Path to the Pokémon World Championships

Donation protected
Hey everyone!

We're Team Raptor, and we need your help to make our dreams come true! Our incredible Juniors and Seniors have been tearing up the Pokémon TCG scene, and now they're gearing up for the ultimate showdown at the 2024 Pokémon World Championships in Hawaii this August.

We have a webpage and a blog that documents our journey!

Meet our awesome kids: KJ, Elliott, Harry, Gustavo, and Lucan. These young talents are the heart and soul of Team Raptor, and they've been putting in the work to make it to the big leagues. KJ and Gustavo have already punched their tickets to Hawaii with their stellar performances, but our other kids are hot on their heels, just a step away from securing their spots.

Each of these young talents has their own unique journey and let me tell you, they've come a long way. Despite facing personal trials, these kids haven't let their struggles hold them back. Through sheer determination and resilience, they've pushed through obstacles and surpassed their own expectations. From overcoming shyness to battling learning challenges, they've shown incredible courage and perseverance in their development.

To qualify for the World Championships, our team has been hitting the road, attending events all across Queensland and Australia. The season runs from September to June and they are required to accumulate points across these premier events, from local tournaments to regional showdowns in order to qualify. It’s very much a grind taking the better part of a year, but they've been putting their skills to the test, facing off against the best of the best.

But here's where we need your support. Traveling to Hawaii and competing on the world stage isn't cheap, and that's where you come in. By donating to our GoFundMe campaign, you'll be helping to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and tournament fees for our amazing kids. Every dollar counts, and your generosity will make a world of difference as they chase their dreams.

These kids have been training hard, honing their skills, and pouring their hearts into the game they love. Now it's our turn to show them some love and help them make their mark on the Pokémon world. Join us in supporting Team Raptor on their journey to the top – let's make Hawaii 2024 a trip they'll never forget!

Thank you for your support, and let's go Team Raptor!
