Bring Caila Home!!

This Christmas let’s *SURPRISE* Caila and bring her home sometime this spring! Caila isn’t planning on coming home again until her service is completed. However, a lot of things are happening this spring that Caila would like to be a part of -- Dave's graduation, Anne's graduation, and some family weddings. Currently, Caila is really bummed she won’t be there and nobody, especially Caila, derserves to be down this holiday season.

So, let’s cheer her up! On Christmas I would love to be able to let her know that we all pitched in to bring her home. She’ll be so so happy :)

I’m hoping to raise enough money to cover a round trip flight from Nicaragua. I’m working with the lovely Mrs. P to get the scheduling figured out. Right now it looks like flights range from $900-$1400. Donate whatever you can to help! If we’re lucky enough to raise more than the flight cost, I will donate it to Caila to cover the cost of getting her dog, Ernie, home. Anything over that will be donated to the Peace Corps.

For now, this is a SURPRISE for Caila so please don’t say anything to her just yet. I will of course give credit to everyone who donates once she receives this gift. But for now, please don’t share the link in something like a public Facebook post but do feel free to share the link directly with anyone you think would like to participate! 

This is will mean so so much to Caila, her family, and myself. Thank you for any and all donations!
