Volunteer in Cambodia + Surprise

Merry Christmas guys! Brendon Chhor here! :D

For the longest time, I've known that I would one day like to make an impact in Cambodia, the home country in which my family had to escape in hopes for a better life in the late 1970s during the brutal Pol Pot regime.

On the other hand, my favourite uncle is finally getting married for the first time at the age of 47 (he hasn't had the chance to go to any bars in the last 20 years to pick up chicky babes because he has been the only one living with and taking care of my grandma-his mother) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on the 29th of December. 

My goal is to kill two birds with one stone!
The plan is to surprise my uncle as well as my mum and dad that will be travelling to Cambodia from Australia. While I'm there, after the wedding, I plan to do a month of volunteering by teaching English to children in orphanages. :)

I need to raise $2200 dollars before the 27th of December so I can buy a one-way ticket from Canada to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The flights are currently going for $1850. The $2200 will cover the plane ticket as well as tax and the fees that go fund me charges. I intend on guilt tripping my parents to keep me alive so all I need is $2200. I know I should have started this earlier but I only just got inspired to start this today.. I believe it's not too late!

Your time invested reading my story is appreciated deeply! It would mean more than the world to me even if you donated as little as $5 as I know every dollar counts. It would be such a wonderful Christmas present! I promise to document every single step of the way on my go pro including the priceless reactions on my family's faces as well as those of the Cambodian children! :)
