Freedom Trippers Mediterranean Cruise

Donation protected
My name is Galen, I am 23 years old and I have cerebral palsy. I dream passionately of travel, but have not had many opportunities, because of the difficulties of traveling with very limited mobility and an electric wheelchair. My cousin Gigi has a form of muscular dystrophy, which greatly affects her abilities as well. She sometimes can walk with assistance and sometimes she uses a manual wheelchair.
She called me a couple of months ago, and was very excited about an all-you-can-fly airline pass that she purchased. I was telling her that I had been saving to try to take a cruise, but needed somebody that was willing to go with me. I told her that I was unsure how to get from place to place and she immediately said, “Lets go! We will figure it out!” As we talked about our ideas and started researching HOW we would accomplish our dreams, we realized that this was something that needed to be documented and available to people with limitations of their own.
We discussed how we could take trips and document our experiences and offer this information to people via social media and Freedom Trippers was conceived!

Why do we need money?
*Corporation (Foundation) paperwork & filing
*Phone and service
*Grips for recording from desks & wheelchairs
*GoPros & chest harness / accessories
*MacBook Computer

June 2025 trip! 7 NIGHTS GREECE & TURKEY cruise plus flights, taxis, hotels & accessible excursions for 4 people. My cousin and I and 2 caregivers.

We have purchased the domain, created the website FreedomTrippers.org and are currently working on our social media pages and the paperwork required to start our foundation. We have put a down payment on our first journey, 7 day Greek Islands and Turkey cruise which sails June 2025. My cousin and I both live on Social Security, and we are investing our time and money into this project but we could sure use some help! If you would like to support us on our mission, please donate to our GoFundMe. We really appreciate all the love and support and look forward to helping those people with limited physical abilities achieve their dreams of traveling!
