Mercy & Jo's Week of FUN

As you may know, Mercy and Jo left their homes in the Philippines almost 20 years ago and have worked tirelessly for our family / my grandma since then. With her recent passing, they finally have a chance to breathe. By working for our family, Mercy has been able to put her now 19-year-old daughter through college. But this has come at the expense of her living far away from home, visiting only once every two years, and basically watching her grow into a young woman from afar. 

From April 10-15, Mercy's daughter Regina will be visiting Hong Kong for the first time ever prior to her graduation from college. And I have arranged to be present as well in order to spoil them a little. :-)

I've set up this GoFundMe because I thought some of you out there might like to contribute to this week of fun and show them your appreciation by buying them meals, a massage, tickets to a movie, cable car, or tourist sites that they've probably never been able to experience in their 20 years living in Hong Kong. 

100% of this GoFundMe will go toward their week of FUN. And of course I will Insta-Story the whole thing so you can see them enjoy all the things. 

Feel free to specify what you would like to put your money towards if you have any ideas. (I will spend my own money on myself.)

Also we won’t be spending money just for the sake of spending the money. Anything we don’t end up using will be given to the ladies in the form of cash so they can put them toward savings and expenses (e.g. college tuition) that they have for their families back at home.

Thank you to Alfredo Lomeli and Anastasia Ali who have kicked this thing off by getting us tickets to Hong Kong Disneyland!
