We are on a $300.00 per month payment plan so I will be keeping the donation site open through February 1 2019.
Ben's birthday is coming up on March 31st and if you are thinking of picking him up a gift card, maybe donate to his trip fund instead!
Now let me gush about Ben: This steadfast, brilliantly creative young man works hard, both at home and at school and he recently took up a part-time job so he can contribute to the cost. He puts 100% of his heart, soul and head into everything he does. He maintains a 4.2 GPA, is still playing electric bass like a total boss and anyone who's spent time with Ben and his little sister knows how compassionate, patient and mature beyond his years he is. Around home, he pitches in and does his part and then some, without complaints, he's my right hand and I truly don't know what I would do without him.
Ben deserves this trip, he's more than earned it, and I'm excited to be kicking off his high school graduation countdown with something that is truly all about and for Ben.
The phenomenal support and generosity we three already receive, every single day, from our family and family of friends is a huge part of why Ben is the incredible person he is.
Thank you so much everyone - for this and for your constant support!
Mali and Ben
