Bring Nando Home

Hi Friends + Family,

I'm here with a heavy heart to inform you of the immigration struggle that Fernando and I are facing currently. Fernando has been in Mexico for the past month and has been denied his green card, which was totally unexpected and a punch to the gut.  This means he will not be able to return unless we get an attourney involved and work through a different process. 

We just moved from Brooklyn to Vermont which means I'm now here flying solo trying to make ends meet and we are unable to pay our way with the costs of an attourney. Anyone that knows Nando and I, knows that this is hard for us to have to ask for this kind of support.

We're raising as much money as possible to cover attourney fees and any other fees that may arise. Every little bit helps.  Without these funds, we will not be able to start the process and Nando will be stuck down there for even longer. 

We really need and appreciate any support you're willing to give.  Fernando's US friends and family miss him very much and are saddened to see him in this position.  Please help if you can!

Lots of LOVE,
Bailey + Fernando
