in hopes of a better life. We left when I was four years old. Finding work wasn't easy for my father, because of our status, but he managed to provide for our family. We never had much, but we always had each other. Things were great, for many years. But things changed over nights for us and we ultimately had to leave the U.S. My sisters, who had married, were able to stay. Being the youngest has its disadvantages I guess. I was sad to leave, but not because of the life I lead or the friends I had met. My sisters and my niece are everything to me, they had been my best friends for so long.. It's going on 6 years now, since we left.We still use facebook and call everyday to keep up, and I have hopes of seeing them again. But Venezuela is in a deep depression and the inflation makes it impossible for saving to amount to anything. By now, I'm starting to doubt it's likelihood.. Then a friend told me about this site.The money i raise will go to obtaining a tourist visa and a plane ticket to visit my sisters. I don't like asking for anything, ever, but this might be my only chance and it's worth the risk of putting myself out there.So this is it, my letter to you. If you feel you're in a position to help, I'm someone who could really benefit from your kindness, and would truly appreciate it. Anything would help, a few cents or just a message.Thank you for taking the time to read about me and my family. God bless you
