Surprise Relief Fund for a Missionary Family of 8

*Due to safety precautions with missionaries, I am unable to post pictures of the family.*

My name is Shelby (Shirey) Tucker, and I am looking to raise money for a part of my family, as a surprise 'relief fund' for Christmas.

While I understand that everyone is struggling during this time of COVID-19, I want to try to spread some positivity to my family who are missionaries overseas.

Some of you may know this particular part of my family. If you do, you're very blessed because they are some of the most wonderful and kind people I know. I won't be able to share as much detail as I would like to justify this GoFundMe, due to safety protocols and Mission Board rules, but I will explain as best as I can. 

Basically, they had to leave everything they own behind overseas, because of COVID & will be changing locations as soon as possible. As a family of 8, abandoning the majority of your belongings has to be hard, especially with 6 children. My goal is to raise money to surprise them for Christmas, so that maybe some of their needs will be met, material things be replaced, & potentially a portion of travel be covered.

I've never asked for anything this big, but it was put on my heart today to at least make the effort. 
Each and every bit counts, even if it's just a share. I would really love to reach or surpass my goal to make it a little easier on the family. 

If you've made it this far: thank you for reading and understanding what I am hoping to accomplish. 

Merry Christmas.
