Keeping Alani in Aus

I’m in love with my Melbourne community and beyond excited to continue building a life with my phenomenal partner Carter, and I need your help to fund my visa and keep me in  Australia, my HOME, with my Love.

I left Portland almost 5 years ago, unsure of what I was looking for, but 100% certain that things needed a drastic change. After canceling my return ticket home (huge leap into the unknown) and spending 6 months in Thailand studying yoga, I was drawn to Australia's shores.

When I arrived in Melbourne, I knew I was home, and was welcomed in with so much generosity, excitement and heart. I instantly fell into the most beautiful, supportive and creative community I could have ever thought possible.

I want to continue to deepen the juicy friendships I’ve formed, keep holding space for courageous people going through transformation and growth, and continue to support the amazing clients who have entrusted me with holding them in vulnerability as they step into their own power and healing.

Your help and support is needed in Keeping Alani in Aus.

If we’ve ever shared laughter and cuddles, deep and meaningful conversations, support and space holding, wisdom and insights, good company and silliness, or you’ve been impacted by my support, presence or guidance in some way…please help me make Australia home!

I want to continue to give back to, feed and grow this incredible community that has welcomed me with open arms!

This amazing man that I’m blessed to call my partner has really solidified my desire to make Melbourne my OFFICIAL home.

Carter and I met through a mutual friend over 1.5 years ago (while I was studying) and have been together since the day we met!! The connection was undeniable. Our relationship has endured, deepened, and blossomed throughout the intense challenges and circumstances, and we are more in love than ever! We're committed to love, and all the hurdles along the way.

We’ve decided to apply for a Partnership Visa and deepen our commitment to our future. LOVE WINS!!

The nitty gritties:

I need to file my application by January 1st, which is rapidly approching!

Australian Immigration is incredibly expensive (one of the most expensive in the world!), and I would love your help in order to make this happen.

My birthday is December 30th, and this would be the BEST birthday gift EVER!

So, if you want to be a part of giving this lady something extra special and life-changing for years to come, no amount is too small!

Whether you contribute $20, $45, $100, $250 or more, literally EVERY DOLLAR HELPS.

This is what your generous and oh-so-appreciated donations will be going towards:

-       Visa fee = $7,000
-       Existing immigration lawyer and agent fees = $400
-       Health check - $310
-       Police checks (Australia and US) = $200
-       Certified copy of birth certificate = $90
-       Total = $8,000

NOTE: There are huge legal fees and other additional costs (thousands of dollars worth) that we have not listed here that Carter and I will both be paying for in order to make this happen, so your contributions here are much appreciated!

Your support means so much not only to me, but to my partner, my friends and community in Melbourne, and all the people across the world who want me to be happy in life!

I’ve NEVER met a community of humans more dedicated to growth, truth, love, self-reflection, authentic connection, vulnerability and supporting fellow humans. THANK YOU to all the amazing people who have come into my life!

I’m a better human because of YOU.

Due to the love, support and encouragement of my beautiful partner, my community in Melbourne, my amazing friends and family back home, and all the wonderful people I’ve met in my travels, I’m living a wonderful life.

The rich and fertile culture of transformation and self-love in Melbourne has supported me in birthing and growing my two businesses - The Radiant Health Coach & Embodied Healing Therapies - which I’m SO passionate about. Both are designed to support people in inner-integration, deepening their self-love and stepping into more authentic living. I have an amazing partner, wonderful friends, and am pursuing my dreams!!

I love it here in Australia and want to be able to rest in the knowing that I can stay in a place that feels more like home than anywhere I’ve ever lived and build a life with the man I love.

Your gift and support are much appreciated, and I want to amplify that gratitude by offering in return something that will support and nurture YOU!

Check out the reward levels for various donation amounts and get something back for your generosity. People loving and supporting people!

I’m calling on my community to help us make this dream a reality.

Sweethearts, will you join me?

Thank you in advance, beautiful humans! <3
