Marine's Family Disney Trip

Marine Sergeant Dylan Pelt is married to my daughter Brandie, together they have 3 children. This year they were so excited to finally be able to take their 2 oldest children to Disney, a long awaited vacation after his return from his third tour in Afghanistan. The trip is scheduled to take place July 10th, 2014.
Three weeks ago a devastating announcement made by Brandie's sister Crystal would change their plans.
She announced that she is addicted to methamphetamines as is her husband. Hours after her announcement Crystal and her husband gave guardianship of their three children to Dylan and Brandie before entering the DFACS office and declaring that they are meth addicts.
Sgt. Pelt has already paid deposits for their family vacation to Disney and the deposits cannot be refunded this late in the game. They have maxed out their credit cards and exhausted their vacation fund in order to relocate their nieces to their home in North Carolina. Plus, now instead of 3 children they have 6.
Sgt. Pelt and his wife Brandie are more than happy to be able to help and are very thankful that they are able to help (as we all are). But this has placed the Disney trip on hold indefinitely and deposits will be lost unless we can raise money to assure it is still a go.
Sure, we could explain the circumstances and delay the trip because after all Disney is a privilege not a necessity but it would be so special to these children if they could have a few days of pure joy and excitement. Please, please help me to make this trip possible in any way possible. God Bless you all! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO Semper Fi
